The scary closet in the basement
So after living here for a year and a half, I finally got up the courage to empty the scary closet in the back corner of the basement. Thankfully no mice or rats or spiders jumped out at me ( or scurried or anything). But I did find some very cool stuff. Some very old linoleum tiles (brown with yellow and off white streaks), floor wax,an old plastic toilet seat stuffed into the box from a wooden toilet seat, old bottles of various stuff (terpentine, and some Gallo wine!) and probably every can of paint ever brought into this house since the 40's! (the house is 1916). Someone must have either built the closet then or cleaned it out around the 40's, because there's nothing older than that in there(except maybe the tiles?). But it all sort of tells a story... :-) and I lived to tell it!!!
