Old Filing Cabinet Makeover!
Wait until you see how we turned this old, date filing cabinet into a rustic chic piece of office furniture!
When beginning to decorate and organize the office, I knew one thing was for sure, we needed storage space! My husband said he wanted to put our filing cabinet up there. I looked at him like huh? No way! Our filing cabinet was old, beat up and hideous to say the least! Then it hit him, he threw at me a simple and FREE solution!
Pallets! If you know us, you know we are big wood fans! We love incorporating wood pieces throughout our home! And when it comes to pallets, we typically get them for free, so what could be better? Using liquid nails adhesive glue, he attached the cut pieces of wood to the cabinet and held them into place using large clamps. Continue for each side, letting each dry completely.
I grabbed two cup pulls we already had, roughed them up with a low grit sandpaper, painted them gold and sealed them with a satin finish. I really like the looks they add to the rustic pallets. While we were at it, we took 4 caster wheels we already had and attached them to the bottom for move-ability! In literally just a few steps and NO COST to us, we had ourselves a fun, rustic chic piece of furniture! So, what do you think?
