Old Metal Filing Cabinet Re-Vamp

$3 dusty old filing cabinet at DI.

To Re-vamp all you need is:
*your trusty old tote's of 12X12 paper
*pick you favorite mismatched pieces... (I like to go RAnDoM)
*Mod Podge/ paint brush

And Vvwaa-LA.....

And Full View of Top and Front....
I kept the sides and edges black, because I liked the contrast.


  1. So cute, and I love that you used a variety of paper. What a good idea!

  2. Oh wow... Now THERE's a mod podge project for you! I went a little smaller than that today, but I still had fun with it! I DO, however have a boring-looking old file cabinet though, that I do my best to hide, and I LOVE this idea! I think I may show my daughter this one too! Thanks for the inspiration! ~tina

  3. LURVE. LURVE!! This is such a good project for everyone! I think I might show this idea to the young woman who are off to collage in our ward. I'm supposed to teach a class in February!Thanks Ali, so creative!

  4. Wow! Good job seeing the potential in that MESS! Great outcome.

  5. That's a good one!

  6. this cabinet must have belonged to the same metalhead dude who had the dresser with all the stickers on the mirror that you refinished. If I close my eyes and think, I can just imagine his decor...scaaarrry.

  7. I'm going to try this with wrapping paper, since my dimensions are a bit larger. Stupid thing is so old and banged up...
