Something “New” for the Home Office

Filed under: Thrifty Finds — Laura R @ 2:59 PM

If you saw my post for the Home Goods Mom Cave contest at Centsational Girl you know that paper is a real problem for me and any sort of paper organization.

Alright,  maybe paper and a “few” other categories. 
A step in the right direction came from a Craigslist find this week.
Yes FREE – one of my favorite words.

This beautiful, functional, not even scratch and dented 4 drawer full size filing cabinet.                                                                                            And thrown in

a wonderful office or computer chair as well.

I had been looking for quite a while and had tried out some different options before I found the wonderful chair I presently use at a church sale for HALF price.
Now yesterday I was given a second one.  (Thank you!)

When I get them out of the van I will share better pictures.

  2. Free! Wow! That is a seriously great find. I see no paper clutter in your future….but I might just be all kinds of clairovoyant!

  3. Great job snagging that file cabinet! Are you going to try and cover it in some sort of contact paper? I saw one that was black and the girl put a black and white chevron print tacky paper along the sides and she left the drawer fronts black. It looked really good!

  4. Oh those are really good finds! Sometimes the best ones are the most practical, yes? And I have to say that finding a filing cabinet that’s a good one and in good shape isn’t actually very easy, at least not around here!
