A Beautiful Mind ...

... or One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?  

Next is the rest of my Utility Room organization.  This is the first house I've ever had with a basement-type room.  There is a long narrow space that is to the right as you walk into the Utility Room.  Along the left side of the space I have organized fabric for decoration projects, baby equipment and clothes, seasonal decorations and lots of other miscellaneous stuff.

A lot of plastic containers - 

Along the right side of the space are my inspiration boards for my interior design plans.  I see lots of photos posted on blogs of lovely inspiration boards. 

Here are 2 from from -

Mine?  Not quite so glamorous, but very functional - 

Now for the rest of the Utility Room.  Remodeling supplies -

These cabinets were left in the room over the garage.  I had them moved down here, bought a laminate top from Menards which I had installed and now I have a nice place for craft storage.  The work table is one we've had for many years. 

I really need a chair -

Here is the bonus.  The Utility Room is where we'd go if there was a tornado since most of the walls are concrete in there.  Won't it be nice for me to be able to look at design books, think about my plans, do a little sewing or crafting while Mike cleans his guns and Logan plays with her toys on the cool little Ikea rug I have down while there is a tornado happening?  Talk about a multi-functioning space!

Back to my original question.  A Beautiful Mind or One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?
