Liked to help my daughter develop nice sewing storage. For a couple of years we used old hutch that could no longer be used for dishes(falling apart) But now nails poking thru & ready to collapse. Would like to find some system where you place fabric directly on racks or in bins.Have collected lots of nice wire bins. Can't require lots of construction as not my DH or son's strong suit.Tried putting together Joann's sewing/cutting table. Always come up with extra bolts & falls apart. Anyone know where you can find some kind of shelving units that don't require much construction, preferably none, and also reasonably priced. Like no more then $100-$150 preferably. And even with possibility to add more units later? Do things like this go on sale day after Thanksgiving?

I can't give you links, but try Ikea - lots of sewists use different kitchen pieces from there. I also saw sewing rooms on Pinterest that were put together with pieces from Ikea. Check those two sites and see if this helps! Good Luck!

I like the cube storage that can be used with or without fabric drawers. I usually get mine at Target, but many stores carry similar products. They go together easily and come in a variety of sizes and finishes.

If you want a long shelf system there is always the old fashioned methods of loose boards. Home Depot/Lowes now carries varoius widths in vinyl boards so light weight, no splinters and comes in white. They will cut length to size. Instead of concrete block try a set of bed risers (Amazon) that a meant for dorm rooms to raise the bed. They are inexpensive, lightweight and support 200-300 pounds.

Why can't your daughter put together the furniture? That's what I do!Good lord, if my mom and I had to wait for my dad to build something for us... we'd STILL be waiting! LOL

Agree about the daughter doing the construction. Most of our marriage dh worked second shift and was gone a great deal. I hung shelves, took up carpeting, put up pictures, moved furniture and probably put together at least 15 bookcases, tables, shelving units, sewing tables, computer desks, etc. They can be heavy, but not that difficult to put together.

When I was growing up, my brothers were all handicapped and my father toenailed everything.... us girls built a lot of stuff, with power tools. No biggie once you get used to it.

Back to the original question - I have the Ikea Expedit bookcase and love it (seems pretty popular for sewing stuff too). Goes together easily; no power tools required, but a cordless screwdriver will make it faster.

I bought some metal shelving from Walmart and plastic boxes. The shelving is sturdy enough for heavy things. I got a chrome one but I saw that they now have a black one. Shelving
