Thank you Melissa!! I would've never gotten this awful job done with out this big added incentive!! Visit Melissa at: http://theinspiredroom.net/ to see all the other "after pictures".
Just in case you didn't see the "before" photos, these first 2 are them!! Scary isn't it! Anything I didn't know what to do with came down here. It wasn't easy getting to the washer & dryer! Can you even see them over there??
Quick, get to the 3rd photo!!!
Here it is!!! The miracle of cleaning and de-cluttering!! It's so satisfying!! I hope I can keep it this way!
I have shelving now! I'm going to use these empty shelves as a pantry. I couldn't do it before my cellar was waterproofed with french drains etc. but now my cellar is nice and dry. The boiler room is on the other side of that wall so it's actually warm down here in the winter. When they re-did my septic, for some reason they put that pipe right in the middle of the room at "knock yourself out" height! That's why I have to keep that shelf there. I truly stood up under there once and saw stars!!!
See, after cleaning off the table, I have a place for all my laundry stuff. (Better than on top of the dryer!)
This was a huge job for me alone because I had to get rid of so much stuff. I don't even know what half of it was! The worse part was using the shop vac to clean everything including years worth of cobwebs and spiders plus the bees are still getting in down there.
Without this inspiration of the Procrastinator's Party it still wouldn't be done! Thanks Melissa! When is the next one??I feel so productive : ))
