Thanks, SC, this is a great link. I didn't realize it was MM who had done that great filing cabinet in Domino a while back. I was trying to figure out a pattern to print out today so i could do the same to mine. I was thinking Russian nesting dolls. Maybe I'll put it out there on my blog and see what people come up with. Have a great holiday.

I tried to wallpaper my filing cabinet--let's just say it did not work. I cannot believe this blog--it is exactly my taste--Kate Spade, Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler et al. are my heroes!

Hi Shoshana,
Thanks for your comments. I've often wondered how many people tried that filing cabinet project :)

I think I was most impressed by Mary McDonald's work on the Luxe Hotel. It's in her portfolio on her site, go check it out.

O.K. guys I see you need some instruction on the filing cabinet thing. First of all you must get an exact size of your filing cabinet and go to kinkos on the oversize machine. It is best to flirt with someone to help you before you make 75 copies the wrong size! Start with an image similar in ratio- long and thin then you can cut the weird edges off. If you just cannot bee art school neaat about it make another different trim for the border to frame it. Use mounting spray, exacto knives nd then laquer it. You can use decoupage supplies too-very self explanatorwith directions. Try again!

Hi Meg!

I think they were custom made for the project. Probably simple white fabric with trim applied by a seamstress. If I see similar ones I'll let you know :)
