A Bit of Basement Organization

After a few intense hours of rolling up my sleeves and digging in, I got a huge portion of our
I took this horrifying picture of my basement last week.
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.
The first step to total world domination? An organized paint shelf.
I attempted to corral my tools and decorating/organizing supplies into zones.
I already feel so much more productive in this space.
I keep an inspiration notebook out so I can handily reference project ideas.

    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!
