I’m all about bringing out of the box ideas to fruition, on the cheap!
My most recent attempt at this came in the form of old run of the mill file cabinet that had been sitting in my hall closet, for um, ever! At least 6 years, I kid you not. Worst of all it was empty! Sadly I stacked stuff on top, but kept nothing in it. Not practical or smart considering that my son’s video games were in desperate need of a home.
If you’ve visited Chase the Star at anytime, you’ll know I’m not one to leave well enough alone, like ever. A black metal file cabinet would’ve fit in the playroom just fine. But ‘just fine’ ain’t gonna cut it!
Take a look at what he looked like before:
I don’t have too much experience working with metals so this was a new endeavor for me. However, I knew that I wanted blue and I wanted chevron, and that would be easy with a couple of cans of spray paint and a lot of patience!
Luckily I had all of the materials I needed, just had to pick up a can of Rustoleum Ultra Cover in Lagoon and a skinny vanilla iced latte from Starbucks to get started.
