31 Days: The Game Cabinet
Welcome back to another day of I’m A Shitty Housekeeper. I’m your host, Zakary.
This is the cabinet that sits in our front room and we call it the Game Cabinet. It’s pretty much the first thing you see when you walk in to our home. From the outside, its not too bad, just some mail, a gift bag, and the game Perfection piled on top.
Up until Christmas, it looked like this. Jeff and Zoe vetoed the squirrel fabric (BOO), so I used the lovely fabric you see above that I purchased at Joann’s for like $2 a yard. I cut poster board the size of the door panels and used spray adhesive to attach the fabric to the poster board. I then used my favorite friends, the Command Strips, and attached the fabric panels to the front of the doors.
And now we just use it to pile crap inside.
The inside, it burns.
The top shelf contains a external hard drive, a tape gun, our camcorder, eight dominoes, paint, UNO, and vintage milk glass globes, you know, typical game cabinet stuff (for hoarders).
I cleaned out the top drawers, filed the coupons, threw out the junk mail and the three non-working lighters, and left the important stuff like the Scentsy.
I went through the games and made sure all the parts and pieces were there and put everything else (like our camcorder) in its permanent home. I should probably relocate the milk glass globes, but they’ve been in there a year and have been safe so far.
I am holding onto them because I think I can repurpose the smaller one into a fixture for above my sink, which makes me LOL because dammit if it didn’t take me ten months just to clean the damn cabinet.
For 31 days, I’m tackling the Hot Mess. Read all about it here.
