A Home for a Cubicle Collection, continued

This is what things looked like every morning when I came to work:

Decades of toys and collections of goodies.

As my new position no longer requires office space, we needed to find a display area for these treasures. The third floor beckoned.

All that was needed was caulking the walls, paint, and the creation of 10 shelves and presto! Instant display area! [nearly all the work was done by Nancy on a tall ladder – can’t do it without her]

Plus, room to hang my favorite creation that’s been in storage so long.

Further work on the 3rd floor is up next, along with improving conditions in the basement.

I’m really not missing going into work!

Easter Sunday, 2017

Nancy woke me to go up to watch sunrise. This is how far we’ve gotten on this project.

Brainstorming ensued, and we started moving things around, adding, etc. to see what would fit where. Below, see a panorama of the result. Still a work in progress, but we’re moving forward!

Updated, 5/1/17

There was a calendar of Walt Disney World attraction posters that I’d held on to, and after digging through our lumber in the basement there was nearly enough stuff to make frames for all 12. This is how they ended up.

With Nancy’s help, we installed them up on the third floor.

Lots of color!

I think I’m done with the west end of the area. Next up, the east end: plaster, paint, shelving. Stay tuned!
