The Earth 911 blog has a nice quick piece on cool ways to upcycle filing cabinets. They actually refer to a decor blogger (House Revivals) that has the original piece and in it she discusses over five ways to re use an older or used filing cabinet.
We love her ideas, especially the one about making a kitchen island from a filing cabinet. It looks simple enough and depending on the color scheme you choose, can look awfully cute too. The one pictured on her blog is yellow, sure to brighten up any kitchen.
If you click the links on any of the ideas, it will direct you to the DIY project to try it on your own.
