i just had to take a couple of vacation days. i haven't had more than a couple in about 14 months of work. so, what did i do with my two vacation days? why, i worked around the house, of course!
our basement is a nightmare. cardboard boxes, bags, plastic containers of every size, christmas trees, you name it. so my goal was to build some shelves to shove all of it on to.
2 4x8 sheets of plywood
2 boxes of decking screws (torx head, no less)
circular saw (circa 1985)
zippo measuring tape
pencil (sharpened with a box knife)
the shelves ended up being 16 feet long by 2 feet deep, and 2 shelves high. there is plenty of room beneath the bottom shelves for large containers. and they still aren't big enough. while the basement looks pretty good right now, there are still things that won't fit on the shelves. ug.
it may be time for a special trash pick up....
