First, I replaced the table with this set of shelves. One of the plastic drawer units was used in the mail/ship station, but you can still see the other one in the photo below.
This is what I got accomplished. I'm very pleased with the result. Had some lunch, and now it's off to reward myself with some sewing for a few hours. Once the sun is off the patio, I have some backyard stuff to do. I could use another day off work!
I also managed to empty all the totebags on the floor in the second picture.
Here's a final photo of the big open space I managed to create this weekend. Yay!
