File Cabinet Makeover

Give a fresh breath to your cabinet!
Although we don’t buy new furniture every year we can’t forget we can moderate it any time we get bored with the colour or when the style has come out of fashion. Restoring has become a common thing now, if fond of old styles, we can even change our shabby pieces into Sleek Antique.

Today, I’d like to show you something completely different. Haeley of Design Improvised has shared File Cabinet Makeover which can add some drama to your study. By contrasting black chalkboard paint with light-pink accents she gave a perfect facelift to her old wasted cabinet. This revamp was a low-cost version so anyone can afford it.

I hope you’ll find inspiration, learn this technique and invest some time to have a renovated piece of furniture. We hope to see the photos!
