Gone Junkin': Filing Cabinet


As you know, we have recently moved. When you move, especially into a bigger place, you discover things you need. For example, I had tons of built-ins in my last house, so I need things like bookcases and a media center. I had a filing cabinet but it had broke, so I didn't move it and I needed a new one. I always try to check out places like the Salvation Army or Goodwill for furniture. Usually you can find cheap furniture that just needs some TLC.

I found this filing cabinet at Goodwill for $4.00. It was a dull blue color with a bit of rust and dings. I couldn't do much for the dings, but I sanded out the rust and spray painted the entire cabinet brown. I think the brown is nice, however our current rental has brown walls, so I kind think I should have gone for it and done a fun color. Ah. Oh well. It will be a nice neutral color when we move in four years.
