DIY Fun!!! Make a metal file cabinet into a nice accent piece for any room

DIY an old metal file cabinet and give your decor new life!!! This video will give you some ideas for your own DIY projects. I love doing DIY around the house because its unique and it allows me to be creative without having to spend a ton of money. This is the design I choose but if your doing you own DIY the choices are endless and you can use paint, paper, or even stencils to create the look you want.

Planning to do something similar to this in our bedroom. We are using three filing cabinets in place of drawers after we lost a lot of furniture due to a flood. Trying to save money, but I still want it to look nice. Thanks for the vid! xoxo

using 180 ro 240 grit sandpaper will do just fine.  I prefer 180.

Nefertiti Thomas says:

@grofoopers I didn’t take out the drawers completely. I just removed the handles and then put them back on when finished.
