We have a dead spot in our very small foyer behind the door. I had originally wanted a hall tree bench type thing to go in that space, but that was before my knitting addiction. Now I have decided it would be a great area for organizing my yarn.
has agreed to build me a custom cabinet to fit there. What I have in mind is a china cabinet type thing with glass doors at the top and shelves upon which I will place large bowls (flea markety, eclectic collection) to fill with many center pull balls of yarn. At the bottom, instead of a cabinet type opening, I'm thinking drawers. Maybe various depths. A place for patterns, needles and other yarn that I maybe wouldn't want to display.
What I want to know from you guys is, what have I not thought of? Do you think this would work nicely, and do you have any ideas to add?
At the rate we get projects done around our house, it might be awhile before it is done, but I want to have a firm plan in place when he is ready to start. He does good work! The most recent project he completed is a fireplace mantle
, and he also built a wonderful entertainment armoire
. Both pieces are our own designs.
