I added some decals to the top and front to give it a little panache. I plan to put small spools of thread and bobbins on the dowels and I think it's a perfect place for my variety of sewing needles, different sizes of sewing machine needles, snaps, hook/eyes, etc. The finishing touch was the pearl chain for the doors; it took me awhile wandering around Hobby Lobby for just the right touch and I found this in the fabric section with all the other trims; plus I hit a 50% off sale...what more could you ask for?
I tied the end of the chain around the left door with embroidery floss and made a ribbon loop at the other end of the chain; so I just slip the loop off the right door pull when I need to open the doors. Easy Shmeasy! I'm really pleased with the end result....little by little my "studio" is coming together. Interesting tidbit for you.....I found a spool of thread in the cabinet with a price tag still attached...are you ready? It was 50 cents. Are you kidding me? A run of the mill spool of thread costs $2.99 these days. If you want a better quality thread, I've spent close to $5.00 a spool. Crazy!
