    What a very cool idea! Love the way you fixed the fronts of the drawers, pretty and functional.

    you could also use the file cabinets for your monthly magazines, instead of taking up space on shelves.

    Like the idea - but I have a question - in the hanging filing folders - do you have the fabrics folded or on cardboard? How does the fabric stay so straight? In a hanging folder, I would think the fabric would fall. Just curious, because I have some file drawers I can re-purpose.

    The fabrics are just folded over. I have only used it for anything from a fat quarter to 2 yards of fabric. Anything larger may not stay put quites so well. My sister cuts the cardboard out of the folder and it's just as if you folded it over a hanger.

    I use a file cabinet to file my quilt magazines. They are filed by subscription and date into magazine holers and laid into the cabinet so the spines show. Easy to find a pattern if you know the issue and magazine that put it out. (If you remember to place the issue in the cabinet after reading it when it comes.)LOL

    The cabinet is beautiful. Are those decals or did you paint that cabinet?

    Verrrry clever! I have a lot of hanging folders left and two file cabinets left over from the classroom. This will be a great use for them. And to think I was going to give them away...
