Before & After: Anne’s File Cabinet Makeover

Have one of these office basics hanging around? Not many of us would think of them as a decoration “plus” in their usual state, but Anne changed all that when she pulled off a remarkable transformation in just one afternoon!

Anne lives in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood of Chicago and sent us an email – she wrote: I wanted to share my weekend DIY project with you, I love your blog but have never thought to try and contribute! This was a great, cheap project that took 1 afternoon to complete…I bought a used file cabinet on craigslist for $50, some new drawer pulls from Home Depot for $12, and I had the fabric and the paint already. Hope this can be inspiring to someone!

Thanks, Anne!
