    IKEA/Varde Counter Storage Unit

    I have coveted the Varde Counter Storage Unit from IKEA since someone, possibly here, posted pictures of one in their quilting room.

    If you have this unit, can you tell me the inside dimensions of the drawers? I've looked @ IKEA's website, but they only provide overall dimensions of the unit. Currently, I am trying to make some decisions on furniture for the area in our family room where I sew - and part of my decision will be made on what I can actually store in this unit.

    Thank you for any assistance you can give!

    Peace and Joy,
    Robin

    Did you try sending them email to ask. Or go to the thread with the picture and maybe ask if she'll measure for you.

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Don't know if this is the unit you're talking about but this is the one I have. I absolutely love it. The drawers are 13" wide, 20 1/4" long and 3 3/4" deep.

    KSdot: I had a serious moment of quilting room envy when I saw your pic. The table looks very comfy for cutting and I love (LOVE!!) how you have organized your kits and rulers. Even given them labels, too cute LOL!

    What a cozy and productive space your room must be. Wish I lived in Kansas!

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."

    I am not only jealous of the storage unit, but absolutely lime green with envy over your available space! What I wouldn't give to be able to spread out a bit.
