Good morning! Ready for another hot summer week? That’s all we have been having for several weeks now. Over 100 degrees every day. I think there are a few 90 degree days thrown in, just so we survive. 🙂 But I have been able to get a few projects done!
*Links are provided for your convenience.*
My first project was this file cabinet. Steve got this from his work place. They were getting new office furniture, so 2 of these were up for grabs. Haley took one for her room and I decided to make over the other one. First order of business was wiping it all down. It was pretty dirty!
After a good cleaning, I spray painted Rust-oleum primer all over the whole thing, including the handles, locks and other pieces. I decided later to switch out the handles, but it made painting a whole lot easier.
I tried out this Rust-oleum paint this time. I had never used it before, but I love this color! My only complaint, was that the spray was kind of wide and seemed to take more to cover the cabinet. I was really glad I had used Rust-oleum primer first, because I’m sure I would have had to use more. The color is amazing though!
Here are the handles I decided to use. Here are some that are similar. I bought these from HomeGoods quite awhile ago thinking I would use them in the bathroom. Unfortunately, they didn’t fit and I didn’t feel like changing the holes on the cabinets. But they worked perfect for the file cabinet! I love the look!
I already had the pretty file folders and they go perfect with the color. Here are some other pretty ones.
The dachshund pillow cover came from Amazon. I love to have little touches of doggies around!
I hope you enjoyed this makeover! I’m excited to get all my papers organized and have everything put out of sight. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
