The upcoming Monday will be the start of the actual MOVING part
of the… move so I wanted to give an update before that!
Most of my home is in boxes by now, the computer is obviously still
up and with sound and PS4 as well, also cleaning/building tools and half
the kitchen are left, things you need all the way until the end!
Since last time most of my time has actually gone into rebuilding some of the
shelves and selling duplicates and unwanted items.
A poor Xeno shelf turned into a tool shelf! Four of them needed to get shorter
in height and two… less wide, it took some work but I’m glad it’s done now.
Having to shrink the shelves is probably the worst part about the
move for me, hopefully I will be able to display most of the items as
before and hopefully it won’t look too bad.
While I had the chance I also made sure to do something I should have done a
long time ago, reinforce the larger/deeper shelves, they were never meant
to hold much weight but they almost bend under their own weight so I’m
happy to get this done at least.
There is one final and massive thing left, repaint ALL the shelves…
I really don’t look forward to that but as you might see in the picture it
is quite needed. It will be done during my time in the temporary apartment,
it does have a large and glassed-in balcony where I can paint.
I’m not too good with brushes so it will be a real challenge to reach
the corners on all these without messing up the back part.
Next up the sales, they have taken a lot of my time but it has been worth it,
thanks to all of you who have bought from me lately, the entire move should
be covered financially!!
That includes boxes, bubble wrap, tools, new upcoming shelves, paint etc.
There is just a lot of expenses so many, many thanks to you all!
Actually I even felt I could afford another really boring thing, protector boxes
for SFC games and a few other protectors I was running low or out of.
SFC was the highest priority since I have been getting so many of the
“strategy games” this year including a large lot a few weeks ago:
Just what I needed in the middle of the move, more things to clean and
repackage, haha. Oh well, they look nice now and will look even better
with protection and later in the shelves.
Wish me luck, next post will be from the temporary apartment!
