We have a fairly large room between our kitchen and garage that - until recently - has served entirely as a staging area for other projects. The past month has been devoted to making it a more useable space. We hired a local carpenter to build some custom shelves, then painted and organized, and painted some more.
Before - entry into kitchen area
We LOVE the new set-up. It's easy for Aaron to put away his own stuff, and everything has its place.
The previous entry to the kitchen is in the process of becoming my office nook, which provides room for a proper guest room upstairs - an exciting addition with some fun guests expected this year!
