Some Not So Exciting Photos

Old Storage Room

So here is how the storage closet was right after they removed the furnace. The paint looks bad, there are pipes coming out of the ceiling, there is literally a hole through the wall to the outside. We did not change the concrete floor because it is a storage closet where we store weed whackers and such so it didn’t really make sense, we just sealed it. In this photo our stuff has been removed and in the new photos it has been restored.


Hubby built some new shelves with some old doors, aka the lighter colored shelves. At the moment we are storing all of our paintings and family photos there because we haven’t hung anything. We also have tons of packing boxes. In the huge Rusta box is all our daughter’s old school books, work, and art which I just organized today. Though you don’t see it the baseboard was fixed. We’ve also mounted our rakes, weed whacker, and winter shovels woot! The other shelves has like our Christmas stuff, including our sad plastic tree that actually might be older than we are. Sewing machine, fabric, some empty product boxes lol So now you see our clutter. We have another closet with sport stuff, not that we have much of that.
And here are the new lights in the hall (4 identical ones)! The hall is not finished or even started except for the lights and removing the baseboards because Sam has a stomach virus.

    Now I wonder where the ‘not-so-exciting’ part really is.. 🙂

  2. There is always so much to do. I have succeeded in finding only part of my enclosed porch that has been mostly used as storage for the better part of the last four or five years. I had to get a new (used) car – as the other one wasn’t worth the fixing. So even though it wasn’t that much bigger I’ve rearranged some space in the garage so my hubby can at least get to his work bench without me having to remove my car. (It is only a one car garage and my car when not in used lives in it!) I’ve also been rearranging the storage shed and our laundry room.

    I have gotten rid of and recycled quite a bit of ‘stuff’ this summer. But there is more to go! It does help when one loves their home 😉

    • We have moved around a bit and haven’t been able to accumulate so much (give us 10 years in this house and then ask again lol). The garage is hubbies workshop we don’t use it for the car. That is the only room I don’t organize, that is his sacred space. From living in small apartments I have actually gotten quite good at organizing and finding space. With a small child though we do accumulate stuff and she has a harder time letting go, she doesn’t mind donating but don’t try and throw anything away!

      • I can understand the child’s view. It’s hard for me to toss stuff too. And with grandchildren there’s even more stuff that’s just for them here. But I am trying to not get so much. They watch commercials and get the gimmies. I tell them I give books, small things and hugs! 😉

      • I think there is an element of trying to keep up with her friends in there as well or seeing things she wants when she visits their homes like games and stuff. They don’t advertise on the children’s channels in Sweden so she never sees ads. During X-mas though toy stores send out catalogs and then she gets the gimmes. She has trouble just browsing a toy store as well too much temptation!
