I have one of each DMC colour wrapped on plastic bobbins in a wooden cabinet. When I first started cross stitching (1995) I belonged to a Miniature club (building Dollhouses and Miniatures), I designed my own cabinet to look similar to the beautiful and expensive DMC wooden cabinets and one of the Miniaturists built the cabinet for me. I made mine to sit the plastic beading/floss cases inside (without the lids). I LOVE my wooden cabinet and use it all the time. I have never finished it with stain or varnish because I didn't want to ruin it by picking a colour. The wood has changed colour over the years, someday I might treat the wood but for now it is still bare wood. Here are a few photos.
The cabinet has 4 drawers and the top section full of DMC floss. Looking back I should have designed it with more drawers to hold extra skeins of floss.
All the extra DMC skeins of floss I keep inside floss bags in a scrapbook 12 X 12 box from Michaels. I use these cases for all my hobbies, so Dave & I designed a craft shelf to hold scrapbook 12 X 12 cases. I didn't want all the cases to be the same colour, so I bought 2 of each colour whenever Michael's had them on sale. I now have enough to fill the shelf.
On the top of my shelf I have a jewelry holder that spins around, I hang all my Just Nan 3D limited edition ornaments on it. I also have a glass box with my 3D chair (keeps it dust free). You will also see the painted box that I won from Angela.
