Hi Friends… My oldest daugher was in need of some more storage, so I decided to shop the house for some ideas.  We had an old file cabinet that was in a storage unit we purchased at an auction.  It wasn't pretty, but with paint… there's always hope!

Here's what we came up with…

Here's what I started with…

Worn & ugly!

We started by sanding it lightly, priming it and giving it a coat of fresh, white paint.

My daugher decided she wanted a diagonal stripe.

I used a ruler to help with the spacing and used FrogTape painter’s tape so I would be able to create a crisp, straight stripe.  FrogTape's® new Multi-Surface tape worked awesome!  FrogTape® has PaintBlock®  Technology  that creates a micro barrier that seals the edge of the tape… creating that beautiful straight edge!

Once you've place your tape on give it a rub, making sure the edge is sealed.

We started by painted a lime green.  Then once it was dry and we had removed the tape, we taped up the other direction and painted teal blue stripes.

I love how it turned out & I was honestly very impressed by how perfect the lines are!
