I’m excited to be sharing my wood trimmed filing cabinet makeover today because it fixed a problem I think many of us face.
The practical vs pretty challenge.
I have a problem with being practical, especially when it’s not pretty. Take filing cabinets, for example. I needed one. They are useful, but metal filing cabinets aren’t necessarily pretty. The challenge I had was a stack of papers that continued to grow on my desk, and then they began multiplying 🙁
But …the cure wasn’t pretty.
It was a filing cabinet.
A few weeks ago I finished my filing cabinet makeover and I changed my mind. I found a great deal on beat up old metal filing cabinet at my favorite thrift store and hauled it home. I knew right away when I spotted it that it would be perfect for my idea.
Why have a plain file cabinet when a super-duper upcycled pretty filing cabinet with wood trim, colorful and stenciled is so much more fun?
