Needless to say, a serious organizing party was in order for this space. I don’t know about you, but getting a space organized makes me feel great, like maybe I can keep one little area of my life under control. ;)
I decided to tackle this area of our basement because I’d really like to have some clue where my tools and paint are so I can work more efficiently.
I bought this inexpensive plastic shelf from Lowe’s to store my paint supplies. I used the other shelves I already had to organize my decorations, tools, etc.

    Lady Susan, you should be proud! what you have done, is more than many MEN would do...or are willing to do. chaos & order is kind of like good & evil....nothing evil/chaotic can last forever....good always has, & always will come out on top...your basement looks FANTASTIC!! PS: the inspiration book is cool too! : )

    You've inspired me! I am happy to know that other people have these issues to deal with. I am making a classroom in my basement and gathered lots of ideas from Hometalk!
