Then and Now
Sunday was garage purging day. Wow. What a workout.
Here’s the garage before we got started. Argh. What a mess.
I went to Lowes early in the morning and bought two metal shelves. I picked these kind (in the pic below) because they were easy to assemble, and I had one like it already. I’m going for a uniform look. My idea is that when I’m all done, at some point I’ll purchase new painting tarps and use that as fabric to create a drape to cover the shelf contents.
Here’s the after:
The whole row of stuff in the front of the new shelves is either freecycle (a Yahoo group) or trash. There’s some stuff sitting outside still as well that will go to the dump. It’s almost embarassing how much trash we filled up to think that was all sitting in our garage all this time. But like one of my readers commented it’s easy to just toss stuff in there and think, well, I’ll deal with it later. Later sometimes never comes.
