Now for some people, the before picture of my file cabinet will look perfectly acceptable and even desirable (such lovely wood….you’re not going to paint it!?).
About a year ago, I didn’t care for the honey-oak look, and the brass handles would not look good with my desk. So yes, I painted it. (Antique white, cherry red handles, pieces of scrapbook paper in the label area.)
And would you believe it? I spent an hour or so making file folders, organized all our paper clutter, and it’s been kept neat and up-to-date for almost a year…. yay!
