Pioneer Day Projects
Thanks to the Mormons, today is Pioneer Day and I had it off from work. I started in after a hearty breakfast of french toast, taking Sam's disassembled semi-broken desk and turning it into a smaller work bench for Ben. The general idea is that Ben can move the sewing machine and glue gun down to the basement area, freeing up the kitchen table which is generally covered in knick knacks.
We have an old Amish-made bit of furniture for an old school TV, which has been fairly useless if really pretty. I whipped up some shelves and moved in the remaining games, which frees up space on the wire shelves for other things.
Finally, I bravely cut a hole in the basement linoleum floor over one of the bumps. Sure enough, there's a layer of thin particle board that warped when water ran in from the washing machine drain. I'll have to think about next steps - a simple patch might due for now, though long-term ripping up the floor is likely the ideal solution.
