Today, my mom and I spent a few hours cleaning out the basement. After all of the project-finishing, organizing, cleaning, shopping for Lucketts, shipping for the online shop, etc, the basement was a mess. I can tolerate a messy basement for a while, because I can close the door and not look at it. There comes a time, though, when I’m tripping over things and can’t find things and it feels like things are everywhere and they are crowding out my productivity and creativity.
We worked really hard and both the old and new parts of the basement are cleaned and organized.
Everything that’s finished for Lucketts is priced and packed…
…and we have a holding area for pieces I’m still working on.
It feels amazing to have those spaces cleaned and ready for work! Next week I hope to get some of these pieces finished, so I can show off some good ole furniture makeovers.
Since pictures of the basement aren’t all that pretty, I took some pictures of this adorable stool I bought…
I love the color, the wear of the paint, the turned legs…
…And the little surprise that it folds open to make it into a step stool.
I even love the paint splatters.
As much as I love it, I tagged it and added it to the Lucketts pile.
I also added two more boxes of ironstone to the pile.
I hope Lucketts shoppers are coming to buy ironstone, because I have a lot of it!
