equestrian file cabinet with ribbons

Ready for a quick bit of inspiration? So I found an old, sad & pitiful filing cabinet at Tina’s. It was actually pretty gross & Tina smiled when I asked if I could have it. In fact I don’t even want to put a before photo on my blog because it is so ugly. But you just have to see this…

Ummm ewwwwwwwwww. This poor little thing looked like a goner.

I cleaned it up, sanded down the rough rusty spots & sprayed it down with Rust oleum paint in a pretty turquoise shade. Then I added bits & pieces of ribbons on along the edges & to the front. Then I decided the turquoise color was too bright so I found a lighter blue color & gave my cabinet another coat.

But look at it now! It adds a nice touch to my office & Horses & Heels headquarters.
