This buffet houses some of the items I use for my Creative Memories business. This area is to the left once you walk into the unfinished basement portion. 2/3 of my basement is finished, which I use for my CM business for my customers to come over and scrap. I can leave it set up all the time - tables and products - which I love!
One before picture and two after pictures - This area is to the right - the first picture is before and then there are two after pictures. Most of the before pile was stuff to be put away. The 4 boxes in the after pictures are for the June yard sale. Once those are gone, it'll look a lot nicer! I bought a 3-tier cart at Wal-Mart which now houses my trash bags, light bulbs, and cleaning supplies for the downstairs. I also bought a rectangle storage box (on the bottom right), which now holds construction and color paper. The two storage tubs on top of that are other craft supplies - crayons, markers, etc. I also reorganized both of the shelves. I used my label maker to mark the drawers and storage boxes.
Reorganized and cleaned out laundry area. Rearranged some things - the silk flowers are now on a top shelf (see picture above - right), I moved some things over to the paint/household shelves (below), and I made better use of the old microwave cart that I use for laundry supplies. I stored some things behind the closed doors! And look, you can see my ironing board, which I used last night to iron some kitchen curtains. In the picture above these on the left, my ironing board was a storage base! The blue lid is there for a purpose - it keeps my cat out of the sump pump!
I did some rearranging here by putting like things together and got rid of the vacuum cleaner box that held the broken yard things on sticks/poles, which I also tossed in the dumpster!
Reorganized this area. Threw away the folding chair with no back and got rid of lots of empty boxes I was saving "just in case!" My cat likes to lay on the very top of the storage tubs so I put a piece of sheep skin up top for her. I didn't get that part in the picture.
All in all, I'm pleased as punch with the results! Thanks, Laura, for hosting this Challenge and for cheering us on!
