DIY Filing Cabinet Makeover

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!


  1. Oh wow...I didn't know youat could modge podge (not sure if I spelled that right) onto metal! I am definitely going to try that.

  2. In fact, the job involving shop fitting begins by laying out proper design preparation. Prior to the task handled by shopfitters in Sydney, take help of designers who will evaluate the entire space available with you and check your requirements.

  3. Thanks for your post. I’ve been thinking about writing a very comparable post over the last couple of weeks, I’ll probably keep it short and sweet and link to this instead if thats cool. Thanks. citycabinetcenter.com
