BisleyÂ® 5-Drawer Cabinet
Nice little cabinet. Green color is not as vibrant as I had hoped for when ordering it. Works well and was a nice purchase. Seems sturdy, just a bit expensive for what you are getting.

I make high-end custom made pens. Due to the various styles and materials used in the process, I have lots of small parts and tooling. So I had a need for a good, sturdy storage and separating system. I had been using small, compartmentalized plastic boxes and fishing tackle boxes but they never seemed to hold everything just quite right. Then I found these 5 drawer cabinets. These things are built extremely well in England. They are heavy and the quality shows. They remind me of cabinets I used to see in machine shops. My cabinet doesn't sit on a table in an office but on a workbench in a shop. And it looks like it belongs. These truly are commercial grade. The available divider inserts allow me to customize the drawers to my liking. The pulls take labels to customize the unit, but all the available colors are also a good way to help you organize by color. Some have commented they think the price is a little steep. To them I say, "You get what you pay for". You definitely get what you pay for with these.

Originally I hesitated at the steep price of these drawers, but after looking around for a less expensive alternative, and finding only clunky plastic drawers that I knew I would hate after about a week, I decided that I might as well try these. Twelve years later, I am so glad I did. They still look gorgeous, modern and brand new!
Originally I bought one cabinet for my husband to keep our important papers organized after a birth-certificate-loosing scare (He was born in France. Requesting a new birth certificate would have been a horrible chore.) Recently, I realized our home office with its lovely (but maybe not perfectly shelved) built-in cabinets needed to be reorganized. Spread out over two cabinets, I had greeting cards arranged in an eclectic mix of pretty boxes that I had been collecting since childhood. Stacked neatly in another two cabinets, I had our Circa notebook paper collection and our looseleaf paper, photo paper, cardstock, and printing labels. I decided another Bisley splurge was necessary.
During the reorganization I was able to condense everything neatly into two Bisley Cabinets and a few Bigso Paper drawers and boxes. They all fit into two of my built-in cabinets! Because everything is labeled and nothing is stacked anymore, I can find and retrieve everything easily. Whatâ¿¿s more: reorganizing with the Bisley cabinets completely cleared two of our office cabinets! With the empty cabinets I was able to clean out everything I had stashed away in our den. Now the interiors of my cabinets are so beautiful that I have to take a few seconds to gaze admiringly them every now and then.
If this cabinet fits your needs. You should definitely splurge on it. Itâ¿¿s worth it.
(Notice my husband hasn't labeled his drawers- but we still know where our documents are.)

Quilters must have
This is my new favorite thing for my sewing room. It is great thread storage. Each drawer will hold 60 rolls of coats and clark 250 yard spools of thread. And it is just the right size footprint for countertops. You will LOVE it. The hardest part will be picking a color! No buyers remorse here!
