Basement cleaned :P

I have a huge unfinished room in the basement that we use for storage, and my roommates have treated it like a trash can- literally leaving trash on the floor. So today I cleaned- found a dead little friend (who knows how long heís been there), gave away some stuff, and have a pile for the dump. Ordered some waterproofing paint to help seal the walls, and some paint for the floors. Hopefully it will help brighten up the space!

Before (I wish I had a better pic, but was actually taking a pic of the stupid insulation- but you can see the trash all over).

I know it means a lot to have that space cleaned up. Way to go.

What a good feeling to have crossed this task off your list. Hopefully painting it will help roomies want to keep it clean.

Feels so good to accomplish a project! Looks good!

I posted a couple projects I did last week. I still keep opening the doors and admiring my work!!! I've moved a few things that were out back incorrectly!

Next week I plan to tackle all my Christmas decor. I just dumped what I used in a spare bedroom! There's lots I haven't used in a few years. If I don't want it it's gone!

I've been working on making the spare bedroom/junk room into my office. I've filled my trash dumpster twice, and filled the recycle dumpster once.

Amiga- we have a Facebook group in my neighborhood for free stuff... I just put it out on the porch, and they grab it.

Today, as I started waterproofing, a dead mouse almost fell on my head 🤮
