Stopped into the local Goodwill a few weekends back, and found 3 metal file folders, which were in good condition. What likely brought them to their demise is the terrible shade of hot pink and electric blue, painted over them. They also resembled high school locker doors, with 3 slits on the front, leading me to believe they were leftover from someone’s college supplies.
To give new life to these folders I spray painted them with bronzed black spray paint. Once they dried, I covered up the “locker” slats with ribbon. Perfect cheap storage solution for my home office.
