I have had plans for awhile about turning our back room into a storage room, and have finally done it. It is a nice little room, but really isn't suitable for anything except storage. We tried it as an office and as a bedroom... As a spare bedroom, it was insanely tiny, as we only have queen size beds. As an office... Well, honestly, no one in their right mind wants to spend any time in there because in the summer and winter, it is usually about 15-20 degrees warmer/colder than the rest of the house.
We were using the only closet (unfinished and dirty and ugly) on the first floor as an everything room. Cat litter, recycling, storage... You name it, it was in there. Seriously, everything. I got my shelving set up, moved everything out, cleaned up, and replaced only the cat litter boxes and litter, cat food, and recycling. If we didn't have a dog who considered "anything cat" a delicacy, we would have moved those out too. Hubby intends on finishing that room at some point this year, which will entail insulation, drywall, and flooring.
But, I know you are dieing for pictures, so I will stop rambling and present to you.... My New Storage Closet!!!! Can I just say that I am sooooo happy I finally have a home for the vacuum cleaner?! I am sure my guests (once in a blue moon, but guests nevertheless) will enjoy NOT sleeping in a room that contains my extra storage bins, vacuum cleaner, and boxes of junk.
