Freebeard, that diagram makes me sleepy!

I did not start working on the shelves until the night before I left, too many other things were going on, but I had bought the materials.

I decided that, instead of coming up with something with all of the features that I desired, I would go ahead and make something useful now, and come back and spend more time and money later. Perfect is the enemy of good?

I cut the shelves, but need to trim them, cut the 2x2 that I bought for brackets, and install everything. However, I realized that my parents' room was the most cluttered in the house. They have two dressers, one of which is very large, two unusable desks, a couple of full bookcases, and every surface is covered, with a pile in front of everything, and they actually have stuff blocking the walkway. I really think that instead of building more shelves, it would be best to find a good Packrat Anonymous group!

My folks were the same way. I walked through their place once and counted five vacuum cleaners.

Were they dusty?

As far as I know, they only have one, while I have two, which I do not use, because the house has one. I just vacuumed a little while ago and strangely, someone had replaced ours with an equally-old one, which worked worse. The one that we had looked just like the first one my mom gave me, except that it worked. The second one was brand-new.

If I can find the vacuum we had, I would put "fix vacuum" on my to-do list. I can still take it apart, but where is the thrill of making pieces of something that works properly, without having any idea if it still will afterward?

I cut the wood and then everything changed, although I may install them in my bedroom at home.

Good hardwood is expensive!
