Blue File Cabinet

Heather from Dollar Store Crafts knows the secret to snagging free stuff from Craigslist and scurried on over to claim this old file cabinet. Beige and boring it was but completely functional. It was such an eyesore that it sat in Heather’s garage for years awaiting a makeover.


Enter a can of bold blue spray paint and a white paint pen, and the cabinet was transformed into one of the most stylin’ pieces in Heather’s home. I love the cool blueprint look that inspired Heather. Those little white lines add lots of interest to the cabinet that now serves as Heather’s new nightstand.


Head on over to Dollar Store Crafts for the tutorial.


  1. AWESOME! Love the bold blue, and the white pen just sets it off so well. And really practical to use it as a night stand. Great idea!

  2. Thanks for featuring my file cabinet – it is definitely my favorite piece of furniture now!

  3. This is so cute!!! It looks like a cartoon drawing, but the real thing. Too clever.

  4. That is totally cool. Love the blue as it’s my favorite shade field. The loose lines make it appear like a cartoon. Super upcycling!
