Leia is one mean organizer!
But I was ready and surprisingly, the junk pile became smaller and smaller.
We have an "L" shaped galley kitchen starting with this ten-foot pantry hall.
Horror Monster had strayed way, way beyond his boundaries.
There are pantry cabinets across from this area filled with paint and tools.
The main kitchen leads down to an attached breakfast room.
Horror Monster had totally overtaken this space except for the spots for Scout's and Willie's dog beds.
This was the back corner.
Shelf supports held shelves for a collection of tins.
That was the kitchen table under the left junk.
The primitive Hoosier was packed with craft supplies.
The other side of the breakfast room held a pie safe filled with dishes.
The oak dresser is used as a microwave stand for my 1980 microwave.
Fans of my fudge forbid me to get rid of the behemoth. It makes wonderful candy.
And it held quite a variety of craft paints.
During the day, Leia and I would pack box loads of stuff for donation and for the booth.
All of the boxes were dragged to the den where we worked late into the night tagging and packing.
On the last day Leia was quite pleased with the progress.
In all, we hauled out FOUR truckloads of stuff.
And customers are loving it.
Gone are a box of rubber stamps, most of my tins, all the Brown Bag cookie molds, bags of craft supplies, and piles of vintage kitchenware.
The breakfast room now - devoid of Horror Monster.
Some projects waiting to be completed.
Basically this room is ready for a new floor.
I am keeping the knotty pine paneling.
Chucks and I actually are the only two people on the planet who love the pine.
And Horror Monster?
Well, most of him resides in the primitive Hoosier cabinet.
A mere shadow of himself.
All the kitchen and dining room furniture is in the living room.
I still have to finish clearing all the cabinets and setting up places for the refrigerator and microwave in the dining room.
Of course I will remove all the cabinet doors and drawers to sell.
Reusing the handles - they are vintage.
I promise to keep you up to date with the changes.
Chucks, Azalee, Miss Peepers, Willie, Scout and I plan to stay in this house during the renovation.
Unless we turn on each other.
Or go insane.
And this is NOT an April Fool's joke. I really did get rid of Horror Monster!
