home: made [ magazine files ] 

It’s great to find easy DIY projects that are both affordable but also effective. 

Transform magazine files with paper or fabric to allow them to match your interiors perfectly. 

Make your own base file from thick cardboard or head to IKEA, WHSmiths, Tiger or similar to get hold of plain files ready to cover yourself at home. 

On trend fabrics or papers with geometric, metallic or other modern pattern designs, would work perfectly but explore stores like FabricRehab for gorgeous quirky fabric designs. You could head to your local charity shop or carboot and pick up shirts, pillow cases or duvet covers to get patterned fabric cheap which you could use or if you’d rather use paper head to the highstreet for a huge array of patterned wrapping paper ideal to use for covering. We love Tiger for their cool Scandi patterned papers for £1 a roll or the every expanding stationery department at IKEA is full of great papers too at bargain prices. 

We found tutorials to help your DIY at HelloAerie and CreativeInChicago.

And when your taste or interiors change you can easily update the covering to match!
