Sewing Room Redo Progress
The fixed shelf forced the top shelf to be shallow which is fine because my Echino and other Japanese imports look nice laying flat. The width on the organic cotton from Birch Fabric is a bit generous so it didn't fold well on the boards and gets a top shelf along with my precious FQ bundle of Notting Hill and Simply Color.
Thanks for the input on flickr and facebook about the clearance needed at the top edge of the bolts. I decided that a fingers spacing was enough. One of my pet peeves when I'm shopping is when they are crammed in too tight. Now that I'm faced with the dilemma of fitting more in than I have room for I can relate. Even so, I'd rather have less on the shelf that you can get at than have it all fit and struggle to pull out what I want.
The bottom shelf ends up having a bit more height to it which is great because I was thinking of keeping my iron down there. At this point I"m only boarding a full yard or more so the FQs may go in containers on that shelf as well. The overall layout is a work in progress but at least I'm moving forward finally.
Here's a "before shot" of the rack and buckets (on a good day) in the same space:
