gettin crafty!

old boring filing cabinet gets a spunky make over:

1) Clean and sand if any rust or irregular surfaces
2) Remove drawer pulls w/ screwdriver
3) Give it a good coat of white primer, let dry 24 hours
4) With even strokes coat 2x with wood/metal spraypaint
5) After all surfaces have dried sufficiently screw new hardware (I picked up mine for $1.99 each)

Filing cabinet: Free from family member
Can of primer: $1.99
Can of spraypaint: $6.99
Hardware: $1.99 x 2

For about $13 got a totally new filing cabinet to brighten up the office!
