I was fortunate enough to design my elementary art room...the best part is
one wall with vertical rectangle cabinets without the doors or shelf boards.
I use them as "Folder Holders" for each class. There are 28 of them, (14 in
each row) and all folders are kept there. I added boards to rest the
folders on giving me an extra triangular shaped space to store unfinished/
lost stuff. These rest on a counter that is an extra 12" wide. Under the
counter are 8, 24" wide drawers (2 rows of 4) topped with 4 drawers and
three sections of lockable storade cabinets. The counter space and under
storage units are wonderful but the folder holders are the best! Hope I
have explained the unit well enough.
