Cupboards and Folds...

 It has been one of those weekends where I still feel like it's Friday and I need a weekend for a break...Go go and then go some more.  There are so many things on the calendar this week I can hardly read the appointments.  They have all run together....


Remember when I brought this dismal cupboard home...I have happily marked this off the list...complete.


I am in love with this vintage wallpaper and how it mimics the arch on the top of the cupboard.


My frustration grows daily over not having enough time to create.  Half of the issue is rearranging all the wonderful trinkets and storage in my room.  I get so excited to add the smallest of items.  It often creates and entire room redo.


Loads of fabric fit in this cabinet.  All of my vintage fabric in one spot. Pulling linens out of tins and drawers I had forgotten so many of them.  All the fat quarters are at eye level for inspiration.  Patterns fit nicely in fabric cubbies I had made.


Top shelf has to be folded onto my boards still.  I can only do so much in a day...


The best part is the amount of space it freed up in my locker cabinet.  This now holds all my yardage of new fabric.  Looks like I need to get shopping...Ha!  That will have to wait until another week with my tight schedule.

Renee your cabinet turned out great. The wallpaper is so cute. You really have a good eye. Your locker is so neat I love it for fabric. You know there is always room for more piece of fabric. (hehe)

Love that wallpaper. This cabinet is a lot like my cabinet that Dave said I shouldn't buy! LOL (I ended up using the chalkboard paint in the panels of mine, I couldn't decide between wallpaper and paint.)

Renee, what pattern did you use to make your fabric pattern bins? Did you use interfacing of some sort that helps them stand up?
