These are the main shelving units that my husband made for me when I moved into The Stitchery. They are made from 3/4″ baltic birch and are 17″ deep by 30″ wide by 77 inches tall. Because they are made of a solid wood they handle packing in the fabric and support heavy weight suitings, coatings and wools
the second of three units:
As I was reorganizing I realized that many delicate fabrics were getting lost, shoved to the back of the shelves and were being overlooked in the planning stages of my sewing.
Georgettes, chiffons, anything slinky or slippery, knits or wovens are stored much better in small cubicles. Off I went to Lowes where I found the perfect solution:
ClosetMaid Shoe Storage Units! Prefinished, ready to assemble and stackable. Mwahahahahaha!
First I had to span over the floor register so this worked the “horizontal organizer”
and I stacked this on top: “15 shoe organizer”
I still had space under the window so next to this unit I put the “25 shoe organizer”
And on top of the 25 shoe unit I had room to go up to the ceiling with two of these stackable shelves
The beauty of these pieces are that they are only 11.5″ deep and everything is visible
So with an investment of approximately $150 I was able to fill previously unused space and didn’t have to wait for my very busy husband to have time to build them for me. I think this was a bargain and the perfect solution for storing slippery, gauzy, lightweight fabrics.
Very cool! And husband was pleased he didn’t have to do anything 🙂
OK, back to work…
sewing hugs to all!
