Happiness is a CLEAN game room!

Yes I did it.
I went yesterday to the Salvation Army store and spent 20 bucks on a nice bookshelf, and brought it back and put in in the game room this morning. Then I got to cleaning the mess up.One of my main problems is that I work on multiple projects "at once", and things get piled up, shuffled around and the place looks like a dump. It's one of the problems with mini wargaming. Your projects tend to take on a life of their own, and you accumulate "stuff"...
So I had to clean it, and with the new bookshelf, cleaning it was my project for the day.
So now I have it cleaned, and organized!
Take a look and see!


My painting/work table after the cleaning! (Egad look at the ROOM!)
And yet another shot of the painting/work area, showing the paint holder, work table area and tools table area. It amazes me how much room I actually have when it's clean...and yes...that IS the Bongolesian Flag on the wall...
For those that say that "Bongolesia doesn't exist"...Take THAT Wikipedia!!!!
The dresser for figs along with storage containers for terrain, parts, plastic, etc...all in all a LOT of stuff in these drawers for scratchbuilding.
A close up of the "Drawers of Stuff"...
Yes, a "Drawer full of lead"...15mm vehicles by QRF, 15mm Battle Honors Figs, Steve Jackson Ogrethulhus, SST Female Cap Troopers, Pulp Figures (In the box on the right), Some Bolt Action Minis, and some of the 28mm Pirates that I have, among others...
My new bookshelf and my closet of stuff. Terrain, scenery, vehicles, rules, and parts and stuff...Gods this hobby is horrible...
The ever lovely Ms. Linda Blair, whose graciously autographed photo adorns my wall, and tells me that "wargamers turn her on"...riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight...dream on sucker...

Of course, keeping the room safe and sound, and inspiring us all, is the ever present and gracious gentleman; Mr. Adam West outfitted as The Caped Crusader...

YAYYYY Clean wargame room! Cleaning up mine a bot this weekend as well, I like you run multiple projects at a time. It gets messy.

Madness, sir, madness. A clean game room is a sign of a cluttered mind.

Spread some random litter from your bits box on the floor, quick!
