DIY File Cabinet


I made a file cabinet for my office to help get me organized. I do not like the look of ugly metal file cabinets, so I decided to make a file cabinet of my own.
I just used some plywood and some drawer pulls to get it done. Click on the link for a quick tutorial.
File cabinet is hidden behind this bottom cabinet door.
