When file cabinets come to mind you often think boring, boring, boring. They’re that awful, muted, beige that goes with nothing. Enter Efex to take your style up a notch…


Our first inspiration comes from Pinterest, and shows how you can just add bows to the file cabinets to instantly add style. This set from Bella Decor retails for $1,095. To get this look just add our bows, paint white, and wow!

We recommend B 1, B 7, or B 21. Use four of one style and you have instant shabby chic file cabinets. If you have room you can also add your favorite swag to the top and bottom.

Luxe for Less, plain and simple.


Imagine a glass top over these two and you have a fun desk. If you started with file cabinets that were in good shape, like these from Pottery Barn’s Bedford Collection (which sell for $400 each), you could gild the bows and skip the painting step.


Should we try this in our office? It has an old Pottery Barn desk in need of style!


Another great idea this one from Home Talk, and shows a file cabinet going glam with gold paint.

But hey, you can get this look with 3 frames, F 19.


Just apply and paint gold, or use gilding wax. Bingo! You have instant file storage glam.

This sample board shows what these frames would look like on a dresser. Why not try navy blue if gold isn’t your style?
