Start to my pimp my sewing shelf Part 1

As I wrote the other day I will learn how to sew. I still have a couple of weeks before my course will begin. Enough time to pimp my shelf 🙂

Bought this one some months ago. This shelf was ment to be a divider, but OOOOOOOOPS

Sure, the shelf fit exactly but with over 6 feet in high and wide I came into my living room and the only thing I saw has been this shelf. It was way to big as a divider for my room !!!

I changed my mind and when I bought my sewing maschine and all the other stuff I need for sewing plus the fabric, I decided I want a place only for my hobby.. So I placed the shelf to the wall.

Yes, you can buy some things like doors or baskets for this shelf, but I didnt wanted them all. After some ideas I had, I got it !!!

THE IDEA !!!

First I bought 5 back panels 0.118inch (3 mm) thick :

Each panel in 6ft 0.0472 inch (183cm).in heigh

3 panels are 13.7795 inch (35cm) wide

2 panels are 15.3543 inch (39cm) wide.

Above, below and at both sides right and left  I used  wood screws to make it more stable. At the thinner inner shelves I used small nails. Best way for it, you start in the middle.

This is how it looks at the moment. I didnt wanted to have dust or dirt on my sewing stuff plus the panels giving the shelf more stability.

Today I will start with this chaos:

As you can see or not, there is lot of work to do: sawing, grinding and at the end paint all of them

If you want to know how this continues, you have to wait till this work is done.

Have a nice day

  1. I know what you mean. I didnt start buying fabric this year. No, its more then a year i started to “collect” fabrics lol.
    It just got serious when I bought the maschine this year and put all my fabrics on one table. Hell I didnt knew I had so many, because i put the fabrics in different boxes LOL
    Maybe you will like what I will do with my shelf 🙂
