I’m a little sad that I neglected to take a true Before photo, but on Sunday morning, Suzanne’s storage shed (known as Dale’s house) was so stuffed with boxes and crates and buckets and miscellany that not only was there no way to get inside to find anything, there was no way to put anything more inside. Objects were piled on top of one another, and when we needed to stow some painting gear inside because it was going to rain, we had to lean against the door to close it. There’s still one box stored under the bed in Serendipity (aka my tiny house) because it was simply not possible to make room for it in the shed.
By Sunday afternoon, Dale’s house was empty, swept, and the wasp nest discovered in the corner was dead and gone.
By Monday afternoon, it was organized. In this case, a picture or two is worth a thousand words, I suspect.
All of the objects in the front of both images (that big open gray bin and the crates next to it) are going to eventually get listed on eBay and sent off to live in someone else’s storage area or closet. Meanwhile, I’m pretty darn satisfied with our work. I had the impulse this morning to go take another picture, just because those organized shelves are so gratifying to me. I didn’t quite alphabetize the paint cans, but I was tempted. In the crate of comics, all items are organized by name and number. Every remaining box could have a single label on it specifying exactly what it contains — no “miscellaneous desk” or “junk drawer” boxes left. Satisfaction!
Meanwhile Suzanne is resolved that today — which is her official day off — is going to include only fun things, so I’m also looking forward to a fun, and rather more relaxing day. Time to get started with it!
Enjoy your fun day!
I did! We ate all three meals outside, and I thought of you during dinner — I made salmon topped with goat cheese/parmesan/cilantro pesto, with roasted cherry tomatoes topped with the same mix, plus salads of mixed greens, raspberries, goat cheese and toasted pecans, with balsamic. You would have approved, I think!
Wowsers!! You rock! LOL That shed reminds me of the one we had at our place in AZ — and I was forever rearranging stuff in there. When we sold it, we left just about everything in the shed there for the new owner. We told him, keep it, sell it, give it away or toss it. We don’t want/need any of it. LOL Kudos to you and Suzanne!!
We worked hard! It was very satisfying, though.
