When my tenant put her new Ikea Ektorp sofa with chaise in the Cottage it reminded me of just how much I still need to remove.
My goal for this weekend, if Hurricane Matthew doesn’t get in the way, is to remove our bed frame headboard and footboard which prevents the new sofa from being moved to the wall.
I also want to move the doors from the corner near the door so the new cabinet can be put in.
I’ve been successful in getting rid of some things on Craigslist like the last section of porch railing from our demolished porch.
Also gone is the screen door . A man’s wife sent him for it. I was selling it for $5; he bought it for $10.
The pile of scrap wood is gone – some to toy makers, some to the dumpster.
My draftsman lamp from college is gone.
I’m also planning to put my drafting table on Craigslist. It makes me sad because I always thought I would need it again because I would go back to designing. That seems unlikely.
Have you given up something you thought you’d always do?
