Your cabinet/table looks lovely.  Now depending on the central cupboard, if you have what I have a deeper cupboard one side and a shallow one the other side, if there is a shelf in the shallower one, you can remove this and store bales of fabric in there - just stand them up on the ends - it is surprising just how many you can get in.  I was lucky and was given a whole pile of cardboard  bale boards that fabric had been wrapped on, and thus if your fabric does not come on a cardboard bale, then I just wind fabric on - especially if I have washed and ironed this and want to keep if free from folded creases.

Now enjoy using your new table.

You are right about the cabinet having a deep & shallow side.  The deep side has my thread storage boxes & some other frequently-used items.  So far, the shallow side has my jelly rolls & spool/bobbin covers.  Still figuring out what will fit where.

As my home is small, so is my fabric stash, so I really don’t need to put that much fabric in it.

I have been making steady progress on the purses for the Purse Project. This is my first real project, since I got the new table. It’s such a pleasure to work on a wooden table! Plus it still has that new furniture smell.
