I sort of transitioned from video games to board games about 3 years ago. Trimmed video games to 1,000-ish titles (600 of which are gamecube) and board games went from around 75 to over 450 now. So...I didn't save any room. I have 2 other similarly sized shelves. It's good and bad, just like it was with video games. Spoiled for choice. The family, particularly my girls are content with half a dozen video games but they like the wide selection of board games.Damn, that's a pretty big collection. I'm in a similar situation where I need to tetris everything to fit in my external shelving.
Refinishing the kitchen cabinets and replacing some worn out parts. Total cost is around $200 for paint, sealant, rollers, brushes, hardware and wood to make some new shelves. The main "expense" is the time involved since there's a total of 30 cabinets and drawers. Everything has to be cleaned and sanded, then 3 coats of paint (Behr Dynasty semi-gloss white), 2 coats of sealant (MinWax Polycrylic).
Also recaulked everything, new tile grout, switches and outlets. I already did the bathrooms and laundry room so I've gotten quite good at it. The inspiration was my wife constantly asking me to do it and the purpose is to have a nice modern looking kitchen. I'm doing it in chunks and it'll probably take a couple months.
549 of 555 US releases, 29 JPN exclusives, and 1 of the random combo packs / rarities.How is that even possible?
Looks awesome, Wyo. Cabinets are tedious but well worth the effort. I’m doing a laundry room makeover. Pics to comeMore progress. Just a couple more section to go now.
@mjmjr25 yeah the cost for a complete renovation is very expensive now, even for DIY. I bought some laminated panels to make some new shelves, which added $100 to the budget
@blakeb8111 nice work! Digging the color scheme as well.
