Tackle it Tuesday: The Basement


I'm back from my "Tackle it Tuesday" hiatus, in need of a little extra motivation on this basement project that seems to be taking me forever. I've been trying to rid out unnecessary clutter and organize stored items into one storage room. The ultimate goal is to make the main area more like living space, less like a junk yard. So my tackle for today was just to make a dent in this corner. Check it out!

Before:


After:


It's the magic of Tackle it Tuesday! Eventually this will be a sitting area, so there are still lots of things to shift into place. In fact, I still have a long way to go on the decluttering -- behind me is a huge mess that includes a pool table heaped to the ceiling with stuff to sort -- but this was some major progress for one day. I have a sense of accomplishment now that'll hopefully propel me on to the next corner. LoL

Thanks for the motivation, Carolyn! Just two more tackles to go today -- dinner and a soccer game. ;o)

I can't believe how much you did! That was an amzing project.

I'd love to feature your before and after photos in a new gallery I'm creating. It would link back to your blog, too.

If you'd be interested in more details, just email me at housekeeping.guide@about.com :)
