Trash to Treasure Part 2...

Remember a few weeks ago when I shared the paper trays that I found at work?  Well, guess what?  I found something else at work that was begging for an update.  This time it was a metal file divider with the same vinyl wood grain as the paper trays.

Here's what I had to work with.

Just like before, I peeled off the vinyl wood grain sticker and used it as a template for the new scrapbook paper.  Since I plan on using both the paper tray and file divider on my desk at work I wanted them to match.  Luckily, I had another sheet of the same scrapbook paper that I used on the trays.  

First I attached the scrapbook paper to the file divider using Mod Podge.  Then I printed out letters to spell "FILE", cut them out, traced them onto gold paper and attached them to the front of the divider.

As a reminder, here's the first trash to treasure.

I love when I find something that can be updated and look awesome for FREE!  I have both the paper tray and file divider at work and I love how fun they make my desk.
