When I started my business in 2004, I needed filing cabinets for my stuff, but had limited resources, so I went thrift shopping. I found these at McCart Thrift and bought all 6 of them, 3 orange ones and 3 olive green ones.
Though orange and olive are not my color themes, I saw they had great potential. I came home and spray painted one silver just to see how it would take and how it would wear. SIX YEARS later, I have finished spray painting them all!!! :) This was my project yesterday. I applied a basic matte grey primer spray paint then two coats of silver metallic spray paint. Overall, very pleased with the end result and so glad to have completed a task off my todolist!
Now don't look at the stuff around my completed project...I am still working on that! But, it will happen...I am determined to get an organized working office in place!
Why did it take me so long to complete this? I knew from the get go that I wanted them to be silver just like the locker I have, so it wasn't lack of decision over the color. What could it be other than plain PROCRASTINATION??? LOL! Oh well...I got them done and you can see the finished product.
Oh, and can you see something else that is changed in the room??? I will give you a hint, its not the picture above the fax/scanner/copier...but its close. :)
Tell me what you think!
