It required an entire shuffle of paintings throughout the house. We decided to use our long hall wall as an art gallery/storage for paintings. It will be kinder to the paintings than storing them on the floor in the basement or in a cardboard box.

  5. Are You Making Your Life More Complicated (And Expensive) Than It Needs To Be?
