New Wool Storage!
I was given this hanging cupboard FREE!! The dark red paint was not going to work in my wool room, so I decided to give it a coat (which turned out to be three coats) of paint. This was really a challenge to paint because of the wainscot in the back. Those grooves just did not want to be painted! I NEED a paint sprayer....sigh.
I finally got it all painted and dry (after three days) and hung it yesterday afternoon. It is VERY heavy, so DH had to be involved. Anyway, it isn't perfect, but it makes a great shelf for my neutral background wools and lights. A little creative planning and I may be able to add more wool!
Now I need to re-hang eight hooked rugs which were previously displayed in this space! Yikes, not sure where they will all go at this point! I'm either going to have to sell rugs or quit hooking since I'm out of space. I counted one day and I have 38 hooked rugs, plus pillows and 3D hooked items!
One thing always leads to another, so I also straightened this cupboard......
AND this cupboard. Whew! I was worn out.
Another thing I realized is that I have waaaaaay too much wool. Years ago I made and sold kits, so in some cases I purchased several yards of specific wool used in the kits. When my grandchildren came along, I gave up the kit making and began babysitting, which took very little wool! I may need to have a blog garage sale with the extra wool I have accumulated. I have about 15 yards of wool stacked up right now (not shown in the pictures) that I need to sell....it just seems wrong somehow to sell it, but I know that I will never use this much! We'll see :0)
Hope you have a great week!
