When I first started posting photos of my new studio space, several people commented about how much light there was, and with 4 large windows, that was entirely true……
However, when I started putting the fabric on open shelves, I began to worry about how the wonderful light would harm the fabrics. I sure didn’t want each piece to have a faded line running thru it!!!
The other concern that I had was for dust. As I ironed and folded all of my fabric, I had to stop often to sweep up the dust bunnies that had formed around the ironing table….just in front of the fabric shelves. I was astounded just how much lint and dust was thrown off by the fabric.
After thinking about it for a while, I decided that sheer curtains were the way to go. The Ikea shelves provided a perfect surface to attach the curtain rods and I can easily see that the fabrics are better protected……
I hate not being able to see the individual fabrics as easily, but by using the sheer fabric, I can still see the colors……
Hopefully the room is COMPLETELY FINISHED now…..until I think of the next thing!!!

You are so smart. Great idea!
Great solution to your problem. Being able to still see the colours is the best part.
I never thought of sheets. Brilliant.
