|Cedar chest, the room isn't truly that yellow though|
Once I got the chest in place, I went to put yarn in it and immediately decided this plan would not work.
It is just one large box, so the yarn would have to live on top of itself to get it all in there. As a result, it would be impossible to sort it or to dig in and get the exact ball you want. So I think the filing cabinet may still be the solution.
