UPcycle – Entry Way Table

FINALLY!  After more than 1 year of searching for the perfect entry way "table"... I found it! Remember this progress pic of the entryway?

UPcycled – Vintage Frame Thread Holder

When I first set up my craft/sewing room I set out on the hunt for the run of the mill mini rack spool holder for my small collection of thread.  Unfortunately there is not a variety of thread storage available at the big name stores.  Not to mention they are not cheap!  I caved and bought… Continue reading UPcycled – Vintage Frame Thread Holder
