I originally posted about this flat file cabinet here. The E-One Treasure
This cabinet was ugly and rusty.
Ok. That’s not nice.
I often feel ugly and after working too hard the day before, I feel a little rusty too.
She’s a beauty just waiting for a make-over.
Here are my inspiration pictures.
We can do this!!!
All the pieces were disassembled and pulled out into the yard. Hardware was removed and prepared to paint.
My spider fearing friends need to look away NOW.
This baby was hiding in the cabinet. Goodness knows how long it’s been growing in there cause he was HUGE!!!!
You would think sanding metal wouldn’t be so gross.
It was gross.
Each drawer had to be prepared and painted separately. There were 5 drawers and the shell. Carport renovation has things a little higely pigely so finding a place to work can be challenging.
The hardware was in great shape so I just gave it a spray paint face lift.
Only one thing was a challenge.
A missing wheel.
A wheel that the drawer slides in on.
Here is where ingenuity and imagination comes in.
Dad? I need a wheel for the file cabinet. One is missing and I have no idea where it is.
He says “well I saw it but I have no idea where it is.”
Enter an old table leg and a saw.
I feel a little like Fred Flintstone.
