A few weeks ago a colleague asked me if I was interested in buying some storage cabinets as they were cleaning out a house of a family member, a lady who had made jewelry with beads. I was so thankful that my colleague thought of asking me. I was able to buy these two cabinets…. lots and lots of drawers.
Aren’t they wonderful?
I think these are both by IKEA, from at least 10 years ago. The lady who owned them before me must have been very neat and tidy, as these cabinets were in perfect order!!!
I only had to remove some stickers but that was very easy with a hairdryer and a chemical sticker remover. Done in 5 minutes!
Look how my spools of thread fit perfectly in the drawers?! I added some pieces of paint stirring sticks from the DIY store to separate the rows.
Even the 1000 meter spools fit in the drawers! There is some Aurifil Polyester, Aurifil Cotton, Wonderful Metallics, Madeira Polyneon Polyester, Gutermann and Amann in there.
This month 5 windows were replaced in my apartment. They exchanged the 1980’s “tilting / pivoting” windows for regular window which are much handier and feel safer. I had to remove everything in front of the windows, so I had to dismantle my sewing room completely. My large table was tilted on its side and the lights are suspended up high so nobody would hit their head.
See? Everything pushed to the side….
I couldn’t use my room for over almost a week.
When the work on the windows was done, I pushed the tall cabinet all the way to the front of the room where I could access the threads without getting up.
I am very happy with my new cabinets. They even allow me a better access to the left of the table as the cabinets are not as deep as the other furniture in there. So much better for my posture! I hope to reduce my shoulder pains a bit with this new lay-out of the room.
I really enjoy my room now!
