So, before number 3 comes along in a few weeks, we had a mission to organize our basement. We fell in love with this house mainly because it had a partially finished basement with a bedroom and bath and a living area. But, it also had a large unfinished area were we could use for storage.
Several weeks ago, My Sweetie and I (I held the boards) built these shelves to bring some order to our chaos.
Here is the before picture:
This is after we built the shelves:
I am embarrassed to say that this whole wall is nothing but decorations:
I also had My Sweetie install a bar to hang winter coats on as well as these garment bags:
I started organizing my wrapping paper and bags in these types of garment bags years ago! I put gift bags in one and wrapping paper in another. I love having everything right where I need it!
Here is another part of the basement where we put more shelves:
These boxes are mainly children's clothing and odd and ends:
I also had my Sweetheart Handyman install utility hooks to hang up my wreaths. Now I can just pull them down when I need them and they don't have to be squished into boxes.
