This personalised metal filing cabinet has been painted, stencilled and distressed and would make a stunning addition to any home.
I used to have endless boxes of paperwork which would take up valuable space and prove impractical when trying to find a document. My paperwork, sectioned into receipts, bills, contacts, warranties, banking, local activities etc. is now well organised and easy to find in one beautiful cabinet. You'll wonder how you ever lived without it.
Traditionally not the most attractive of things, my work transforms them into pieces of beauty! A filing cabinet is invaluable in a busy household and essential for any business, so what better than to combine functionality with style?! The cabinet is painted, stencilled with the flower motif and wording of your choice and crackled and waxed to give it a wonderfully aged look. The imperfect silver leaf handles add to the vintage style.
The phrase on the cabinet pictured reads 'Today is good and tomorrow will be even better' but you may wish to chose 'Who says a cabinet can't be beautiful?!' 'All the works of love are works of peace' 'Katie Milligan loves organised' or any wording meaningful to you.
Not only useful for files, they also provide fabulous storage for photos, magazines, toys and so on. This up-cycled cabinet, perfect for group-gifting, would make a very welcome and much-loved gift and a great way of congratulating a friend/ relative on a new job or business venture.
The colours featured include a light grey surround and antique white drawers with beige lettering. Greyish lilac with navy, turquoise with grey and antique white with black is also available. If you have a specific colour combination in mind, please get in touch as it's very likely I can accommodate your wishes. You may also chose from italic style lower case text or upright capital letters.
Your cabinet will be hand-painted and waxed, giving it a soft finish and making each one unique. Only excellent quality second-hand filing cabinets are up-cycled and any imperfections only enhance their character. As these are old pieces, most are sold without a key. Please note, I tend to up-cycle cabinets without handles at the moment, as in the main image. Also the position/ type of handle may vary. Please also note that delivery costs are high on such a heavy item requiring a two man team. In the unlikely event that the distance from collection is so great the costs are unmanageable, I may be unable to accept the order.
