We are very lucky to have a little collectors/antiques/second-hand shop round the corner from us. The owner spills his goods for sale onto the pavement in front of the store and I often drive past and look over to see what delights there are!
A few weeks ago I had driven by and spotted a sweet little storage unit for sale. I drove past each day that week and kept looking over when I finally decided to walk round and take a closer look. Well, needless to say I walked away £25 poorer but with a lovely little cupboard that I already had in mind to fill with all my crochet bits and bobs!
Here it is…
It fits this little corner of our hallway like a glove -as if it was made to measure!!
I proceeded to fill it with my current crochet projects and yarn…
…and crochet books!
And then I had a great idea! Some of you may remember that I bought a piece of filet crochet whilst on holiday in August from a second hand stall in the village of Urk in The Netherlands… https://coastalcrochet.com/2015/09/22/crochet-spotting-on-holiday/
Well, I have positioned it behind one of the glass doors and it fits perfectly- WOW!!
It really was meant to be my new little crochet cupboard!
I love it!
Now the only question is….do I paint it white!? I have a tendency to want to paint some old furniture white and this has been done very successfully with other pieces of furniture in our house. But I’m not sure about this one. My feeling is to leave it as it is but I’m open to suggestions!
Happy Crocheting everyone!
