Yea!!! I got rid of the old, bulky shelves in my sewing room. (Can't quite bring myself to call it a "studio") My son-in-law was here for a visit so I put him to work! We went shopping at the local home improvement centers and found the storage cabinets and added the drawer units and shelves. There are still some things to be rearranged and changed, but I love it. The old unit had three big shelves so I had all of my fabric in odds and ends of plastic bins stacked three high. Of course every time I needed a piece of fabric it was in one of the bottom bins. Now I can just pull open a drawer to find get what I need. Boy, did I find a lot of "what were you thinking" and "ugh, this is really bad" fabric that got weeded out. It's very interesting to see what colors and types of fabric were "in" and that I really liked once upon a time. I can't remember who made the comment, "if it's still ugly, you just haven't cut it small enough", or something like that. That's about 99% true, but there are some fabrics that are just plain bad. My new rule is that I can't add new fabric if it won't fit in the existing space. Think that will work?
The old tv has to go! Mr. D suggested a new flat screen that will fit on the top shelf to right of the iron. Should fit perfect. For now I just have to move the old one out of the way.
