Cheap & Easy File Cabinet Makeover!

Hello my Sunshines! Today I am showing you all how I gave my super cheap old rusty file cabinet a makeover!! I found this filing cabinet SUPER dirt cheap at a thrift store, like $3 cheap! I know right I practically stole it from them! All it took for me to do this makeover was a Stencil from Walmart which was about $4, some white acrylic paint, and some light pink spray paint, about 3 cans if ya want me to be real with ya! It took alot to cover the rust! Also an electric sander or some sand paper!

LETS DO IT!

1. So I took this old rusty file cabinet and I sanded it down with my electric sander to get it smooth. I didnt want all the rust spots to show through the paint so I made sure to take extra time to get this sanding done!

2. Then I coated it with multiple and I mean MULTIPLE coats of spray paint! I went with light pink, not sure why, but I did!

3. I painted the handles with white acrylic paint just so they kind of pop!

4. Finally I took my stencil that I got at Walmart and used White acrylic paint to stencil just the drawers! I wanted just the drawers stenciled so It would stick out compared to the rest of the cabinet!

 

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE how awesome this turned out and it is perfect to help me get organized for the new year!

So moral of the story is:  If ya see a cheap old junky file cabinet at a thrift store or yard sale, don’t pass it up!! It has the potential to be BEAUTIFUL!
