Here it is now, from practically the same view, with practically the exact same items stored in it:
I think I might put some type of screen in front of the ugly hot water heater, and buy a new 24" stool to use instead of that chair, but otherwise, I love it!
This is the opposite view, with the four big slide-out bins that we got for sorting and storing recycling items. We have a big recycling deposit center about 200 yards from our house, next to the local high school, so we really have no excuse not to be good recyclers!
The whole room is about 7 feet by 13 feet, but now it holds about 2 or 3 times the stuff in a much neater way. I'm very pleased with how it turned out!
