This is what it looked like before we started.
I hear what you're thinking: HOARDERS. Ahem.
I'm not going to do much in the way of making excuses, other than to say that I have had a lot of people working against me in this venue. For example, I am storing furniture and personal belongings for my firstborn and still sorting through items left behind by my ex-fiance and his children. Today, however, I wrangled the assistance of said firstborn and my youngest. This is what it looked like after we got finished.
My car is parked in the garage! What a concept!
I have yet to organize the items on the tool bench and the steel shelves. But at least I know what those items are. I want to have the antique chair on the right reupholstered, and am trying to figure out a better way to store the other one as well as the leather desk chair that belongs to my oldest son.
The above items are for sale: a piano bench, a copy machine, a love seat, and a Wave Master.
I also have an entire unused gallon of purple paint. Interested?
The lawn mower will live in this part of the garage again after these things are gone.
We threw away gallons of trash, hauled an entire carload to Goodwill, and set a couple of pieces of particle board furniture curbside for pickup. We also cleaned out the back room, which you cannot see.
What a great way to start my summer vacation - by tackling a project I could have easily dreaded for the entire summer and beyond.
Yep - today I ate the biggest, ugliest frog I could find. Tomorrow I'm going to take some time to play.
