File Cabinet Re-purpose Into a Mock Printer's Cabinet for Storage


Found this Pottery Barn file cabinet on Craig's List for $100. I have no use for another file cabinet, but did need a storage cabinet for my dining area for linens, serving pieces, etc., but couldn't fit anything too large, and the plain white didn't suit me. I'm replacing the mid-century entertainment center in the back of the room (behind the table) with this piece for a pop of color. Plain old latex wall

    So the piece was actually a two drawer bureau?

      @Lynn Yes, it was a two-drawer file cabinet, and still functions as one.

    I have a pressed wood, covered with thick vinyl that is in good shape. What I said the best way to refinish the surface? Paint? What kind? Cover with contact paper?
