We are in the process of trying to clean out our garage so we can move all of our tools up from the basement. After we get the garage cleaned out and the tools moved, we need to clean out our basement and that my friend is no small task. Joe is finishing a couple of rooms down there so we can have a downstairs family room and an office. The other half of the basement we will keep unfinished to give me an area to paint and store projects. I'm really so excited!! I won't have to worry when I drip paint on the floor. To get ready for all this work I have been trying to go thru everything and decide what we should keep and what is alright to get rid of. I came across these wooden slats that were once a shoe rack. It was kind of a cheap one and would never stay together, but I've had the pieces for about 5 years. I was going to stick them in the garbage when I had an idea that they might look cute as inside shutters. I painted them white and stuck them up in the front room. What do you think? Should they stay or should they go?
