File Cabinet Re-do

My husband has changed jobs and now does not have an office.  He still travels but will be working from home when he is in town.  Working on the dining room table wasn't going to work so we had to re-arrange the house a little.  We decided to move the his office into the mater bedroom.  Of course, I still wanted it to look nice.  I got a great desk on craigslist and painted it (post coming soon) and then I wanted to spruce up the file cabinet.  I love how it turned out.

Contact Paper Filing Cabinet
I first covered the file cabinet with silver contact paper that I got from Lowe's.  It was very easy to cover and that alone looked great.  Then I wanted to add some blue to tie into the desk and walls.  I ordered these great decals from La Leni shop on Etsy.  I have a machine that I could of done this myself but sometimes it is just easier to buy it ;-)

I love being featured. Thank you!!  Check out these awesome blogs that featured my file cabinet.
