    Repurposing mobile file cart

    As usual, the sewing room is a work in progress. I no longer needed this mobile hanging file cart for my home office so after brainstorming, I thought it would be a great way to store bolts of fabric and bolts of Pellon. My husband cut a piece of laminate for the top.

    It's just the right size for the bolts. Glad you could repurpose it.

    This is the original purpose. You can hang file folders on this for your patterns, etc.

    Thanks everyone! I have been quite pleased with this brainstorm. No more crawling on my knees to get to my bolts of stabilizers and fusibles that i was storing under the bed.

    I love re-purposing, most of my house is furnished in re-purpose pieces, mainly because I love the challenge. I just recently picked up a old galvanized feed bucket for free, its getting spray painted yellow to use as a trash can in my sewing rm. You were very smart to come up with something so useful. Thanks for sharing.

    Great idea. Just the right size too.
