Lateral filing cabinet

by Joanne
I am moving a lateral file, basic tan boring cabinet into my office which is industrial farmhouse style. Any easy ideas for making this look a bit nicer would be appreciated. Thinking of painting with chalk paint - black and doing something unique with the pulls perhaps? Would love to get input/ideas, thanks

    Sounds like you have the right idea!! That's what I would do...maybe get a few cool vintage style magnets to put on it.

    Dollar store picture frames. Remove glass, painted the frame to match the cabinet and some magnets to the back and position on the drawer. It will look like decrative molding.

    Thanks, has anyone redone a lateral file with wood or paper? Just looking for ideas and pics if anyone has been successful

  • Black chalk board paint looks awesome on these big beasts! I would paint the side that faces out, and if you can find a stencil or even contact paper for a brick look, I really think that would look awesome.
