DIY: Ikea File Revamp


I have been needing a new way to organize the junk on my desk so I picked these file boxes up from Ikea. My whole room is filled with gold furniture/gold accessories so I knew I needed to do a little DIYing to fix these babies up. 

You'll need: 
-Gold paint ( I used Martha Stewart in the color gold here)
*use your Michael's app coupons*
-Bowl for paint
-Sponge brush (from Michael's craft store for $0.49)
*use your Michael's app coupons*
-Gold permanent marker (here)
-File Boxes/Dividers  (here)
-Labels for the files 

Total: $12.49

Get the font I used (here)





-Print out the labels and cut to size 


-Put you first coat on and let it dry for about 10 minutes, apply the second coat and your good to go. 


-go crazy with the dots!








 I thought I would share how I decided to organize my receipts in the receipt file box...I bought these clear envelope organizers from staples for $2 each. I used washi tape on the outside so I could change them around if I needed to....and that's it...place them inside your receipt file box and you'll never loose a receipt again!
