Sew Tidy

This? This has been the pathetic storage system for Very Mary's thread for a Very Long time.


Nothing stays tidy in a basket, she admits it. Directly behind Very Mary's sewing table, she had a beautiful blank wall.



Inspired by a vintage wooden game container she purchased about six Very Long years ago and stored in the basement for that whole time, Very Mary had a Very Clever Brainstorm.


With a few perfectly placed red shelves, Very Mary has a far more effective storage system.

Very Clever! I like old wooden containers like that and like them even better when put to good use.

Perfect! I tried something similar once but it was not so perfect. I used one of those typeset drawers and screwed it to the wall but it was just barely deep enough for a spool of thread so they fall off constantly. It still annoys me to this day but it looks so pretty! Think I should just hot glue the spools on there? :)
