Vince set up the chest for me and now, my little knitting area is just the way I want it.
The only thing I would do differently is someday, I might get a table type lamp that extends over into the area of my chair and get rid of the floor lamp but the floor lamp is pretty new so for now, the floor lamp stays. Vince wants to paint the doors on the end table to match the chest doors. I told him I might would paint each quarter of the door a different color and paint the drawer a different color but I’m not even sure I would do anything with it.
It is so nice having all those drawers! They’re small but so much of what I have to put in them is small. So far, I don’t have much in any of them but I have nail files, nail cutters, and a few lotion containers in one drawer. In another drawer I have the knitting needles that have recently come out of projects that need to go back into their appropriate places. For now, I’ll just stick them in a drawer and then every now and them, file them all back where they need to be. Another drawer holds cards, holders, labels that I use for my project bags and leftover yarns. Yet another drawer holds tablets. I have several Kindle Fire tablets, and several other small tablets that fit nicely into the drawer.
On top, I have the jar that holds leftover yarn balls, my grandma’s recipe box and I will put my newest picture of Addie on there too.
Vince is happy that it seems much better built than the one we had seen at Hobby Lobby and I’m happy with my whole new setup!
