Blue print cabinet? Map cabinet? Cheap!
I need a storage piece for all the largish flat items that pass through this house due to husband's teaching profession. Most are only here a few days, but some linger for months. He brings home a lot of photographs. Some are matted, some not--so they're more fragile. The few that are framed are big space takers, but at least I can slip them behind a piece of furniture. Usually they no more than 20 X 24.
We also usually have empty frames and uncut mats awaiting photos.
Our house is very small, but we do have a basement and that's where I want to to be able to put at least some of these things.
Do you know what a map cabinet is? That's the kind of thing I'm thinking of, so we can stack these things flat, but without them being in a big pile that would damage them. Still I imagine stacks of four to twelve items, depending on what they are.
Can you help me with ideas for this kind of storage? There's no way I could afford to buy such a piece of cabinetry. It wouldn't have to look great, but would need to be sturdy.
