Look at this fab idea

I saw this a while back and Lee said get one, it has arrived today and is is the best thing i have ever had, i have just started to sort mine out, what a great space saving storage idea, and they do different ones, these are all hand made too, i have just seen on their website if you needed one for Christmas you should order it soon as they are handmade they can take up to 15 days....


Sorry about the pants photo it is really dark and dull here, i have not re sized the picture so you can click on it to see the full size, it was only £39.99 i am so super impressed with it, the inks pads are full size distress inks and each shelf can be moved to suit you, i am such a lucky girl, and now everything will be at my finger tips and all sorted out....


They can be found "HERE" and are from craft racks they do triple and single and ink racks, and ribbon racks, and all are left bare so you could paint them if you wanted, anyway i thought i would share as i am so impressed, big hugs love Pops x x
