Sewing Room

My niece just bought her a house and I found something in it that I can make, and that I really like! I wanted a wall in my sewing room that’s on the end of the room to be a wall of shelves so I can put all my fabrics and all my jars of stuff on it. The folks that she bought the house from had made this in the walk in closet in the bathroom. I hope she doesn’t mind that I am sharing it on here. I don’t think she will. Anyway I want to make me one like this in the sewing room with 1x12” boards and the 1x2” ones.


A close up. I don’t know if you can see the 1x2’s or not but they just nailed those to the wall and sit the boards on those all the way down the wall and then they went back in and added the 1x2 strips on the front side of it. That’s what caught my attention because it makes it look nicer with the 1x2 strips over the boards fronts.


Really close up so you can see the 1x2’s that are nailed on the wall for the 1x12” boards to sit on.


I am trying to find jars like this to put my buttons and things in. This is what I want the shelves for. These jars are larger than they appear on here. They had candles in them. I had a couple myself and then my sister in law gave me 3 I believe it was. One I already had is larger than the ones she gave me but still the same shape and all.


And see my fabrics? Something else that I want to put on that shelf. This is the wall I want to do the shelves on to. It’s at the end of my sewing room.


I will probably paint the 1x2’s and the 1x12 boards the same color as the wall so it will blend in with the wall and not stand out. I want the fabrics and the clear jars of things to be what you see and not the shelf.

OK that’s it for today.

I don't mind at all that you're sharing the shelf idea! :0) I'm just glad you took pictures before I threw a bunch of stuff on it! LOL It would make a nice addition to your sewing room. Go for it!
