In a previous iteration of this retro filing cabinet, I had fun turning it into a planter. There’s nothing I won’t turn into a planter, as so many of our recent projects will attest. Today’s post is a quick one to show you how Hubs made over the filing cabinet for his mancave.
Retro Filing Cabinet Find
We often upcycle roadside rescues, but It’s amazing what you can find left behind inside a rented or newly purchased house. My brother-in-law used to sublet parts of his house and over the years many people came and went…. and abandoned their stuff in various rooms. When he finally moved out of the house himself, he wanted to leave a clean slate which meant completely clearing it of years of accumulation from past renters. Hubs jumped at the opportunity to reclaim this old filing cabinet before it would have hit the curb on moving day. He didn’t know at the time where we’d ever have room for it but he grabbed it anyway.
