File Cabinet Makeover

Transform an old file cabinet into chic craft supply storage with built-in calendar thanks to chalkboard paint!
The entire file cabinet was covered in a few coats of black chalkboard paint, making it a blank canvas for writing down to do's, labeling the drawers, etc.
Thick white borders and light pink hardware add a modern, feminine touch to the cabinet.
The deep drawers of a file cabinet are perfect for storing bulky craft items like yarn!
Here's the original file cabinet. I lightly sanded and cleaned with a damp cloth before applying a primer.
I used painter's tape to create the white borders. For a full step-by-step tutorial head to my blog Design Improvised!
