Continuing on the planter front, how cool are these colorful porch containers? Shots of orange and yellow can be seen from the street, bound to increase curb appeal. This homeowner has many great tips, from where to find an old filing cabinet to how to get away with not having to fill the larger one with tons of dirt. My favorite touch: adding wheels.

Repurpose Your Filing Cabinet Who does not have a plain white, black or cream metal filing cabinet in their home or office? I have an ugly cream cabinet and I am looking forward to painting it this spring and jazzing it up. I have seen filing cabinets at garage sales, flea markets and even on the curb. Look at how some people have repurposed the use of a filing cabinet. So think twice before you pass one up at a sale!
I am thinking of doing something like this to my old Ikea dresser that I am too scared to move and paint in fear of it finally falling completely apart. This may be a nice "stay put" solution to do something fun to the nice ole reliable Malm.
