IF THERE EVER WAS A "RUST BUCKET", THIS WAS IT! A FILING CABINET SAVED WITH SOME PAINT TREATMENTS

Hi there and welcome to Sweet tea N' Salty Air! I sure had my work cut out for me yesterday. I rescued this very rusty filing cabinet and had to do allot of sanding. I guess I would be the only one crazy enough to deal with this item. What I liked about this piece is that it is super lightweight and the interior of the drawers were in A-1 condition!  I used Olympic One from Lowes, paint and primer in one. After sanding I treated it with Rust Lock.


OOOOCH!!!! 




The entire piece was painted with a very light grey, once dried I used a wood grain rocker. The process was painting the entire front, I used white, then take the rocker and just glide it from top to bottom. You must work quickly before the paint dries. I did just the fronts of the drawers to give it some look of texture.









I came across these cute little chalk labels sold at Pottery Barn. They serve a purpose are cute as well!
I numbered the drawers and now it's ready to use! I never underestimate the power of paint and the proof is right here with this former "Rust Bucket".



Thank you so much for visiting today!
