I've had this ugly filing cabinet that I store my bills in for the year, before they get boxed and stored. During the flood it got wet and the bottom rusted out. So... that jumped me into makeover mode. So grab your metal filing cabinet.
And mod podge it with phone book pages. (You can use my previous tutorial on how to do this here.)
Cover the entire metal filing cabinet. I left some wrinkles in mine. If you are just going to leave it like this. Make sure your papers are down and smooth.
Take spray paint and lightly spray it all over. In some of the areas you can see the paper through it.
Take fine grit sandpaper and lightly sand the spray paint, revealing more of the phone book pages and giving it a weathered look.
A fun eye catching piece for your home office. (Or you can slide it into the corner because your house is still a mess from a flood. And it's regular home is torn apart!)
