Stored in drawers

Somewhere in the last couple of weeks I had a birthday, and I treated myself to a set of drawers I've been wanting for ages. They're Alex from IKEA and are wide and shallow - perfect for threads and my pattern sheets.


You can see the top four are filled with threads, although I will likely end up rearranging once I see how it works. I'm already thinking I might put some dividers in eventually. The bottom two drawers have patterns and so on; it's wonderful to have them stored neatly at last. I'm also thinking of getting a second unit and placing it directly on this one (minus the castors!).

I'm up to 3 ALEX drawer sets now and have room for one more! Love mine for thread, rulers and pantos!

I have a birthday coming up and those drawers are all that I would like!
I don't mind how many I get! :o))))))

Oh I love my Alex drawers! Quilting life would not be the same without them.

I've looked at these a few times in Ikea but havn't purchased yet. It's nice to see how well they work, they will defintiely be going onto my must buy list now. Sooner rather than later I hope as I'm trying to reorganise a lot at home and in my sewing space at the moment.

I'm an IKEA junkie. I just bought a 4 drawer dresser that I have turned into my ironing station. Love the drawers in them. Perfect for storing my patterns and extras! My BFF has 2 or 3 of your thread drawers like yours, and just bought individual drawers in the kids department that slide under her long arm and are perfect for extra storage. IKEA is just the best!
