Come and visit Janet Deg Twitter for some inspiration. She was sharing this whimsical Filing Cabinet Planter. Just find yourself a Filing Cabinet…paint it with a Rustoleum paint in your favorite color…then plant your favorite blooms. There are a few ways of doing it…I would highly recommend drilling drain holes at the bottom of each drawer…they you can place potted plants in the drawers or literally fill the drawers with soil and plant. Either way it is going to look WOW in your garden…or on your deck or porch! To be honest with you…I think it would be incredible in the kitchen with Fresh Herbs! Oh the possibilities. Chalkboard labels would look great too. Have fun.
This Pin caught my eye and thought I should share it with you. You can take a Filing Cabinet…remove the drawers (use them for another project) …paint it in the color that you love…drill holes for drainage…attach Caster Wheels and plant. You have a great planter for the Front Porch…Deck or Garden. Once again I highly recommend you use a Rustoleum Type Paint to keep it safe from peeling. Possibilities are endless…you might want to add some embellishments or maybe some unique hardware. Enjoy!
Here’s another cool way to make a desk with a Filing Cabinet. Drop by Refashionably Late and get the DIY! Think of all the designs you can apply to the drawers!!! It would be great for a kids room too.
Apartment Therapy is featuring a Filing Cabinet that is not only a planter…but an Address #Sign too. Pretty Clever…so many possibilities.
Buzzfeed says to empty out those drawers…paint it cool and then use it to organize the Garage! Don’t forget to add pegboard to the sides of this container…add hooks and organize the garden tools and more.
Come and see how Bliss Ranch Transformed this Filing Cabinet into a complete Message Center! Come and see how!
If you are lucky enough to snatch up an vintage style filing cabinet that is missing pieces…take some drawers and use them as storage or a base of a Farmhouse Vignette! Regular Filing Cabinet Drawers also are great on a shelf holding books and you can label what is inside on the front label holder. Thank you Green Co Services for the inspiration.
