We've lived in our house for a little over a year now, and I'm just warming up to the idea of tackling the basement. Granted, part of my initial hesitation was a small rodent problem (thank goodness we never saw any activity upstairs!), but that's all resolved now - shout out to Mark the pest guy!
So now that I don't have to worry about unwanted company in the basement I've decided it's time to put some effort into it. Also known as, "we need to organize the crap we throw down there and then forget about." The first step in this process was building some shelves. Have you ever priced shelves? Big sturdy ones that you'd be willing to store your breakable holiday decorations on? Lemme tell you, that's an eye opening experience. Instead of breaking the bank on shelving units I sent the husband a bunch of links to DIY some "custom" shelves.
So there you have it - basement organization on a (mostly) sewing blog posted on a Friday night. Not too shabby for a Really Random Thursday post, huh?
