The topic: Storage and organization

----------------------------------------------

I got it!

So, I have the totally awesome Kobalt storage cabinet for my paper and stuff. In the last photo on that entry, you can see the other side, where I have more containers.

One of the problems with this has been getting to the container I need. Pulling these off of the top of that one, you know? And I had to reach over the vinyl storage. I'd been after Brian to make me some shelves, but he's just too darned busy. Frustrated, I started looking online

I found something over on the Lowe's website that I thought would work. Brian wasn't really sure of what I wanted to do, for some reason he was thinking I wanted this for under my work table. Nope, I want it right there! And he said to go ahead and get three. I ordered them Friday and he picked them up yesterday morning. They weren't expensive, the shelves are adjustable and they each hold up to 160 pounds. Which is more than enough. I took some pichers....

Here we have the before. Brian suggested I move the vinyl storage away from the table where I'd be putting the shelves. This blocks my heat press, but it's not that big of a deal to push the vinyl holder back when I need to access the press. And it has the added benefit that now the cats won't be able to spray the little containers and I won't have to cover the shelves for pee safety. (That's what I'm hoping, anyway.) That blue blanket to the top left of the picture is what I used to protect from cat marking. BTW, that table is six feet long and two feet deep. The height is adjustable. It will hold 3000 pounds. I got it on Amazon a while back. I have some stuff under it, now I can put more stuff there since I can access it!  More stuff! Always an awesome thing!


The shelves out of the box (I got three sets). See my two Cameos under the table? Gonna try to use them at the same time today. 141031018
 


Progress


All done!

With the vinyl storage pulled out, I won't have to stretch to find what I need, it's all right there. I think this will be much nicer to work with. The only thing is now we have to come up with something to keep the cats out of the rafters. They're not young and spry anymore and I don't want them up there. I think we'll probably lay lattice over the openings. So, they see it and they see that they can't get up there. Fingers crossed that they stay down until it goes up.

I have to say this past week turned out to be a huge Yay! for me.
