Way back in 2015 I made a storage unit for my art studio table. At the time, I wondered how well a storage caddy made from chipboard would stand up to daily use. Would it be worth it to pay for a unit made from cardboard? Four years later, I can assure you that the answer is a resounding yes.
Maybe you are thinking that it isn’t impressive for a storage unit to last four years. If you knew how I used mistreated it, you would probably think differently. Not only do I use the container regularly, I do not treat it gently. It is crammed full of (sometimes leaky) bottles, paper, sharp implements and a mish-mash of art tools.
Here are some snapshots of it sitting on my desk today.
I store many of my daily go-to supplies here plus assorted bits and bots that I need to tuck out of the way of my workspace.
In two of the drawers I keep my receipts until I pull them out at tax time. Since I am extraordinarily talented at procrastinating on taxes, the drawers end up getting crammed full.
Honestly, it is in as good of shape as it was the day I made it. I have not had to make a single repair to it. So if you have any hesitation about durability in creating something from Gypsy Soul’s many storage options, you no longer need to worry.
Have a great weekend! –Betsy
