$5.00 Fabric Storage

     It's been a couple of months since I've blogged due to cataract surgery and I'm really anxious to get going again.  My left eye still doesn't see as well as my right eye and I will still need glasses for distance.  Distance being anything beyond three feet away.  My surgeon wants to give my left eye some more time before getting new glasses.  That being said, now that my left eye has been done, I can see the computer, sew, do needlework and read clearly.  However, I just couldn't wait to share my new fabric storage piece, or, I should say, pieces.  I just had to wing it on the photography since I couldn't bring the camera into focus.

     The bottom piece was solid maple and came complete with the little brass label holders.  Hubby added the bun feet.  This piece was free!

     The top piece was painted a dark brown and cost $5.00 at Goodwill (it was broken).  Hubby sanded it back and added fluted molding to the bottom and then painted both pieces Navajo White (my very favorite white).  

     I have very limited space so this allowed me to bring in some of my favorite fabrics from the storage cabinets in the garage.

I think it's just perfect!
