Basement beautification

This scary photo is in my basement, behind the stairs. Fans, infant stuff, and bags are all piled up here and are quite unsightly. I had a under-used bookcase in another corner of the basement, and a length of fabric whose previous life was as a curtain at my old house. I decided to pull them all together for a little improvement.

BEFORE:
People rave about the little furniture tacks, but I bent 2 really quick and banged my thumb up.
I decided to use nail brad instead, simply because that was the first sturdy looking nail I came across on the workbench. I nailed that fabric up from some metal beam. I'm surprised it stayed, to tell you the truth.See how the bookcase fits under the stairs? I haven't decided what to put on this new shelf. Stuff that needs to be hidden away. I have an obsession with organizational units. I'm sure it all started with my need for maximizing space in our old house. But I can't seem to get over it. I have 4 other bookcases, a huge armoire, and a 4 drawer file cabinet also in the basement in my "sewing area". Obviously, I"m addicted to shelving units. Total overload.

AFTER:
Sigh....Pretty fabric makes everything better. Even if it's in the basement and nailed up to a ceiling beam!
