Filing cabinets can be so boring. They can also be expensive if you’re buying it new. Solution – Buy a used filing cabinet, you can usually find them at your local Habitat Store, Thrift Store. I happened to pick up mine for ten bucks at a garage sale over the summer.
Here is the before.
Then I grabbed some white spray paint, a gold sharpie pen, a ruler and went to work. I decided to go with a herringbone pattern on the drawers but you could do whatever suits your fancy. Stripes, color block, polka dots. The possibilities are endless. It was such an easy and simple conversion but make so much difference.
Here is how it turned out. Lua was sad that I didn’t make it for her, so she is pouting in the background. 🙂
