File this under Fabulous
Just because something is functional, it doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful. In fact, in this day and age, I can’t really think of much that hasn’t been beautified in some way. Laptops, cellphones, brooms, cupcake liners, paper towels, license plate holders, dog collars, you name it, someone has probably figured out a way to stamp a design on it or bedazzle it.

And now we can add filing cabinets to the list. This particular filing cabinet used to the the president and CEO of Boringcorp, but now it shines with a cheery yellow paint job and damask fabricified drawer fronts. Check it out from Hannah at Young and Crafty.

    I’ve always been concerned with how to make meta look cute. Apparently, Hannah has that figured out. Great job!

    I just redid a desk i found on the side of the road for my craft room with bright yellow paint. I have quite a bit of paint left over since the desk is pretty small. I have a black filing cabinet that could use a coat of matching yellow paint. Thanks for the idea!
