There is one war I tend to avoid. I can't take the carnage, you know?
And I hesitate slightly to show pictures of this gruesome state of affairs lest you all judge me harshly. But with so much going on, a girl's gotta pick her battles!
Since we have family coming in this weekend, we are in need of the basement so the war had to end.
So I came,
As I wiped the sweat from my brow, content with the scene before me, I began to reflect upon what I saw.
Now, I've always called this "poor man's storage". But according to all the design and craft blogs, this is what is known as "repurposing".
Okay, so granted I didn't paint it all cute but there are six diaper boxes that I have covered in cute paper and ribbon that are used as storage containers in other rooms of the house. And this was done WWAAYYY before I started seeing it pop up all over the blogosphere.
Apparently I'm way ahead of my time and very fashionable.
Now, if I start seeing ideas for how to make ghetto closet shelves out of an old crib, I'll have to start to wonder....
At any rate, there are still several diaper boxes available if any of you would like to... repurpose.
And ever since I've cleaned up, guess where the kids are playing and spending all their time? Perhaps I should have waited until the day my parents are suppose to be here.
*sigh* Cleaning is a double edge sword.
