    Gotta love Craigslist!!

    I've been following this organization board forever. We're finally building our new garage and it's going to have a bonus room above it that will be my quilting studio. My "Garottage"! It's not even going to be started until this fall but I'm so excited (AND impatient!!). Anyway, I've been reading the threads about fabric storage, right now my stash is on comic book boards in clear totes sorted by color. When I have my room I wanted to get cabinets like "upper" kitchen cabinets. I'd read the thread about not wanting them too deep. I thought about bookshelves but I wanted doors - - Anyway, look what I scored on Craigslist! I can't wait to get them in my room and filled with my fabric! Name:  cabinets 3.jpg

    They're 8 feet high and combined 10 feet wide. About 12" deep. That's 80 square feet of storage for my stash!!! I can't wait!! Just HAD to share!
    Laughing is, and will always be, the best form of therapy!

    When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life!

    If you're too busy to laugh.....you're too busy!

    That is a major score! Congratulations. You will so enjoy opening all those doors and seeing rows of neatly folded materials just waiting to be chosen for your next project.

    I better start watching Craigslist. I'm going out next week to look at the insides of a couple properties. Both have one very large bedroom that will make great sewing rooms once cabinetry is installed.

    These are just beautiful. I can imagine what they will look like with various colors in those glass doors.
