Confidential File

Lindy from Cottage Hill is hiding a dirty little secret: She likes to file papers in her sleep. Not really, but she has found a clever way to disguise a filing cabinet while providing herself with a handy nightstand at the same time!

If you need a nightstand, and you have even the most marginal of sewing skills (or hot gluing skills, in my case) you could have yourself a pair of these by tonight. Seriously, my Goodwill always has tons of these filing cabinets, for like, five bucks. Can’t beat that with a stick.

Well, you can. But that doesn’t mean you should.

  1. LOVE THIS IDEA!! It looks so sleek! Who would have guessed what hides underneath? Brilliant!

  2. Ok – this is far and away my favorite better after! I love, love this filing cabinet makeover. It reminds me of the linen skirted table with mirror top from (which is around $330.00 total for the base, linen cover and mirror).
    Great job.

  3. What a great idea. It makes me wish I still had a little filing cabinet. I think this is one of the best “better-afters” ever!

  4. Wow, that’s such a great idea! I love it! Filing cabinets can be such an eyesore, but this certainly solves that problem! Thanks for posting! 🙂
