DIY File Cabinet Desk

I'm here for another round of The Home Depot Gift Challenge! I'm really enjoying teaming up with some of these amazing ladies and really getting my creative juices rolling! In this challenge (if you are new here) we are to take one item from The Home Depot and create something with that item. We are not sponsored by Home Depot; we just love their products and visit them frequently! This month's challenge was all about furniture legs.
Onto the are the items that you will need to complete this project:

2 furniture legs

file cabinet

wrapping paper

mod podge

wood for desktop

spray paint

gorilla glue
First I used mod podge to adhere the cut to size decorative wrapping paper to the front of the drawers. I removed the handles and spray painted them gold. I then spray painted everything except the top of the file cabinet as I wanted the glue to adhere nicely to the top of the cabinet.
The next step was to cut the legs to size. The legs I bought were too tall for the height of the file cabinet.
For the full tutorial please head on over to my blog! I love how it compliments my craft closet and guest room! I can't wait to do my first craft on it!

    I have thought about a similar project using two cabinets? Is there any specific reason you decided on legs ?

    Do you use a spray gun?

    What type of wood did you use for the top? I like the smoothness of it. Is it sturdy enough for a computer?
