Painting Shelves

I tell you what. The best laid My daughters SO got sick so my 2 oldest grandsons came over and with a little help from my neighbor to get them started, got all the brackets for the shelves up. OK, so now what? My dear sweet neighbor came to my rescue once again and came over last Friday and started cutting the shelves for me. The weather got cold and windy so he couldn't finish, but he got enough done that I could actually start painting them. He came over again on Tuesday and finished cutting the rest. I am soooo happy. I have been painting like crazy for days now and what I have done so far looks GREAT!! It is taking me forever to paint them because I am doing them inside, actually in the craft room, and have to wait for each coat on each side to dry before I can do another. Nothing like waiting for paint to BUT, they are getting done, slow but sure. I am hoping to finish the last four today or tomorrow morning. Of course my craft room is a total disaster area right now. There are tools and paint stuff everywhere. I really need to spend some time in the rest of my house since I have practically lived out there the last few days, but it shouldn't take long to knock them out and then I can get it cleaned up. What to do, what to I am going to wait and post pictures after I finish and get the tools & paint stuff put away. Then comes the fun part. Going through all my stuff, bin by bin, cleaning, sorting, organizing and figuring out just where the heck I am going to put it Well, I have plenty of shelves, that's for sure!! OK, I give, here is a teaser picture I took the other day after I had a few shelves done. What do you think? Please leave me a comment and let me know.
