New Yarn Storage

I have been absent from blogging since I have been busy tying up a lot of loose ends – none of them blog worthy until this one.

I purchased this buffet and hutch at the same time I purchased the dining room table and chairs. It is almost exactly the size of the post office desk I store yarn in.The two pieces are now back to back in my studio.

I had acquired a lot more yarn and it was stored in my store room. This was the perfect piece to put the rest of the yarn. It allows me to see what I have and inspire me to create with it.

You can see the yarn better with the glass doors open.  I keep them closed to keep the yarn dust free and I am still able to see the yarn.

I was able to utilize the lower part of the buffet to store odd balls of yarn. It took me a while to realize I could use these leftover plastic drawers and wood crates I had which fit the space perfectly.

The only part I have not showed you is the inside of the drawers. One side holds my knitting needles and the other holds more yarn.

Stay tuned – I expect to start using some of this yarn now that I can see it!

Perhaps you need to open a yarn shop! WOW! And I thought I had lots of beads...ok, probably as many beads as you do yarn! We all have our vices don't we! Nice way to display and store them!
