Not Your Boring File Cabinet Anymore!!


My client founded this piece at a garage sale for $10!!! It was a steal!!
She brought it to me to make it the focal point for her office..
And this is how it was done!
not your boring file cabinet anymore, painted furniture
First I cleaned and saded a litle the rusted areas.. (Cool look by the way)

After cleaned and sanded I applied two cans of the Rustoleoum anti-rust spray in brown color..
I let it dry for 12 hours to start painting on it..

With the help of I could used about 5 different colors to achieve this finish..
Dark gray
Light gray
Dark brown
Taupe
Copper

Orange
Black
White
With this natural stain I was able to add drama making it look like rusted and old.
