Scott and I tackled the basement today! Of course when you're doing something stressful like messing with people's "stuff" it can get a little hairy, but we both survived (barely!) I decided this time I would take a "before" AND "after" picture.
If you know me, then you know that this mess has been a nightmare for me. Normally I am an organized person and I like things to be in their place. Since having kids, things have changed. However, I still can't stand a HUGE mess like this!
Each year Bismarck has a messiest garage contest. I seriously think we could have won a messiest basement contest, hands down. I would have been too embarrassed to enter though.
Here's the after picture!!!! An amazing transformation! We have had this big piece of carpet out in the garage for several months. A friend who was redoing her basement was getting new carpet and asked if we would be interested in this piece they were removing. We will be using it only temporarily, until we can get to the point of really redoing the basement. This will do for now.
