File Cabinet Makeover

Monday, June 27, 2016

Hello Loves! 
Just wanted to share our little at home project we 
did of giving this file cabinet a complete makeover.

 Before moving to Florida we sold 
pretty much all of our furniture. 
The only stuff we kept was our bed, dresser set,
dining room table, my great grandmothers china cabinet 
and another smaller cabinet Matt bought me as a gift.

We profited around $850 at our yard sale
and kept that money to then replace the furniture
once we got to our new home in Florida. 

So be prepared for lots of repurpose blogs. ;) 

If there is one thing I love the most about our new
home is the garage and no need to actually use it for vehicles.

Talk about a whole place to store and complete my projects.

So let's get this show on the road. 

We picked up this tad rusty but very potential file cabinet
at a local ReStore by Habit for Humanity. 
$20 SCORE!

We started by removing all the hardware and 
using a Strip Disc attachment for cordless drill
to remove all the chipped paint and raised rust spots.

After that we washed it off with paint thinner 
and waited for it to dry. 

Then sprayed it with Appliance Epoxy in Black
all of these spray paints can be found at Walmart.

We ended up doing two coats of the black.
Three coats of the watermelon color on the hardware
and one coat of the lacquer over everything. 

Nothing too fancy pantsy just enough to make it look brand new! 

Hope you enjoyed this little transformation and would love
to see some of your very own repurpose projects!
Thank you for reading.
