Vintage Industrial Shelving Re purposed

I know its not much.

Just paint. Red paint. But I’m really liking how this vintage industrial shelving file cabinet turned out. Here is my process.

1. Hose down dusty and dirty and HEAVY vintage industrial file cabinet in yard.

2. Fleeting thought goes through my head—sunscreen. Too late. I’m engrossed in project.

3. Scrape off nasty 50 year old tape.

4. Ruining fingernails. Put on pink dish washing gloves. Good look.

5. Spray paint drawers with Red Rustoleum which includes surrounding grass despite newspaper coverage.

6. Let drawers dry BEFORE inserting them back into file cabinet.

7. Admire my work and ask anyone unfortunate to walk by my house to also admire my handiwork.

8. All pieces sold within days!

9. Lastly and waaaay off topic but I usually digress. I buy all my ‘fix it’ stuff at my local Ace Hardware in Burien. Maybe I pay a bit more but I don’t care because they are the best helpers ever AND they have a Pepsi soda machine where I can get free Pepsi’s while I peruse but wait there’s more! They carry Mountain Bars. My all time favorite candy bar from long ago. Ok That’s it but it’s good huh?
