Sounds simple, huh?!
So, we took a brief hiatus from remodeling over the last week due to some church obligations and some Michigan traveling (baby shower and graduation party). Also, Kyle got a new short-term project when this week started...
So, before this remodel began, we had A LOT of stuff upstairs. A lot a lot. And obviously, it had to go somewhere...
|The other mattress, office chair, and bookcases from upstairs are blocking the front door and have made a wonderful jungle gym for the cats this summer.|
|Oh, and we have stuff that CAN'T go in the basement in the dining room (stuff like Kyle's comics, etc.)|
|We're also utilizing the folding table in the basement...|
|Oh and one large corner of the basement as well!|
I showed them to Kyle, and he said, "I can do that." Music to my ears! Ours are a little different from the plans because we needed a shelf for the bottom layer of totes so nothing will get wet and also our ceilings aren't as high as theirs are. We also used recycled paneling from upstairs instead of OSB to save some money. Glad we did!
He built one set of shelves yesterday and one today. Here are results:
|What the shelves look like all empty (cats were fascinated)|
|Annnnnnnnd full of stuff!|
By the way...on the shelf packed full of stuff just above? The purple tote, the four blue totes on the center shelf, and the large tote on the center shelf? All baby clothes, organized by size. I have a problem!
All of our DIY projects just might get done yet! Hurray!
