Our back room is currently the project room. Eventually it will be a nice room for working, and it will double as a guest room. Before then, however, it needs a good coat of paint, a new floor, and some other work. Our first task has been rebuilding the big ugly closet into a big, less ugly, closet. See our progress in home improvement!
I have become one with my masonry bit (while my credit card has become one with Home Depot). Those shelves are mounted on brackets attached to a solid concrete wall. Eight holes in tough conrete -- I nearly gave myself a hernia drilling those suckers.
