Furniture Friday - File Cabinet Redo

File Cabinet makeover

I love a bit of Sidewalk treasure hunting and this piece was just that

It was out by the side of the road waiting to be dumped

I screeched to a halt and ran out and threw it in the back of my vehicle

I had no idea what state it would be in, but it was perfect, not solid wood or anything fancy but it was still functional and usable

Now to work on making it glamorous

I painted it with some homemade chalk paint and stenciled the front

I painted the hardware and it was all shiny and new again

Isn't it way better?

I think so

  1. So cute! I recently painted our hideous filing cabinet too. Yours is way cuter though! Saw your link at Sugar Bee

  2. What a find! I need to get a filing cabinet but have been dreading just how blah they can be, but you made yours into a piece of furniture, not just something that is practical. I'm now inspired! Love it!


I love comments, big and small, so go on, leave me some, you know you want to
