When we moved the "office" into a computer armorie in the Living Room we needed a place for all of our files. The cheap whitewashed press board desk we had, had lots of storage and was located in our bedroom...yuck! It didn't fit well with the decor in there as you can imagine and who wants their "home office" in their bedroom?. It was a workhorse for sure but so ugly. So we got rid of it, but then we needed a place for all those files, you know all the bank statements, pay check stubs etc. So I thought what if we put the files in baskets. First...I was thinking old locker baskets but maybe that would look too cluttered. Second,I thought maybe one of my unused Longaberger baskets. Maybe the Picnic one (as seen under the table) would work perfect or even the Newspaper Basket. I'm contemplating using two Newspaper Baskets to hold all the files or maybe two Picnic Baskets. The jury is still out on that one.
I got it off of Craig's List..for $40.00, I thought that was a good deal. Now I need your help....I would like to paint just the legs either a robins egg blue or creamy white. It sits near my dining room table which has white legs and a white tile top (which I will eventually change the top to a rustic plank, similar to the table shown here.)
Would love to hear what you think? Paint the legs and lower trim white, blue or leave it like it is?
