The line up...

I cannot place my finger on when or how the shevling situation became a BFD that has this quilter, her in-house engineer and the two younger involved parties ready to grab some 2x4s and duct tape and call this stuff DONE!  I am somewhat concerned at how those shelves would actually look so I took some time to see what kind of DIY shelves are out there

This is the first Ivar from I kea.  It has everything  I need...I think...


These are so practical from Danny Kuo!






Another selection that is cool and interesting on Hometalk .  I am not THAT cool and I need more functionality.





Facilisimo has these DIY with crates, a pop of colour and wheels! 





And these DIY Industrial Shelves are to LIVE for with a how to on Beneath My Heart.



One more set of industrial style shelves that are DIY but sadly too small for what I need is on
These are my BABIES!!!!!! The $100 fee is AWESOME but I would need a been a truck, driver and perhaps some some muscle ;) But if I have my way there will be MINE!!!!!!!! I love Craigslist!


Not sure what I will be doing tomorrow but I think it will involve another trip to Ikea or possibly to DC!  Wish me luck!

You know, whatever you find and are able to lug into your space will make you happy. No matter what it looks like, it will be covered with beautiful fabric anyway. Sure, we all want beautiful furniture, but we NEED storage. Go with whatever suits your needs. Happy New Year!

I think the last photo has the strongest shelves, wild worry about the first keeping shape but if they are never going to be moved maybe they will be okay if they had an added back to them it would make them more robust best of luck love Ikea

Good luck with it! I have the Ikea Expedit units, but of course they've stopped making them now... I think they did a 'new and improved version' though, basically cube shapes, but you can fit 2 stacks of half/full yard cuts next to each other in each section quite happily

Ikea is the best! I wanted a dresser for my fabric ~ it's in the sunroom, all the fabric needed to be protected. I ended up with two, in red, at a very reasonable price!
Have fun at Ikea!!!

Those are some great shelves!! I wish we had an IKEA close by. Can't wait to see how you arrange your room!

That's quite a selection! My favorites are the ones from Craigslist and the practical ones. How fun would it be to climb up the shelves in your quilting studio?? I might have to look into these :) Looking forward to more pics!

Wow, hard choice. I find I always like some stuff about one shelving and dislike other stuff about it. I have not found a perfect fit yet.
Here's hoping that you do.

Luck, luck, luck! I like Ikea but sadly the closest one to me is 2 1/2 hours away. When will they decide that only having 1 in NY way up in Buffalo isn't good?

Wow -- thanks for sharing all the great ideas Kim. Loving the variety. Can't wait to see what you decide.
