|the 4 utility shelves arranged along the 12 foot wall. |
my computer desk is in the opposite wall at the end.
The week after we moved into the new house, Home Depot was having a sale on black plastic utility shelving. $27 per unit. I grabbed 4. they are 18" deep and 36"(3') long. they fit perfectly on one wall, as the wall is 12' long. nearly all my miniatures, terrain, and supplies fit on them. On the opposite wall there is an alcove that is 6' wide, and 32" deep.

I picked up 2 Detolf display cabinets a few weeks ago form Ikea. I was back down in that area last week, so I picked up a pair of Dioder lighting kits. This past weekend I was in Canadian Tire and they had a bookshelf on sale that perfectly fit the space I had left over. My books finally have a home!
so with that my little room is complete. I bought 4 folding 6' x 2.5' tables, which i can set up in the main basement area(rec room) for games. My only problem at the moment is that i don't have a gaming mat big enough to cover all the tables. So now i have to come up with a plane for a 5'x12' gaming mat! Always a major project in the works!
I have done some painting in the last month. I painted up a unit of 8 foundry continental Infantry for the forthcoming AWI project, using Muskets and Tomahawks.
