Yesterday, the cabinet makers were at the house installing the cabinetry and putting on the toe kicks. We now have the base and upper boxes in the kitchen, butler's pantry, laundry room, all the baths and my sewing room. The doors and drawers will be added as soon as the counter tops are in place.
Boy, oh boy, does this make me feel like this house is striding into the finish line (as it should, we only have one week until we move in). I am positively giddy with excitement at this point!
In the picture, you can see my sewing room cabinet in place. I designed this piece to do double duty as a cutting table and as a pattern/notion cabinet. On one side there are six deep drawers. On the other side there are three deep drawers and six shallow drawers. I should be able to house my entire envelope pattern collection in the deep drawers and most of my notions (zippers, elastic, buttons, etc.) in the shallow drawers. I am dying to fill up this bad boy with delicious sewing goodness. My next moment of joy will arrive when my shelves are in place and I can go nuts loading the textiles into the fabric closet.
