Here is my very first post for Monday Made It! I am so excited. I saw this filing cabinet project on pinterest a while back and knew I had to make something like this for my classroom!

Samm Spangler from Little House in the Big D is where I got my inspiration for this adorable filing cabinet. Here is hers:


And here is my new and improved filing cabinet. I am in LOVE!






Before

Coat of Paint - I used Valspar spray paint, gloss finish



I took off all the hardware and decoupaged scrapbook paper to the front of the drawers.


Make sure you pay attention when you take the drawer lock off. Thankfully my hubby is very smart when it comes to how things work, or I might not have been able to get it all back together.


Can't wait to start using this! I was also inspired to make the front of my desk match my filing cabinet. No picture yet :( Wasn't thinking when I finished. I'll try to get one this week sometime.

  2. Thanks! It was lots of work. I realized that I do not like spray painting and I'm not very good at it. Next time I will buy one of those spray handle attachments to help me.
