Last week, I picked up a filing cabinet at a business that was closing down. All of the other cabinets the same size were $75, but the one I chose was only $25. The lock is missing, a drawer slides came unwelded, there was some rust, but it just screamed “PROJECT” to me, so I grabbed it and ran.
This is the sad filing cabinet, before it got some style:
Add some fabric, Mod Podge, knobs, etc and this is the result:
I may add some ribbon details, but I haven’t decided quite yet. I did learn one important thing when taking on a project like this one – SAND OR SEAL ANY RUST! Don’t ask how I know this, but it might play into why I may or may not add ribbon trim. ;)
Until next time!
