After taking a couple of weeks off because of my back, I hit the basement hard today. One of these days I’m going to actually have to relax on my ‘vacation day’. While I still have a lot to do I am pretty pleased with everything I’ve accomplished today. Here’s a reminder of what my laundry/storage room looked like when I started.
And here is what it looks like today as I enter the home stretch. Can you believe the table in the picture below was underneath that mess? Now, in the interest of ‘keeping it real’ I should tell you that that I moved a lot of stuff to another room. Some of these items will be donated or will be moved back into the laundry/storage room when I get it all situated.
Here was my donation pile that I got rid of today. After I went through, straightened and re-folded everything in this pile I ended up with 15 grocery bags for Goodwill, 4 bags for my nieces and about 10 outfits for Dress for Success . The TV will go on the curb for the local ‘man in a truck’ to collect.
I’ve gotten a couple of items to pick up to finish the room
- Can of black spray paint. If you notice in the above pictures I have some bright yellow storage shelves. I’m planning on painting those black so they are a little more subdued.
- Shelf to hang next to the washing machine for laundry detergent
- Hanger to hang my ironing board and iron
- Two clothes racks with canvas sacks
I’m hoping by the time I go back to work next Tuesday to have the laundry room put together. I’ll keep you updated!
