Hi! The craft room is not quite done yet, but I couldn't help myself... I've started moving stuff in there. I'm just too stinkin' excited!
Today I'm going to show you how I decided to store all of my fabric. I am a fabric hoarder. I know it and I don't care. So having a really functional way to store all of it is important to me.
A few years ago, I bought this solid wood armoire at a yard sale for $5:
Gosh, I still get giddy thinking about it. That was one heck of a deal!
I gave it a makeover and it held our old school boxy TV for several years:
That TV died and we finally came around to this decade and got a flat screen. I created a media console for the flat screen from junk I found in the garage and was left with a gorgeous, empty armoire to use somewhere else.
So of course I wanted to put it in my craft room:
Look at this, friends:
Doesn't it just fill your heart up with joy to see all of that fabric stacked so neatly and divided by color?!
All I did to change this armoire's purpose was add a second shelf inside and paint the insides of the doors with chalkboard paint.
The shelves are for large pieces of fabric, 1 yard + and the drawers hold all of my scraps and smaller fabric pieces:
Gah! I am over the moon!!
I love you, fabric storage armoire!! So hard!
