My 'junk drawer' shelf, FINISHED!! Before & after pics
OK, I'm ridiculously proud of this. So I'm going to fill up an entire thread w/ pics and commentary.
Then you can all pat me on the back!! And maybe there will be something inspiring or useful for you.
BACKGROUND: I have a triangular closet that is my only "linen/storage" closet for the main part of my apartment. (We own our apartment, so no worries about permission.)
I've been on a mission to straighten it out, and had gotten all the easier shelves done. The "junk drawer" and tools section was left.
Because the closet is triangular, I end up w/ odd spaces left if I use rectangular things. Nonetheless, this is working out nicely. In fact, I've capitalized on that very fact.
So, here is the before:
Note that these are the big challenges:
-what to do with the tape??
-what to do with the light bulbs?
-what tools to keep?
-How to improve access?
And here is the after:
I definitely tossed a bunch of stuff, but a lot of it is simply reorganized.
Lots of tools went to the basement.
