While I was already on a roll in the basement,
I ventured in to the creepy back room.
I have no other words for this room except for..
This is a space that I would never enter.
simply said, I just creeps me out.
There is 30 years worth of crap stuffed back there..
and who knows what kinds of creatures live in there.
Sporting some thick gloves, a bottle of tequila and a box of garbage bags,
I fell elbow deep into this mess.
Ok.. so I didn't really have the tequila, but I wanted some.
Honestly.. although the table was piled with parts, and tools, and home repair supplies,
I pretty much emptied the whole thing into the trash.
It's like the closet rule, if I haven't worn it in a year.. it's gone.
If we haven't used it in 20 years.. it's gone!
I couldn't believe it... In less then 2 hours I was ready to slap some paint on the walls.
And for the record, in the 26 years that I have lived here, I've never seen the surface of that table.
or under it!
After I got some paint on the walls, I hung some pegboard
filling it was the fun part!
Once the pegboard was filled, I finished painting the walls, ceiling and floor.
Then came the best part.
To give it an industrial look,
I painted some large chipboard letters with copper and silver spray paint and hung them on the concrete wall using industrial strength Velcro.
( works like a charm)
When the weather breaks I am going to take the stools outside and spray paint them.
What color? I have no idea yet.
Once the room was finished there was just one more tiny thing to do.
And that was to add a little mouse door..
because all creepy back rooms need a mouse door.
Oh, and you'll never believe this,
the whole time I was cleaning I did not see one spider, centipede or scary pincher bug.
I have officially run out of rooms to purge.
What a great feeling!
Have a great day.
