When I think of filing cabinets, I think of the lifeless version on the left. I picked up two filing cabinets for a great deal on Craigslist with a plan to make them go from depressed to distressed!!!
- First, I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.
- Next, I added some cocoa colored paint that I mixed from paint samples.
- Then, I traced the edges of the cabinet to make it appear like the white paint had worn down.
- Finally, I did a coat of clear wax, followed by the dark wax.
I am so PUMPED at how this is turning out. I used to be in love with offices from a certain upscale catalogue. I'm totally glad that was never in the budget! I love this custom look a whole lot more.
Have you been making over any furniture lately?
