Lindsey from Everyday Originals added a bright splash of color to her office with this functional filing cabinet in Devotion!
Hi everyone! It’s Lindsey from Everyday Originals popping in with a quick, but functional makeover.
I scored this solid wood file cabinet for $15 on Craigslist. We’re not really file cabinet type of people since we do everything electronically, but we were feeling like we were lacking storage in our office since my desk has no drawers.
With the deep blue wall color I knew the color Devotion would really pop. I gave it a quick sanding, as there was a finish on it and then two coats of paint with a few touch ups after that. I used all the same hardware it came with, as I thought the slightly tarnished gold went great with the red-ish color.
It’s the perfect amount of added storage we needed and now, with a pop of color in the room, the whole space feels brighter. I was brave to choose this color, I’m not one to go with bright and bold choices, but I’m thrilled I did!
