It was meant to be: Thrifting Thursdays (almost)

My love and I, we are united at last.

It's love

There was a minor cosmetic surgery when this moved in – the orange knobs were removed and replaced with these great knobs I found at Lowe’s that look like old ceramic, handpainted knobs. (Actually old would have been even better)

Please ignore the blurriness, my good camera was out of charge.

Filled with my fabric and sewing supplies. I need to organize the fabric and refold the messy pieces, but I wasn’t feeling nearly that organized tonight.

Oooh ... all the fabric in one place

Although I still need to work on the organization inside, I am trying to incorporate soem old containers to hold sewing supplies. My favorite is the antique ice bucket.

Also, not sure how old the cabinet is but it is lined with this amazing contact paper that looks like it’s straight out of the 60s – funky fruits and veggies in blue, lime green, and muted brown. It’s pretty awesome. A smart person would have remembered to take a photo before loading it with craft supplies.

Can you tell a lot of my sewing is for baby gifts? (Pink and blue thread :))

United and it feels so good.

It was love, and then it wasn’t, and then … it might be? Taming the beast

    Doesn’t it make you happy to have everything in one place and organized.?
    This is so pretty. A china cabinet is a great idea for arts and craft storage.
