Don't resign yourself to living with an ugly metal filing cabinet in your home office. With a little money and effort, you can have a stunning Chinoiserie piece instead.
This is a marvelous Mary McDonald DIY for the Chinoiserie office. Featured in the January/February 2006 issue of Domino Magazine, interior designer Mary McDonald photocopied/enlarged Chinoiserie wallpaper and glued it to her filing cabinet. I have even found a tutorial for everyone on Pink Mohair and more tips on Style Court from Mary McDonald herself so you can do a professional job. This will work with a favorite piece of wallpaper or fabric. eBay is a great source for fabric remnants and wallpaper as well.
