    Pick out a color that works for that area and spray paint the file cabinet after a light sanding.

    Here is a photo of the one I did, it was an old grayish brown one my aunt gave me. I dry brushed it with an off white chalk paint to brighten and freshen it up but keep it vintage looking (dry brushing is where you get paint on the brush, but then wipe most of the excess off so that when you paint, it comes out more streaky and the color underneath shows through), I did two coats of dry brushing. Then I painted small picture frames and printed out the giraffe picture and glued those on as the drawer handles instead of the actual door handles:

    If you know someone who has the skills, what about making a box (top and two sides) to fit over it? Fasten a door to the front and when you need to access files, open door, pull out drawer(s) From your description of your room you need to really hide the file cabinet.
