I have a separate double garage /work shop that measures 26 x 38 that I can get my full size pickup truck in 1 bay. The other bay and the shop that's partitioned is a cluttered mess where one turns side ways to get from here to there. Nothing can be discarded because I may need that some day, (some may know the feeling?) So in an attempt to clean and organize it is to move one clutter to another clutter location. I give up. Some day there may be spontaneous combustion.

Kitchen base cabinets and counter top.

My mother bought cabinets with full overlay doors and the counter top has an overhang that sits on top of the drawers.

The project that is diving me buggy is reconfiguring and reorganizing the shop as I try to downsize.

jbfan, if you put spacers under the counter top it will raise it up enough that the front edge won't rest on the drawers. Just a thought.

Was called in to fix a job another painter started. And did just about everything wrong. Everyplace he patched is a hump and flashed thru his lovely Olympic paint. Even on the walls with the zebra stripes and the one with the leopard spots.

It's not the current project but the current PROJECTS that my wife has me doing right now lol. For example new laminate on main floor, trim on main floor, full basement gut and redo, new tub and surround and then my project of changing my oil furnace over to natural gas.... So much to do and so little time when working at the paying job for 50 hours a week and a new 7 month old baby. Oi
