I am SO happy with my latest project! I’ve been after yarn storage for ages, drooling over the lovely creative spaces on Instagram but unable to afford a certain cubed block from a certain Scandinavian store. So when I happened across this unit for sale on Fb Marketplace for just £20, I jumped on them.
As you can see, they weren’t in top notch condition, but that didn’t bother me. Neither did the missing shelf. My plan was immediate – I’d remove the doors and use them to make a new shelf.
Andrew helped me pick them up and then… rain stopped play. There was no way we could move the unit into the Shed when it was tipping it down! Eventually the rain let up enough to dismantle and reassemble it. He also helped me cut down the doors. Then I screwed the parts to where the old broken shelf was and refitted the upright sections.
It went together exactly as I’d planned and looks pretty close to how I imagined it. Once it was filled with the yarn that had previously been hidden away in my Ottoman, it made the shed look and feel very cosy. It was hard work, but well worth it.
