Repurposing With A Purpose

Pretty in Pink

imageI found this lovely shabby pink file cabinet at a local estate sale. It screamed “take me home”, so I did. Feeling like some pink needed to be added to my booth for spring, this piece fit the bill. I wanted to add some shiney gold to give it a little something special.

So I got out some basic gold metallic paint and some butterfly stencils and got to work. I did prep the metal cabinet with a bit of light sanding, then laid my stencil in a fun pattern all over. Got out the sponge brush and got busy with it.

I applied the stencil on top, the sides and the front.  Once the paint was dry. I sealed the cabinet with clear acrylic spray sealer.

TADA!! I think the cabinet turned out pretty good. A fun piece that would look great in any room of the home.
