    This picture is taken at the lady's house where I bought these two wall units last week. It is now in my house.

    Alaska Sunshine, on this board, has been my hero ever since she posted her tutorial on organizing fabric. Now, I just need to go get the boards.

    I am ready for that room to look like someone loves it again.

    Wall Units just waiting for fabric to adorn its shelves. The middle section on the right is able to hold my thread. I put my serger in the lower unit with the doors.

    I've read many, many ads before I found this one. (I'm talking about years.) I could hardly believe that I finally found what I was looking for.

    What a great find! They look almost brand new. Will your fabric all fit into it?

    No, I'm afraid I have way too much stash to fit in there, but it is going to be a big help.

    I am so thankful to have a place where my thread and serger isn't getting dusty.

    Those will be great. I need to get busy and work on my sewing room too. Look forward to the post with pictures of all that pretty fabric and the rest of your sewing room.

    Very nice storage unit! Will you paint it or keep the natural wood tone?

    I hope one of these days.

    I'm very busy right now getting ready for our big quilt show October 8-10. We'll have more than 400 quilts on display.

    I will leave it like it is. I wasn't too concerned with its color; I just wanted some storage units.

    I have similar cabinets in old house that I use for china. Now I'm kind of hoping they won't look right in the house we're moving too!!
