Designer？Tobias Wong‘；s inspired mattress on pushed-together 2-drawer lateral files first got us thinking about using file cabinets as bed platforms. Such a good idea in this time of small spaces： ample storage that attenuates the visual massiveness of flat files. Then we saw stylist？Lotta Agaton’；s day bed made with？classic white flat files. It shows just just how sleek and stylish this very practical idea can be， as do these…；accent pillow case baby burlap
Flat files come in a variety of sizes and heights， the classic being 42 x 30 inches， 36 x 24 inches and 48 x 36 inches. Generally， they are lowish —about 5 or 6 drawersaccent pillow case baby boudoir， about 24 inches high， so make for excellent bed base possibilities. Flat-files size and orientation might need an additional frame or support， as？Greg and Grey， owners of Portland， Oregon shop Antler &； Co？did in the bed above： file cabinets at the foot of the bed form an extension to a custom-built wooden frame.
The formula is pretty simple： the flat file base is topped with a foam mattress， either a standard or custom size depending on your base configuration. We’；re fans of Dixie Foam， where we’；ve bought a number of durable， comfortable mattresses over the years.

We almost (almost!) feel guilty unwrapping these little bundles of joy, and it’s twice as heartbreaking to discard all the gorgeousness afterward. So that got us thinking: what can we make out of all that leftover wrapping paper? We scoured the Web for the best crafts and decorating ideas made from gift wrap. Which ones will you be trying this weekend?
