Reluctant to part with years of drawings, paintings and textile designs, I was in dire need of flat files for storage. Fortunately, I’d saved several of the sturdy cardboard cartons that catalog companies used to ship my orders of full-sheets of watercolor paper.
To hold my entire collection of creative work, I simply stacked the open cartons on shelves in my basement. To reinforce the ends of the boxes, I used duct tape.
