How to give file cabinets a fast, easy and chic update

Oh hey there! Popping in very quickly to share the easiest Ikea Helmer hack ever. These file cabinets sit right outside my office in a main part of the house, so I really wanted them to look a little less utilitarian. I searched high and low for some new pulls, but unfortunately the size is really weird, and there were none to be found. (Seriously, like none.) Enter spray paint.

It's amazing how much these drawers are transformed simply by painting the hardware a soft gold/brass tone. 

So there you have it: Sometimes the easiest solution is the best solution. I'm also contemplating adding a piece of dark wood to the top to unify the two units a little more, but we'll see. Can't decide if it's worth the bother or not...
