    I spent the most of the last 2 days reshelving my wall to wall closet in my soon to be sewing room.
    I emptied the whole closet about a week ago, then got sick. So I have had boxes, containers all over the house.

    Yesterday, I finished the 4 side shelves - that were made from old cabinet doors I cut down, anchored & trimmed

    I pulled the 9 cubby in from another room, and added the side shelf (which was a left over shelving unit -tower (12 x 72)

    The drawers and side cabinet I found on the side of the road, before garbage pick up. - the white shelves on top of drawers are part of the 2 shelf units I had in a back closet -

    When you are done putting all of your stash in your wonderful cubbies and on your shelves be sure to show us a picture.

    I like the way you shop. Not sure all of that stuff will fix in your sewing closet, though.

    Love your creativity in the shelving units, etc. Will be so nice to have those shelves filled, and stuff organized! :)

    Thank you- I'm glad you like whast I did with the closet- Now comes the hard part - Since organization is not one of my strong points - I feel like a square peg in a round hole... HOWEVER ...I am sick of rebuying items that I know I have but can't for the life of me find.

    Will update with photos as I fill the closet - but I am determined to look through everything before it goes into the closet. - This could take a while
