My wonderful husband built and installed these shelves for me for Mother's Day. AND he painted them purple because it's my favorite color <3 Aren't they gorgeous?
The shelves are made entirely of 1 x 12s and are roughly 5 1/2 by 5/12 ft with shelves/cubbies of alternating sizes. Having the shelving staggered makes it easier to quickly nail each divider in without having to worry about installing another directly on top or below.
He attached the shelf to the wall studs using brackets and left enough space above and below for scrap boxes and other storage. There is even a little nook between the wall and the side of the unit for my ironing board to be stored nicely in too! As soon as I get it out of my dining room...
All my fabric used to be in boxes and plastic tubs, I never could find what I was looking for and wasn't all that inspired to go digging through it all. Now I can see all the fun prints and colors I have all nicely stacked and folded. It makes me happy to just stand and look at it all! It also stops me from buying the same fabric twice (which I have done more than once because I forgot what version/color I had!)
