    Organizing and getting ideas for more space!!!!!

    Hi All

    I just wanted to share a site I recently found and a lot of information on making things from old things and what u might have around the house. So much to see and make.....for all of you wanting more space in your craft and quilt rooms and how to make that space from what u might have around the house! This gave me the idea to put on here after viewing the waterbed chest made by "thequilteddove", check this out for sure......she gave me the idea to use my bed and all for this and so glad I kept it and took it off Craigslist too.......thanks....so go check this out for ideas ok....this is a nice cabinet for anything......just search for what u might b interested in is all and there it is, all kinds of storage for our quilting needs and free if u have it and just a little work on your part.....free is good right and it is being used instead of just sitting in the shed or cellar....enjoy all

    Thanks! I love looking at things others create out of not much of nothing! I only wish I had that kind of creativity!

    The Transformation

    THANK YOU for Showing Me this site!! I've Put it in MY Bookmarks.
    And Now want to Show you All what I've been Doing this last 1.1/2 months. Work !!
    I've redone My Kitchen, when I See the one On the Site Its So Much Like Mine WAS!
    I'm making a Hutch from an old dresser, Its still in the works, this Hutch could be used For fabrics Too!( in the future.)
    It will have 3 shelves in the top with glass doors, in the bottom below the drawer, 2 solid doors.
    On the very Top/Crown will Be a Trim To match the one like in the Corner of My kitchen Cabinet/Over Sink.
    This will be Painted White.
    PS: Now That I have Seen What they Did with Old Drawer on the Site! I'm Saving the 3 Other Drawers Too. I'm Having SO much Fun!

    Just had a thought, the bottom is so pretty of the dresser u r using right, so why not take a template of that and put that on the top of the bookcase u r making like in the kitchen at the top, idea is all, what u think????

    I Did Think of ALL those Ways!! Hunted ALL over My area! Far/Wide/under every Rock! No Luck! I Just Couldn't Find A Thing! SO frustrating Because I know I've Seen Just What I wanted Before
    So this is How I did it this time! This is far from the 1st time I've done a thing like this!
    I Love to Quilt But This is MY Dare I say FAV thing to DO! Brings back My Memories of DAD Childhood working with Him from Very little, only his 'Hip high' He always had to 'Make DO' showed Me tricks of how to do this or that. Have to Stop or I'll cry!
    May Your Life Be Full of Charity and Love.
