File Cabinet Revamp: Snazzy Sister State Storage

I went and did it AGAIN! Remember my awesome yellow and green file cabinet revamp last month? Well I got such an overwhelming response that I knew I just had to do it again. So the other day I picked up 2 free file cabinets from Democracy for America, they are moving to a new office in Burlington, VT so they were getting rid of some old office supplies.


I took out the drawers and spray painted the cabinets a light blue. Then I removed the hardware from the drawers and carefully cut up 2 maps of the sister states: Vermont and New Hampshire! Then I decoupaged the maps onto the drawers and put them back into the painted cabinet shells. Voila! Your fancy sister state file cabinets are complete!

  1. These look so great! What a terrific idea. I'm about to go scoping out some file cabinets because we could use some adorable storage like that! What kind of spraypaint do you use? Do you scuff up the cabinets or anything beforehand?

    1. I just wiped them down with a damp rag. Don't try to sand them, it will just leave scratches. And I used Rust-Oleum spray paint, but any kind will do! Good luck and let me know when you've completed your DIY project, I'd love to see and share on my blog :)

      Panel Çit ve Tel Çit, Tel Örgü citbu.com'da
      Panel çitler ilk etapta tel örgü sistemi içerisinde düşünülerek güvenlik amacıyla tercih edilmektedir. Özellikle de büyük şehirlerde bahçeye sahip olan kişilerin bahçe etraflarını Çit ile kaplatarak dışarıdan yabancı kişilere girişi engellemesi gerekmektedir. Sadece yabancı kişilere karşı değil kedi, köpek gibi hayvanların girişini de kapatarak bu alanı koruması gereken kişiler böylelikle daha rahat edecek olup kendilerini de koruma altına alacaklardır.
      Tel örgüler daha çok güvenliğin sağlanması adına kullanılmaktadır. İç tarafı dış etkenlerden korumak amacıyla tercih edilen tel örgüler bu sayede daha çok alana yayılmakta ve çok fazla alanda tercih edilmektedir. Sizler de tel örgüleri kendinize ait olan tarla, bahçe, garaj, park gibi alanların çevrelerine inşa ederek rahatlıkla kullanabilir, uzun ömürlü olarak kullanma imkanına sahip olup yapılarınızı en iyi şekilde dış etkenlere karşı dirençli tutabilirsiniz.
      Çoğu zaman çeşitli yapıların çevresine güvenlik önlemlerinin artırılması için belirli sistemler yerleştirilir. Daha güvenli yapıların olması, dışarıdan içeriye yabancı kişilerin ve hayvanların girmesini engellemek amacıyla tel örgü sistemleri içerisinde yer alan jiletli tel tercih edilebilr. Jiletli tel en çok talep edilen yüksek güvenlik önlemleri arasında yer almaktadır. Dikenli tellerin çok yeterli olmadını ya da daha tehlikeli bölgelere daha güvenli tellerin çevrilmesi amacıyla jiletli tellere her zaman için ihtiyaç duyulmaktadır. citbu.com
