Cleaning up the rest of the house meant consolidating some of our excess junk into the basement. There’s plenty of space down there, but I’m cautious of storing more than we need. Until we find the time to sort through this stuff, we’ve stacked it on either side of the stairs. This space is completely unused otherwise, but it was still a bit unsightly for the time being.
While cleaning I found a couple gigantic posters from when I worked at a movie theater in college. I hung them on either side for the staircase, in front of the piles of stuff we brought down from upstairs. The posters are actually taller than the basement is deep, but for now they are sufficiently hiding our random, unsorted junk.
