We literally just got the last cabinet completed and all the pieces together for the cutting table:
I am just thrilled by the fact that it looks so good and I have more room to move around than I thought. You can see the Billy Bookcases along the back wall, partially filled with fabric. There will be another bookcase where the ladder is standing now: it is scheduled to be delivered the end of next week. In front of the bookcases you see one end of my humongous new cutting table. The materials for finishing the top won't arrive until next week either, so you can read more about that in another post.
Here is a view from the end of the room:
The table base is basically made from 3 components, all of which I got from Homedecorators.com:
2 Martha Stewart Craft Space Flat File cabinets along the front side (because it faces the door).
1 Stanton 6+1 drawer wide storage cart which occupies the space between the two cabinets
3 Supreme 3 tier metal shelving units side-by-side along the back.
The larger lower drawer of the stanton unit holds my hams and most of my bulky pressing tools and it is convenient since it stands opposite my ironing board and press, of which you can see just a tiny bit on the left side of the photo above).
Here is a partial view of the cabinets side by side from the door:
The whites are not quite the same, which I knew when I ordered them, but I figured it wouldn't matter that much and it is much less evident IRL than in this photo, either that or I just don't notice, which may also be true. All of the cabinets from Home Decorators were supposed to be 36" high, except for the Stanton unit which is 35 1/2, but that wasn't the case. The cabinets ranged from 35 1/2 to 36 1/2 high, so there was a bit more shopping and cutting and gluing involved than originally planned, but it all works and I am happy.
It will be even better when the top is finished. But in the meantime I have a lot of unpacking and planning to do.
