The kitchen took its toll on the basement. All the cutting of beadboards took place in my workshop....on the floor. Yes, I'm a professional. ;-) Then the mess took over my workbench....and the rest of the basement followed suit, as you remember. Okay okay, the rest of the basement was already chaos and the kitchen helped it over the edge of the cliff.
The VanOort Tornado went through and this is the bench NOW! Wha?? I could actually DO a project.....ON A BENCH. Goodbye floor, it was nice knowin' ya. And the tools....so THAT'S where they were hiding?
On another wall of the workshop was my old drafting table.....covered in junk as well. That was the motif I was going for in my basement decor...."covered in junk" chic.
And NOW! Hooray....another clear workspace. TWO WHOLE tabletops cleared....that's a miracle in our house. As soon as I have any energy I'll be back at the projects....winter is zapping me.
On a sidenote....how awesome is the workbench? Do you know what the table top is? A BOWLING ALLEY LANE. Completely wackadoo, right? Found it at the bless-ed ReStore....total bargain. I left it behind once...then my dad insisted I go back to look at it again....thank goodness for dads.
Wanna see more of "Project Basement".....check it out! We're just about done!
