    How are you going to measure and cut? Love this idea but not the thought of taking off and on. Hope you have a secret!

    Brilliant! I especially love the way you hung the batting!!! I need to do something like that, instead of just cramming it onto the top of my shelving.

    Shouldn't be too hard to pull the amount of batting you need. Just keep a tape measure handy right at the dowel with a yard stick and cut straight across. Super idea.

    Sweeee-eeeet! If you clamp a piece of wood across the whole front of the shelf just below the shelf above the batt, it will kind of be like a big foil or waxed paper box. You can roll the edge of the batt up over the wood and through the space to hang down a little. Tape a tape measure to the one side of the shelving unit down to the floor. You can them pull down how much you need by the tape measure and trim it off up at the wood for a nice straight edge.

    The roll isn't that much taller than the bed in our guest room. I plan to roll it off onto the bed, then cut.

    Great idea! I've been looking for a way to store the bolt of batting I recently bought. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you all for your comments. I hope this might work for some of you. I've gotten lots of really good tips off this board and I wanted to share mine. That's what we're here for, isn't it? To help each other.
