    Love your cabinets!

    One thing I found was that, if you line the drawers with that bumpy plastic shelf liner, the thread doesn't move around when you pull the drawers open.

    WOW! I think you hold the record for "longest" daylong road trip! Looks like it was worth it!

    I love Ikea! I recently bought something similar to yours and I couldn't believe how well it was made - and so easy to move around. Great choice!

    I have one of them out with my LA - I put my rulers and tools in it. Most of my spools for the LA are too tall to fit in the drawers, so I have a different Ikea cabinet for them.

    I have a second one in my sewing room, and since it is on wheels, I use it as a ironing station when I am doing paper peiceing and need to iron often. I can roll it next to my sewing table so I don't have to get up to iron. When not in use, I roll it under the end of my ironing board where it is out of the way, but still close enough to the sewing table for easy access.

    Our nearest Ikea is about 5 hours away (Twin Cities MN). We went a couple of weeks ago so I could get an adjustable table for my machine, and a couple of storage cabinets for the sewing room.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    That's a great size. I do have an Ikea near me. I might have to look into these. I currently have some 25 year old plastic drawers that I"m still using. They could probably move to under the cutting table and get rid of the boxes there. Hmmmmm . . . it sounds like a trip to Ikea is in my future!

    I use cabinets similar to these just not Ikea. I always feel like a grade-schooler opening a gigantic box of crayons and that makes me happy. Where did you get the dividers in the lower picture?
