I used almost every inch of the inside of the cabinet. The white drawers in the middle hold my beads and all my pink and blue cq stasch. The bottom doors show my books and magazines where I can finally get to them easily. I used a small box for each color of my thread, silk ribbon, etc. and put them on each side of the white drawers in the shelves. Now I can take out a 'color' that I want to use and find everything that I have in stock to use. This was a wonderful thing to accomplish also.
