    DIY chest to office storage

    • 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.

      Filing cabinets are ugly and not functional I really like this idea - Mini Office in a Chest: Keep folders, supply organizers -- even a bulletin board -- right inside a chest in your bedroom.

    COOL IDEA! File cabinets can be bulky and take a lot of space. Incorporating it under a bench like this one is the best of both worlds: extra seating and extra storage! Office organizing.
