Last week, we took in a large donation of filing cabinets! There are so many great things you can do to repurpose filing cabinets. One awesome idea we found over on Curbly explains how to turn an old filing cabinet into a rolling kitchen cart. Who wouldn't benefit from more counter and storage space in their kitchen?
A quick walk through the 17th Street ReStore Home Improvement Outlet and we found the following supplies*:
- two drawer filing cabinet: $15
- casters: $1/ea
- 1x4 lumber: $.50/board
- spray paint: prices vary
For less than $50, we could easily reproduce this awesome kitchen cart!
Another idea is this simple filing cabinet makeover. This DIY blogger painted their filing cabinet and affixed some 8x10 picture frames to the front for a chic upgrade.
This blogger applied a chalk paint and upgraded the hardware on the drawers to turn an old metal filing cabinet into a fresh, stylish piece of furniture.
Perhaps you are the ultimate crafter and need to refresh your storage space. This DIYer turned a tall 4 drawer filing cabinet into the ultimate chalkboard/storage combo. The best part? They purchased their filing cabinet from their local Habitat for Humanity ReStore!
