After compiling a small collage of red office accents that would look really cute on my desk at work, but some of which was pricier than I would ever spring for, I came across a great little knock-off version of the accordion file collator. Target’s Room Essentials brand is carrying one very similar but in a dull gray color for only $10.99.
I think it is only half the size of the collator from Anthropologie that was my inspiration, but that doesn’t bother me. I took it home and coated it with a few layers of red spray paint. Now it is in my office at work with the other red accessories I’ve collected over time.
