A Mini Sewing Room Make-Over!

 
A little while ago, a good friend thought I might like this cupboard for my sewing room. Of course, I said I'd love it! Over the long weekend, we did the move.
 
First off we had to get the piano out.
 
But first we had to empty this book shelf to give us
more turning space in the doorway.
 
So off came all the books!
Once we got the piano out we ran into a problem. The cupboard was too big to get in the door. It was too tall to tip on it's side as we couldn't lever it around the hallway. So, in through the window came the cupboard.
Now I have more storage and can show off my pretty things.
 
Everything is now stored away.
I even found the sewing room floor!

Cupboards!!! Cannot have enough of them - a room always looks tidier when there are cupboards - now you only have to remember where you have put everything!! Such a nice feeling when you have finished a job like this!!

OMG!!!!!!! I thought I had a lot of stash! Your new cupboard is great. If I wasn't able to store my fabrics on shelves in the wardrobe of our spare room, I'd be after a cupboard just like yours. Couldn't fit it in my room though...you've seen it -jam packed already!
