I am so happy...

Finally it is done! I am so happy and proud to show you what a wonderful sewing closet my father has made for me!!!


So this is the front! Isn't it just awesome?! I cannot say anything else about it. It is even more beautiful than I have ever imagined. I love that the structure of the wood is so vivid and those colorful knobs just pop out perfectly!

  

Do you perhaps know 'Pippi Longstocking'? A very naughty, but dearest little girl with red braids created by Astrid Lindgren. I think I remember her having a closet in which she had many surprises and little gifts for  her friends Annika and Thomas. This sewing closet definitely reminds me on that. Finally, I can organize all my favorite tools and crafty stuff. A closet full of surprises! :)


Oh, I am extremely thankful. This is one of the most precious gifts I ever got. I have seen how much effort and time my father put into this project and it took him about 2 months to finish it (of course not twentyfourseven!). This is a gift for a lifetime. I am always going to appreciate it! Danke liebster Papa!!!

    Annette, I am so happy too for you!! This is a masterpiece!! I love it! The design is neat and useful, and the wood is beautiful. Those knobs are the perfect finish, of course! Now what I do is showing these pictures to my Dad:) He is an architecture, so I kind of expect him to do the same even though I have never seen him working on wood:P
    Your Dad is wonderful!!!

    I would be happy to have one too, but I don't think my stuff would stay organized in the closet for long :)) LOL

  11. Thank you girls so much for these comments! I have told my father all about it and though he does not show, I know he feels very flattered about them! ;)

    @ Laura: I love that light. It does not show well on the photo, but it has white and pink lights looking like a cherryblossom branch. I definitely think, that one can DIY, but mine was simply bought at 'Habitat'. :)

    @ Ophelia K.: hahaha, thank you! I wonder what your father said! ;) Please let me know! My father actually is a chemist!

    @ MushyWear: I think so, too!

    @ Jelena: Well, we will see, whether I can keep my stuff that organized!...I don't think so, too! ;)

    @ Sarah: Mach ich!!! :-*

    @ oonaballoona: thank you for this compliment! I just went over your blog, too! You have some stunning sewing projects!

    @ janul: hahaha! Finally one memorizing Pippi, too! ;) The window was my idea. I wanted to have a glance at all those pretty little things inside.
