My yarn cupboard

I've been searching forever for ceramic knobs for my vintage pine tall boy when I found these at Mango Tree

They are function, funky and colourful, don't you just love them (I know I do)

Go grab yourself some basic tools, screwdriver (for removing the old handles) and maybe plyers and/or an electric drill. We needed to drill the holes a tiny bit wider to accommodate the new gorgeous ceramic knobs but you might not need to.

All 12 ceramic knobs were on the cupboard doors in about the same time it takes to make a cup of tea!

a lovely place to store my hand made blankets

Now to save some time and a lot of elbow grease (after all you want to enjoy the transformation) I used this furniture polish that contains bees wax and looks like I've spent hours waxing the cupboard, when I didn't. I'm not endorsing the polish, just giving my honest opinion of a good value product. Its called Wood Silk and you can find it in Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys for £1.50, bargain!

and store my yarn for my next ones!

If you want to grab some yourself you can use and exclusive 15% discount by using code 8BY6 at the checkout. I think I'll just sit on the bed admiring my Saturday mornings work (hubby did help a little!)

I love your blanket stack! My blanket is currently over the back of the sofa and John and I snuggle under it in the evenings and I still think 'WOW, I made this!' I really wish I'd leant to crochet long before now. I love your idea of using the drawers for your yarn stash. My yarn stash consists of a handful of balls of part used Stylecraft DK which I'm using for my newest blanket and I just buy a new ball as I run out. I must start stashing! :)
