Old File Drawer Becomes New Desktop Organizer
I was feeling rather inspired by the pictures of brightly colored file cabinets that kept showing up on my Pinterest feed. I knew I wanted one, but didn’t really have the space or need for one.
So, naturally, when I saw a mini version at the thrift store, I knew I had to have it. It was the best of both worlds. I could still achieve the industrial look I loved while keeping it small enough to fit on my desk and help with some much needed small item storage.
