Filing Cabinets – not just for accountants!

My dad is a chartered accountant & owns his own practice. I can remember spending many a school holidays, earning my pocket money by filing away tax returns for all my dads clients.

It was a mindless task and to keep myself engaged – I would create ‘games’ for myself – I would time myself on how quickly i could locate a client file…or try and guess the next initial of the next file. Despite my fingers stained with black ink, I would smile proudly knowing that I had earnt myself a enough money to purchase a new subscription to TV Hits or a CD Single of Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart will Go on”….oh! the days of filing.

Not in my wildest dreams did I think that one day I would be day dreaming about the beauty of filing cabinets.

With industrial chic increasingly becoming  more and more popular in interior styles, these old vintage cabinets are becoming more valuable.

I think they are gorgeous – not only are they functional, but they hold a sentimental meaning for me.

Check out these beauties…

    filing cabinets that are made from solid steel are the best in my opinion because they last very long and they provide more security compared to wooden filing cabinets. *.`.;

    Thanks again
