(Yes, that's bird poop on the top drawer...just keepin' it real and rustic with y'all)
I decided on a bright green for the paint job, mainly because it's what stood out to me in the spray paint aisle, and I (sadly) have too much yellow going on in my office at the time to justify another yellow object.
After some cleaning, light sanding, dusting, and painting (2 coats). This is what she looks like now...drumroll, please.
Not bad for looking rather similar to this $200 Bisley two-drawer file cabinet from the Container Store...
Score! I only bought spray paint - less than $10 for 2 cans. I'm patting myself on the back right now.
It's also great to know that if I ever tire of the jolly green-ness of the cabinet, I can simply paint it another color with not a single "but this was so expensive..." regret. What do you think of her?
