Marble Filing Cabinet DIY

While updating and organizing my new craft/office space, I decided our boring old metal filing cabinet needed a brand new look. Luckily I had some beautiful marble paper I had been wanting to do something with. It was the perfect fit! All you really need for this DIY is a filing cabinet, decoupage, and marble paper.
After removing the hardware, it was simple to decoupage the paper to the drawer fronts.
I gave the plastic handles a shiny new look as well with gold leafing. They look so much more luxe with the gold finish!
I love the way it looks in my finished space!

    Some the homes in the DFW TX area were built in the 1960's and 70's and they didn't think of linen and towel storage so these file drawers would work out well. Thanks for the idea!
