Project Basement: Complete!!

Last night we finished cleaning up our basement! It only took us living here (almost) three years, to finally get it how we want it! =)

Here are some (very embarrassing) "before" pictures:

Man, this is like a picture from one of those TV shows!

This is actually after Philip had already cleared space to assemble that shelf in the back corner...

These boxes and the mattress had been put here after Philip cleared space for the shelf

.... and a few days and a LOT of hours later... the "after" pictures!

A slight change

Bins and shelves Rock!

Check out my creative space on the back wall!!

...and this is what happens when you spend too Much time in your basement! =)
(This is a freshly laundered mop head)

Woohoo - Look at all this SPACE!

And... to reward ourselves, we're taking off tomorrow to spend a couple days here:

... in a cabin on the Gulf in Alabama!

I don't think we'll have internet access there, so you won't here from us until we return home on Friday.
