Last summer, I spent a lot of time in my classroom, making it pretty for September. One of my biggest projects was doing something with these old, gross looking filing cabinets. For the first one, I sanded it down a little, then wiped it down with rubbing alcohol. I spray painted it and applied vinyl appliques. I also have those appliques on my cabinets.
For this second filing cabinet, I used trusty Mod Podged and glued on some scrapbooking paper. So far, everything is holding up great. This is where I keep everything that I sell in my Mathis Store!
