Have you ever started a project that turned out to be BIGGER than you thought it would?
Last January, Andy and I went to a food storage class. The presenter talked about her food storage room where she has everything organized. Andy and I decided that we need to get our food storage, that was located in several different areas throughout the house and garage, organized into one room. Since we are now "empty-nesters" we have the space to do it. Andy drew up plans, got out his trusty tools, and with some great ideas in his head, set out to accomplish the task of organizing the food storage.
Let me show you what has been done.
One remodeled bathroom
This needed to be done so the room on the other side of the bathroom could be better utilized since the original bathroom was oddly shaped. It's a good thing we did this. As we were tearing out the shower, we discovered horrible, black mold! YUK! This house was built in 1972. We've lived in it for 10 years. It's time to get things done! Andy completely gutted this room and rebuilt it. He even tiled the huge shower. I hung up the towel and put the scale on the floor.
Laundry room moved to the furnace room.
This needed to be done because our new storage room is in the old laundry room.
Andy put in a new window, sheet rocked and insulated the walls, made the folding table, covered the floor, etc. I put the plants in the window and the fabric softener sheets on the dryer! :)
This is the room outside the bathroom. Andy made the book shelves and the almost finished desk. He has done a beautiful job on every project he tackled. I helped load the books in the book shelves.
You're probably wondering about the food storage room. Well, we're working toward that. Our food storage is still in several areas of the house and garage but it will be heavenly when "we" get it done! Andy has discovered a new love...woodworking. He has acquired a few new "tools" along the way that has made his projects go much more smoothly.
We'll eventually get to the reason we started this project but, until then, has anyone seen that #10 can of pinto beans?
