Branching off of the upstairs landing, there's a small hallway with built in shelving:
A month ago, those shelves were overflowing with cluttered books & random junk. I've been on a "Goodwill NEEDS this thing!" spree. I'd say it's going pretty darn well. Eventually, I want to decorate the shelving with pretty things & hide not so pretty things in snazzy little baskets or bins. For now, though, I am taking advantage of some free hand-me-down curtains that just so happened to match the hallway walls (and, strangely, my blog):
I was on my way to paint Joseph's big boy room when I had a sudden whim to hang those curtains without delay. Fifteen minutes later, I had a completely different hall. Nevermind the fact that I didn't have any curtain rods on hand...
That's what 1x2s are for.
