|Ta-da!! I just LOVE the contrast of the dark stairs with the white cabinets underneath.|
So for a real before image I dug around and found some pictures from a few years ago when Matt and Mike helped Pete bring his new pinball machine downstairs. Note the old-school phone shelf and, my favorite, wood paneling, in the background.
Back to the pretty pretty pictures. I started moving all my desk/office things down to the shelves and cabinets this weekend. But I'm sorting and throwing out/recycling anything I can as I go along, so I'm not quite finished. I painted a stripe on the back wall before the cabinets went in. They're pretty scary looking close-up, my frog tape didn't work so well on the bumpy basement walls. So Pete and I are deciding if we want to fix the stripes or just paint the walls the paler color.
|Surprise! It's not cabinets - it's a giant bookcase!!|
|The rest are pull-out drawers.|
|Ellie likes this bottom drawer for herself, she put her pouf in it.|
|Lateral files in the desk area.|
