1 - used, free 3-drawer lateral ugly beige filing cabinet, 3 - swatches fabric that match at least one of the new colors you are painting the filing cabinet, 2-3 cans acrylic-type spray paint with the paint color on the lid (I used lime green), med. sand paper/block for sanding, drill with a couple size steel bits for attaching 4 - swivel wheels (2.5" - 3") purchased at hardware store for bottom of file cabinet, 16 bolts & nuts for wheels, 3 - drawer pulls of your choice, spray adhesive for fabric, clothing iron, scissors, pencil & ruler for measuring/cutting fabric. Make sure you also have a helping hand or two and a small platform with wheels/dolly to set the file cabinet on. You will also need a garage or outdoor space to allow for work on the project. Perhaps even a nose/face mask if you don't need the dust in your nose. Make sure you use 2 - 3 coats of paint and let it dry thoroughly between coats!
What was your inspiration?
I'm a multi-media artist constantly re-designing my studio and office space! I would never find some thing this unique in my price range, so I decided to make one along with my fabulous daughter and son to help!
