I'm thinking about using some of these units to hold my fabric stash and selvages. They're from elfa. I saw them in person at the Container Store. They feel sturdy and they look pretty nice. You can get a wood top to put on them (like a counter top.) Lowe's also has some similar wire baskets.
This arrangement would allow me to see my fabrics, and to remove a drawer and bring it to my cutting table. Each drawer is 11" deep and 20" wide. The 3" deep drawer on top would be good for tools, etc. They have liners so little things won't fall through the holes.
So what do you think? Would dust be a problem? Can they handle heavy loads of fabric? I fold my fabric, but I'm not the "fold around a cardboard template" type. Any ideas? What works for you?
