Now that people are going paperless, what to do with all the file cabinets? After doing this post, I am so sorry I gave my file cabinets away. Fortunately, there is enough free file cabinets on craigslist or you can pick them up cheap a garage sales.
1.) Most scrap metal dealers will take file cabinets, so at least you can can get alittle money back, probably enough to pay your gas!
2.) The easiest thing is to re-paint or modpodge them and make them into a a type of storage
3.) I love this coffee table.
4.) Use for storage
5.) This is handy; a rolling bar
6.) If it has a flat surface- it’s a countertop or table
7.) And who hasn’t done this? Love the blue
8.) What a great idea!
9.) Have kids decorate and reuse for toys and whatnot.
10.) Use as garden containers
11.) Reuse as an ottoman or make a coffee table
12.) Not quite sure what these are for, but I like them
13.) I could see this in my kitchen on a set of rollers
14.) Not big enough? Add a second
15.) And why not?
16.) Isn’t this pawsitively the cats meow?
17.) Love this, it works well for me and will consider if I take down this partial wall.
18.) Reuse as a book holder
19.) From Libraries
20.) How about a storage area for those hard to recycle items, such as printer ink, light bulbs, batteries? One little file cabinet to keep the little stuff from getting accidently-on-purpose-because-it’s too- much- of -a hassle to go to a recycler.
21.) If I had a garage, they would be great to store: computer accessories, emergency kits like first aid, candles, flashlights etc.
22.) Of course you can and should always donate or put on freecycle.com
23.) I can see using this as a drink container
