DIY: Pattern Cabinet Stripe Make-Over



So one day I was minding my own business visiting the local Joann Fabrics on my lunch hour. I was strolling through the store looking for something to buy. I decided that I needed some more denim fabric, because as you know, you can never have too much denim fabric or any other fabric for that matter. Heather [yep we know each other well] was cutting this necessary denim fabric and I noticed a sign on the counter, now I had seen this sign before but I just ignored it. I took a closer look at the sign that read" Store fixtures for sale includes cabinets." I said to Heather, what cabinets? She said "the pattern cabinets." Me "seriously?" She said they are $10.00. I then went to pick out the cabinet that I wanted, paid the $10.00 and scheduled my pick-up date.

Since I had already started turning my basement into my new sewing room, I had to do a  little modification to fit this cabinet but make no mistake it was going to be a part of my sewing room. Now that it had a new home, it was time to make this cabinet fit in with my new sewing area, that meant it had to be painted or covered some how. I decided to use wrapping paper and Mod Podge on this baby. Now the trick was to choose the wrapping paper, I decided on this stripe paper that I also used inside a small bookshelf. I had done this treatment before so it was a breeze to apply after the stickers were all removed from the cabinet. The cabinet is finished and I am almost finished with the entire sewing room. I am including a sneak peek of a few of the accessories in the room.



So here is a little peek at what else is going on in this room....only a peek!
