It is to the point where I practically have to play 'Where's Waldo' to gather the tools and supplies to do any sort of project. I needed more storage space, and the big green cupboard in the basement of my in-laws' former house is one solution.
I first introduced you to this cupboard in THIS post from February. My father-in-law built it out of 3/4" plywood, and it is heavy, heavy, HEAVY. In order for The Husband and I to carry it out of the basement and load it into our truck, we first took off all the doors.
It was still heavy, but at least it we could lift it like this without hurting ourselves. Here it is loaded into the truck for the trip to its new home.
We have the perfect place for it along the back wall of our basement workshop. It fits right between some pipes in the corner and the edge of the window ... almost like it was made for this spot. We raised it off the floor with bricks and shims, and screwed it to the wall ... so it won't fall over and crush someone.
The cupboard is 6 feet high and 5 1/2 feet wide.
Look at all this space! Now, imagine it filled with bins of screws, and scrapers, and all sorts of other tools and supplies. A place for everything, and everything in its place ... that's what I'm aiming for.
Now I don't have an excuse to avoid tackling this. (Viewer discretion is advised ... this next photo is may be upsetting.)
I will work at it a little at a time, and eventually I'll get the place whipped into shape.
Wish me luck.
