Tell me you remember the big project that ended all big projects:
You remember, don'tcha? Lotsa hard work? Insane amounts of injuries? That one?
And perhaps you might recall how I revealed the open, unfinished spaces on both sides of this little bed nook:
Yeah, I know. I'm a weenee. And don't you judge my snaps of this room! I've localized the only natural light in the whole dang room to the bed! Everything else is plunged into darkness!
Thanks for reading my disclaimer.
But as I was saying--
it was time to get off my rear and finish these little corners. First up? The "easy" side. I am using huge air quotes, here.
Incidentally, you know you use too many air quotes when your children use them at random points throughout the day.
So, I was tellin' y'alls last week that while I wanted huge! fun! plans for these spaces, usefulness won out.
See, this room is still our playroom of sorts, and so (tasteful) toy shelving is deeply needed. And so I got to work.
You know, I'm not a huge fan of the look of adjustable shelving, but it's just so derned useful. Used the daddy-o's shelf pin jig and it's accompanying spring-loaded drill bit and worked it.
Call me a wimp, but that spring loaded drill bit just exhausts me. I's out in the garage for an hour, and it wasn't pretty.
Ya know Miss Piggy's exhausted sound? Yeah. I sounded like that. You need only watch the first 5 seconds to get the idea.
But I digress.
Here's the bare bones of this little project.
And when am I gonna learn not to be a lazy A and use a folding chair?
You know what this room needs? A giant, oversized poster of Atlantic City.
(name that movie!)
Er, I mean, baskets. With cute little tags.
I will have you know that I am by far the most organized person you will ever meet.
You think I'm gonna perfectly sort and organize all my kids junk so they can toss it out and mix it back together just for kicks?
I think that may be the definition of insanity right there.
But you know, just in case I want to put on airs, I'll just flip these over.
Man, we have a lot of balls in this house.
And finally, we are done. With side one, only.
And ya know, the beauty of it is, as my boy grows up, these can be switched around.
shelves full of "crap", "balls" and "more crap". Sounds about right in this house.
