    Storage bench turned file storage. Originally from Martha Stewart. This is a really neat idea if you don't have a lot of space but need to store files. This is better than having a bunch of file boxes because you can still sit on the bench. This works if you don't have a dedicated space in your home for an office, but could also work in a small home office that might need extra seating. :) A great idea for office storage - under bench in living / dining room

    Here's another great idea from Martha Stewart's back catalog of space saving solutions, converting a traditional blanket chest into a "multitasking mini office". Inside, an organizer's dream is revealed: bulletin board, filing cabinet, stationery supplies drawer organizers...

  • Trina Guess-Wilkerson

    I really like this idea rather than a file cabinet!! Mini Office in a Chest: No space for a home office? Keep folders, supply organizers -- even a bulletin board -- right inside a chest in your bedroom.

  • Molly Revord

    We could turn the chest in the office into this! DIY Mini Office in a Chest (filing cabinet, tray, and cork board) from Martha Stewart.

  • Lauryn Johnson

    Perfect to redo my hope chest!! Home Office Organizing Tips and DIY Projects-Hide your filing cabinet inside a chest when not in use by creating a Mini Office in a Chest. it can also double as extra seating by throwing a few throw pillows on top. The inside of the chest drawer doubles as a cork board for pinning important notices.

Painted filing cabinet- such a good idea, I have seen these all over in ugly colors, would be a good thing for storage in scrabook area

DIY Mini Office in a Chest. File cabinets are ugly. They're big, bulky and metal. Yuck. Great for storage and I love the cork board in the lid idea.

For the home office. Organized storage made pretty and double use for sitting.

I got a dingy old filing cabnit that is due for a make-over.... probably wont go blue because it wont match the decor

Vintage Filing Cabinet - Great color. Would love this for some extra storage and organization.

Great idea for turning a bland file cabinet into a useful and eye-catching part of your decor! DIY using primer/spray paint combo by Krylon and sanding first. Lines were hand drawn with a paint marker. I would make my lines a little cleaner and use an acrylic paint for easy "oops" cleanup! The lines are a must however, without the pin striping this would look like a big, blue monstrosity!

"I love cobalt blue, and I think blueprints are so cool! I am not brave enough to paint a room this color (yet), so I started small, with my file cabinet."

A window seat (or a vintage trunk) can stand in for a file cabinet when fitted with freestanding hanging-file-folder racks, available in various widths to suit any size storage space. To prevent straining and twisting your back while accessing files, install them in rows that face the center of the room.

file cabinet desk - going to do this with my newly emptied filing cabinets to make Lily a craft desk!
