    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...

    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.

    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.

Goodbye ugly metal filing cabinet - hello filing cabinet disguised as a bench!

Office in a Trunk. If you're REALLY stuck for space, this is a neat idea. Put the chest in your living/sitting area and use the top part as a coffee table when company is over. When you need to work, open it up and reveal your desk. Organize bills, receipts, important docs... photo's.. even scrapbooking paper.
