File Cabinet Makeovers
There are certain things in an office that I wish we didn’t need and that I find hard to find stylish alternatives for. One of the biggest “problem” items is a file cabinet. If you’ve ever shopped for one then you know they usually look like this:
Not everyone cares about what their file cabinets look like but as more people are coming to care about their workspace, they start to notice the eyesore that is a bulky file cabinet. So what are your options?
- Go paperless (not feasible for most people)
- Hire a carpenter and turn a an armoire, dresser or other piece of furniture, into a file cabinet
Give your file cabinet a makeover
Here are just a few of my favorite file cabinet re-dos that I’ve come across
Blueprint File Cabinet
This was one of my favorite that I found, it literally looks like a blueprint of a file cabinet. This DIY turned a boring, ugly file cabinet very easily into the one you see now.
Wallpaper Chic File Cabinet
If I were to pick a favorite out of all of the re-dos, it would be this one. You don’t even notice it’s a cabinet but a chic addition to any workspace. Done with wallpaper and some glue, something anyone can do.
Contact Paper Charm Cabinet
This cabinet was done over in an affordable contact paper design, I’d say this one would be the easiest out of all of the file cabinet re-dos. Something anyone can do!
Chalkboard File Cabinet
Another great use for chalkboard paint, this cabinet transformed a very utilitarian file cabinet into a bright and useful cabinet + chalkboard combo.
