So Good...

--Prime patch in back entry way
--Unstick drawer in pine dresser
--Move out black dresser and drawers
--Fix stair edger in back entry
--Remove "excess" shelving by excercise bench

This was the to-do list I left my husband when I went to run errands today.

It's all done.
Taking down shelving and removing storage pieces--like a dresser, feels a bit like paying off a substantial amount on your credit card--except the space is tangible. But it's the same sense of release, of freedom.

He's shop-vaccuming the area now, or I'd get pics. I'll update and post some later.

Ikea has their "BRIT" curtains on sale right now, $7/pair. I put a pair up on the living room windows by the fireplace last week and realised they'd be perfect for the basement. So, I bought five pairs today (the husband said he wanted some in the workshop. In the workshop? OK.) I put up the first pair and I'm going to have to hem.

I am so thrilled.

Whoo hoo! Excellent progress!

Doesn't it feel good, though?

Excellent - and the shelves went, too? Brilliant. It sounds as though it's all going according to plan!

yes, the wood from the shelves is sitting in a tidy pile. I overheard the husband muttering to the dog--and I think that wood is destined to become a doghouse. I think that may explain why the husband took it down so quickly!
