a home for the stash


Thanks to my darling husband, I now have a lovely home for all of my sewing "stuff". After a few tries I decided that taking apart and painting this thing was not one of the gifts God had given me. I figured I would have to do it in shifts and it would likely take a great long time and alot of words my children don't know yet. I took the kiddos to a movie on Monday and when I returned it was nearly finished! I was sooooo excited! And look how awesome it turned out! After a day to cure my fabric settled into its new home. You have to understand, all of my fabric and notions have always laid in boxes and baskets on the dining room floor. You know, maybe that's why the darling husband finished it so quickly. Hmmmmmmm. I don't really care why, I'm just so thrilled it is done! Best $20 garage sale find ever!

That turned out great, especially like the pulls. Maybe some day when I start doing woodworking for a living Will can do all the finishing for me during his off weeks.

How nice to have one place for everything! I'm jealous. I still have the piles on the floor...

It looks wonderful! Isn't always fantastic when you pick things up cheaply and do them up and they turn out just the way you want them to! Enjoy admiring your fabric stash!
