    New storage under cutting table

    I had a makeshift cutting table - a hollow core door that we got from Menards and my dh had made saw horses so that it was the right height for me. I found some storage cubbies at Target and put them all together this weekend and then started organizing fabric. I still have lots to put on the comic book boards.

    One side has bins for sorting my scraps as I cut and my quilting cotton. The other side has my flannels and book and magazine storage. Still have to pull all of the books and magazines from all of the places they are stashed in the house.

    Still a lot more to do in the room, but I am really happy with progress. Painting and storage were big items for me.

          Lisa, that looks great! Is that just one door on top if two cubbys?

            It is a hollow core door and it is on 3 of the 9 cubby units and 1 6 cubby unit - the way the wall is on the flannel side, I couldn't do 2 of the 9 cubbies. If you look for a door - check the scratch and dent aisle at the store - they all have them. We got this door for $5.

              Looks great, lots of storage. Your walls are the color that my bedroom was when I was in high school. I think I shocked my parents back then when I picked that color. I was so sick of off-white.

                  That looks so nice & organized!! You've inspired me to tackle the storage in my sewing room closet. I think I'm going to wrap my fabric on those mini bolts too, so much easier to see what I have.
                  Where do you get the comic book boards?
