Remember this story about storage under the stage? Paul hadn't finished it yet when I posted it, so here's how it turned out:
The rounded part of the stage is an addition to the original, so the floorboards never matched to begin with.
Using a good friend's suggestion and an old piano hinge, Paul turned what had originally been a plan based on pull-out drawers and made something fabulous and immediately vulnerable to stashing.
Someday we'll get more serious about organizing it, but for now it works great. Especially when we can keep the cats out of it.
