DIY: Filing Cabinet Side Table

Filing Cabinet Side Table //

New on Better Homes and Gardens:ย Filing Cabinet Side Table. Filing cabinets are “antiques” these days. I mean, most of my billing and paperwork is currently online. No need for all the stacks of paper, and that means no need to ORGANIZE those stacks of paper. So, what should we do with the filing cabinets? How about a filing cabinet side table? Yup! It’s a perfect side table to keep my art supplies out of sight and organized.

It’s my newest project on the Better Homes and Gardens blog. I hope you can check it out, and let me know if you try this out for yourself!

      I’m not sure what kind it is. I found it at a thrift shop. Maybe they have tabletop metal filing cabinets on Amazon?

    This is very cool! Thinking about doing it for a nightstand/storage in my daughters room.
