File with Style!

February 16, 2010

Imagine something like the following (don’t have a “before” picture):

Natural Maple Two Drawer Mobile File, 5093

Imagine using some leftover wall paint and 2 knobs ($3 total at Hobby Lobby) and getting something like this:

$3.00 for an upgraded printer stand!  I am sure Martha probably conceals her printer in a million dollar drawer unit or a wool printer cozy, but this is how we roll in the SNM household (in addition to that giant pile of papers you can see!)

    Love it! I did the same thing – minus the knobs. That’s been on the to-do list for oh, a year now.

      Kacey — I hear you! I can’t believe how long it took me to actually paint it versus staring at the ugly oak-y crappy thing! I have a whole new outlook with paint – but still don’t have the TIME!

    Absolutely BRILLIANT! I love it. Martha couldn’t have done any better, even with a cozy.

      Thanks Katherine! I am glad you picked up on the cozy…wasn’t sure if I spelled that right!
