I knew it would be perfect for my workroom, although I didn't know exactly what I'd use it for when I grabbed it. Super cute, with 5 drawers and a totally awesome countrified stencil on the top.
This one I remembered to sand before I started in on it because that stencil had to go. My go-to color of white paint spiffed it up and gave it a fresh look. I was going to paint the drawers and get new knobs for it, but one of the drawers was a little moldy inside, so the 5 drawers went back to the dump the next week and the drawer cabinet became a shelf cabinet perfect for holding fabric. And happily, it fits perfectly in a small space.
Each shelf has fabric for a different project. Quilt fabrics:

On another note, thank you for all the enthusiastic responses to the quilted mat I posted yesterday! It actually gave me an idea. Several people have expressed an interest in learning how to use their sewing machine or learn how to sew, both in comments made and in posts I've read as I've been hopping from blog to blog. Would anyone be interested in a few posts on using the sewing machine, for beginners? I'm not some super expert, but I do know how to use one and I'd be happy to share. Maybe we could even work on a little project together. Let me know! And don't worry, I don't have some fancy-schmancy machine. I have this one from Walmart and I love it.
