Metamorphosis Monday - My Office

Welcome to Metamorphosis Monday, hosted by Between Naps on the Porch. Please stop by and see what great ideas she has as well as find out who else is participating.

This will be my first time posting for Metamorphis Monday and I'll show you my office in progress. A few months ago, my DH and I went to a used hotel furniture store in search of a file cabinet. The file cabinet that I currently have is from K-Kmart and because I am changing everything to white and the file cabinet that we currently have is not safe - whenever we open one drawer all the way open, we have to hold on to it or it will tip over. We even had our printer on top and that didn't help not to mention that we don't have room for all the files and papers that should be filed away.




So anyway, back to the story...my DH and I, on a Sunday went looking for a file cabinet and DH thought we better check out the used hotel furniture store. Not only did we find a file cabinet, we also found a nice lamp for the room.(Another post)

The file cabinet has been sitting in the garage waiting for a warm Saturday so that I could spray paint it - and Saturday - it was warm enough. I also spray painted some other items..

Here's the before...






During...






After...

I really like it, it's a very heavy metal file cabinet with nice deep drawers...




I bought these matching hanging files and interior hanging files at The Container Store in January...I'm ready to get going now and get things more organized..



Now I can get going on my office and straighten things up..more pictures next Monday...

I have that same wobbly wooden cabinet! Yikes! I now have a minimum amount of files in there and have been switching over to steel cabinets. Maybe mine could be a Met Monday post one of these weeks.

It does feel good to organize and you did a great job.

Good job so far! Now on to the organizing. I keep trying to do that and don't seem to make headway. I notice from your blinkies that you are a Debbie Macomber fan. So am I. I save all of her books. Can't wait for the next one in the Cedar Cove series to come out.

Hi terry, thank you for stopping by my blog. You asked where i find my deals. I find them just about everywhere, Im in Canada, so it could be Walmart, Homesense, Winners, Bouclairs, and these little white birds came from Michaels at 40% off.
