    I have the Ikea cabinets and love them. I have two tall units with 3 stationary selfs and three pull out drawers in each. I have the frosted glass doors on each Cabinet and there is two doors on each. In the middle of these two cabinets I have a thinner cabinet (just as tall as other two) and I chose the mirror door. Inside that cabinet there are 8 pull our baskets and each is removable easy if you want to look for something specific. i have elastic, thread, velcro, lace, zippers, bias tape, trims, tools, patterns, and more in the baskets. These units are on one wall in my sewing room. I just love them. Before I had all these bins and It took me longer to find what I wanted then it did to cut the project out. They will help you at Ikea if you think you know what you want.Name:  IMG_2636.jpg

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    Hi sewingsuz,
    Thank you so much for posting these pictures and sending me the PM to let me know you had. I love your storage cabinets. Those baskets are really great. Now I want some of those too! We live near the water so I don't know if they'll be okay with salt air but I'll find out.
    Thanks again...this is getting exciting,
    lots2do

    My sewing room has also turned out to be from IKEA - not by design but because they had the things I needed. When the folding table I was using became warped from the heat and weight of my embroidery machine we found this desk at IKEA. The extension table is working out well and it does slide under the desk when not in use. It is sturdy enough to hold a standard machine or serger. The storage units in the second picture we found at IKEA also and despite my initial reservations they have worked out well for me.

    The one thing to keep in mind about the PAX wardrobe is that it is very deep (23+ inches). This does not work well if you want to stand your fabric on end like books because of the depth of the cabinet. I bought this and the Stuva storage combination and drawers. I ruler fold my fabric about 1 inch shorter than the depth of the cabinet and then stack them. Makes it a littler harder to get one out but I can still see all by fabric.

    The plus side of the depth is that you can put bins with projects in the cabinets - and the ability to set it up like you want. In the PAX I have 3 wire baskets at the bottom and 5 shelves above. The Stuva has 2 deep drawers at the bottom and 4 shelves above.

    Thanks, lakekids, for your comments and advice. I am planning on using bins to organize by fabric color or type for the most part.

    how deep are they? I've looked at the Ikea billy stuff but it isn't very deep. I'm looking for something to put finished quilts in. Glass front They are so pretty stacked up.
    Mine get rotated because I use them on my bed and change them out each month.

    I've been debating this http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/pr...277/#/70240332

    and this http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00180548/

    For either display or just more fabric.

    I wouldn't store fabric or quilts in glass fronted cabinets. I can't tell you the amount of fabric I've been given or purchased through estate sales that has bleaching or fading around the folds of the fabric from being stored in areas that get light. The best place for quilts and fabric storage is in cabinets that do NOT let light through.
