Last weekend, Scott switched out the bare-bulb light ceiling light fixtures in the 1972 basement (aka my craft area) for some small, stainless steel 3-lamp fixtures. This added much needed light, and made the room look less basement-y and more room-y.
Removing the bare-bulb socket . . .
The new fixture!
My "craft area" is nearly complete; I was lucky enough to procure a rug from our friend Megan. It's bright colors really give the room definition, and it's so cozy now.
I put an old fuzzy blanket on top of my big Ikea tub, hoping it would attract a kitty in need of a nap. The trap worked! Leo is quite comfy.
In the meantime, Scott continued moving all of his hardware and tools into the 2012 basement. He's done a great job of organizing but still has a lot of clean-up to do.
Scott moved an old storage unit and another bookshelf into position on the little ledge near the bottom of the 2012 staircase. This is a perfect place for tool organization!
