Today, I'm finally sharing the storage closets. There'a quite a few pictures so hang in there.
By the time we got the garage turned into our new living/dining room, we were worn out. We still had all the Christmas boxes and some other things piled along the long wall where we intended to build cabinets or closets.

How perfect! And you can get them 1/2
off every other week!
