Spice Up Your Office Space

paper decorated file cabinetI am turning my office space at home into a "creativity room" so I wanted to spice up the filing cabinet. I added some left over wrapping paper to the top and front and livened it up!


Total Time: 10 minutes



  1. I just measured the top and decided where I wanted to place some of the paper along the front of the drawers. You can choose to cover the entire drawer if you'd like!
  2. I sprayed the cabinet lightly, then the back of the paper lightly and let both dry. Then I carefully lined up the paper to the drawer.
  3. The great thing about spray adhesive is that it is rubber cement based so it can probably be repositioned if needed. I know I did it and it worked. I also think it also won't ruin the cabinet finish, so it can be used for a work cabinet.
  4. The fun part is that you can easily change it for the seasons or holidays too! Just use a different print. Fun

This is a really cute idea, I'll have to try and do this to my husbands big file cabinet when he's not looking.:)

You could use masculine paper with fish, woodland scenes, favorite sports teams, even some graphics from his profession! Heck, one can even print some favorite family photo's onto copy paper!


He'll love it!:-)

Thank you for sharing this wonderful idea. I, to think that my office space is so boring but you just gave me a great idea for livening up this part of my office. Can't wait to give it some jazz.
