It seems that I am forever tweaking things in the sewing room. I am always looking for things that could work or work better. I found this little cart at a local antique fest. You know that enamel top got me! It had lost its wheels, the poor thing.
Not perfect, but better! At the same place, I found one of these paper roll holders. I have wanted one forever, but I am too cheap to pay the prices I have seen on these. This one was a bargain at $15 so it came home with me.
Hubby has a piece of wood that I will mount it to rather than permanently fixing it to my table top. I had a roll of paper from Ikea, but it was too long! Ugh! Well, necessity is the mother of invention, so I wrapped painters tape around the roll in one spot and used a hack saw to cut it down to size. Then I had a small roll that I can use for paper piecing the borders for my Gwennie Inspired QAL Medallion. It was a win-win!
The cabinets in my sewing room are nearing 20 years old now. Hard to believe! Until you looked at those brass trimmed knobs. I found a whole bag of new knobs for $4.99 so I switched them out. Don’t they look better? Changing all 20 of them took about 20 minutes.
Have a great day!
