In my craftroom is this awesome filing cabinent that I got for… FREE!
We are not exactly sure how old it REALLY is, but if we HAD to guess it would be at least 60 years old! We found some very old photographs in it and some old catalogs from the 50′s!
It was SUPER ugly when we got it and SUPER heavy (thank goodness the hubs has big muscles!)!
I was drawn to the character this filing cabinent had and knew with a little TLC it could become a fantastic piece for my craftroom!
I began by wiping it down really well and making sure it was completely dry.
Then I got out the Kilz!
I started painting, painting and painting!
Then I got out my trusty old sand paper and roughed the edges of the cabinent up a little bit!
YES, you can sand metal!
I used my trusty old Silhouette and cut out labels for the outside of the drawers:
Now I have some seriously AWESOME storage!
Just because something is “old” doesn’t mean it can’t be “new” again!
What have you revamped lately?!
