Upcycle a filing cabinet! Awesome for jewelry and makeup. Some people call it refurbishing, others call it recycling, but trenders know it as upcycling. This project will show you how to upcycle a filing cabinet into a storage unit. Awesome for jewelry and makeup.
Who knew that the old, rusting filing cabinet that you have left in the basement for years could be turned into something so beautiful and useful! If you are like any woman, you probably have hundreds of pieces of jewelry sitting on a counter top or bed side table all tangled up and in a pile. Same goes with your makeup except that’s probably isolated to your entire bathroom counter top instead of your bedroom.
This upcycled filing cabinet is exactly what you need!
You can select any color pattern that fits your room needs. You will be painting the entire filing cabinet, minus the drawers, with the paint choice you have selected. The drawers will be covered in a lovely fabric of your choice that complements the paint color you have selected.
Notice how the upcycled filing cabinet in this picture uses a bright floral pattern to break up the brilliant yellow. Use this trick if you decide to go with a color that is just as brilliant.
