House projects.... what else!

We are still plugging away at the basement. I posted the last items on Craig's List that need to go. If they don't move, the next sunny day they are heading outside with a big FREE sign. One of the positive aspects of doing so much basement cleaning and reorganizing is that it is forcing me to finish some incomplete projects just to get them out of the way. For example, we bought an old wall hanging cabinet for our bathroom 3 years ago. It has been sitting in the basement waiting for it's coat of paint. It sat there long enough that we started to use it as an additional work bench! Goes to show that humans can adapt to anything. It currently has 1 coat of primer and 1 coat of paint. 1 more coat to go and then it can be hung in the bathroom and give us some much, much needed storage. My parents are coming to visit this weekend, and my Dad is wonderfully skilled at anything requiring tools or complicated angles. I'm hoping he can assist the mounting of this cabinet. Would be terrible to load it and have the whole thing come down taking bits of the wall with it.
So here are some pictures of some progress.


I think we are finally beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel of preparation. We haven't even had a plumber or electrician over yet, and it feels like we've been working at this for months!
