New Fabric Cupboard

Finally, here is my new fabric cupboard which I just couldn't live without. It is full to the brim, but at last I have my fabrics sorted. It was getting to the point, with my old storage method, that it was easier to just buy new fabric than to try to dig through the abyss that was my fabric cupboard. I forgot to take before pictures when it was covered in a thick cream paint. It took me 3-4 layers of paint stripper to get it off. Stinky work, but I think it turned out a treat. I used paint that was hanging around the house, so it actually turned out to be a bit of a bargain reno job. I sanded it all back and then the rubbed orange oil all over. It is actually lighter in colour than the pics are showing.
p.s Sorry about the cords in the after pic, I thought about photoshopping them out, but it's rainy, I'm tired, you know the drill.

love love love the new cupboard.
Esp like your blackboard project list, could be a bit scary sometimes to see how much to do?

Nothing a wet rag won't fix...
