I thought I'd do a bit of sewing. I gathered a few vintage 40s fabrics (mostly barkcloth) and made this pocket storage. I wanted something to hide the fabric in this cupboard located near my front door. I now find the pockets are very handy for holding my keys, gloves, mail and whatever. I never have enough storage space in my cottage.
I added an old shelf above my table, but the entire room needs a makeover..
PS Carole..Scoundrels and Rouges thanks so much for the lovely table runners (on this table) and other goodies you sent. You are such a sweetheart! I've been playing with my new toy the "Johnson Ruffler" and I've made a few small items. Thanks again and again. Glad you are doing ok in Oklahoma. It will be so nice when you are able to post again on your blog. We all miss you.
