Our basement is a work-in-progress, and while it's definitely still a mess down there, it's a huge improvement over its move-in condition. When we bought the Bee Hive the basement walls and floor were splattered with the solution used when the previous owners had the asbestos tile removed, the walls hadn't been painted in forever, there were three foot deep shelves along one wall that were totally useless, and the washer and dryer were in the middle of the room.
much work during our first week at the Bee Hive, we had plenty of new shelving to use as an extension of our kitchen in our nice clean, freshly painted basement.
Gorm storage shelves!
Our little pantry area is directly to the left of the door and just next to the stack o' Goodwill:
When S returns from paradise we'll assemble the new shelves and perhaps I'll even stow our yard sale items neatly on the new shelves, instead of in the middle of the room.
