Meanwhile, all the books, pictures, etc were transferred to the basement shelves (which have finally been installed). Nothing is permanent, because I now need to go through everything and get things better organized, displayed, etc. And the painting of the family room will resume this week, so we'll get to see the two new colors together, instead of the one new color (bookcase) and the one old color (beige).
