    New Cabinets/Shelves for my Sewing Space

    I share a sewing space with a spare bedroom in our home...well, minus the bed! (It's still a work in progress) Until recently I had my fabric, patterns, etc. stored in big plastic bins against the wall, struggling to find things.

    A couple of weeks ago I purchased 2 bookshelves/cabinets on craigslist for $160 for both. I was able to completely empty 4 of them and still had space for my yarn, a spare sewing machine and several WIPs.

    A daybed is in my future for that room...

    Awesome! I am dreaming of the day I move and get to claim a spare bedroom like that for myself... Beautiful cabinets, and not a bad price!

    Lucky you. They are beautiful. It is so much easier to keep things organized when you have beautiful cabinets to store them in.

    Great find. I love having closed storage because it cuts down on the visual clutter.

    Super find and what a lovely way to store your things.
    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.

    I also have a BIG book case and use it for storage. Mine is very deep, they store so much stuff. But your's are prettier than mine is. LOL

    Those are beautiful and not TOO large. I've been looking for something for closed storage, too!

    Nice Score. I insist that my fabric stays much cleaner when it is behind closed doors. Not only that, it is easier to hide stuff, than to display it properly and keep it dusted. My two cabinets are just painted pressed board. Your cabinets are really classy!

    I recognize those cabinets - I have four of them spread out around my house - they are great. Someday, I might actually be able to use mine for quilting storage - you got a great deal!

    I think those are "Whittier" cabinets and you buy them unfinished and unassembled. My husband did all of ours for me. I think they might be made in Oregon, but not completely sure. I also think he bought them at Fred Meyer - I have had mine for ages!

    Thank you all for the positive reinforcement! SLK350, I have some built-in, very deep shelves in that room, too where I keep tons of things, but you know, one of the things I liked about these shelves was that they are only 16" deep...not a huge footprint in my room and I can see everything at a glance! Love all the comments!!!
