My room is relatively small - maybe 10 ft x 12 ft. And I have a lot of STUFF that needs to be in there - 3 sewing machines, computer desk, and visible storage for fabric and tools etc. So I wanted to put as much as I could on the walls to make more room in the already packed closet and floor space. I found this toilet paper holder and mounted it on the wall to make a handy ruler and cutting board holder. I holds rulers and boards up to about 14 inches wide. Here it is - on the wall!
This shelf is a free internet swap find - a nice sized CD/DVD holder that I painted and now store the remainder of my fat quarters. ( I know - I have a ridiculous amount of fat quarters)!
