Here are 2 such freebies that found a new home in my craft room.
An office employee mail slot...
and an old dental cabinet...
My sister gave this employee mail slot cabinet to me when she closed her office down. I wanted to paint it, but thought once I fill it up and put stuff on top you won't see it...besides, I hate painting!!
I did clean it up and had to remove all the name sticker on each mail slot.
I love Goof Off for anything sticky. Worked great!!
The cabinet now sits behind my cutting table and is filled with all kinds of paper, file folders, card stock, clear page protectors etc.
The top is the perfect size for my Go Daddy quilt cutter.
I also found wall mount letter files in a thrift store.
Great for the Go Daddy templates on one side...
and mailing supplies on the other.
The second "freebie" is an old dental cabinet my boss gave me. I am a dental hygienist, so this one is my favorite. He bought a second practice that had older equipment. He threw everything out and started new, but I rescued this cabinet.
I cleaned it up and sterilized the whole thing. I just love all the smaller individual draws.
Perfect for a stationary file...cards, note cards, stationary etc.
Now, when the family is looking for a special occasion card, it's right there were they can find it.
Organizing and a piece of my profession all in one!!
Remember, when you are out thrifting or yard sailing, don't pass things by.
Look twice at something and think...
- size (if it will fit in your space)
Things can always be cleaned up, fixed and painted, so don't let a good thing pass you by.
Have a great day,
