I found the brown 2-drawer file cabinet in the Craigslist free listings and picked it up on Sunday night. I stopped at Home Depot and grabbed a can of spray paint and some vinyl adhesive shelf liner.
Rust-Oleum Spray Paint in Summer Squash: $3.98
Con-Tact Creative Covering Waterdance Shelf Liner: $3.48
File Cabinet: Free
Project Cost Total: $7.46
Awesome! The directions for this little project are pretty self explanatory... But I'll explain nonetheless. I took out the drawers and spray painted the exterior shell. While that dried I stuck the adhesive paper on the front of the shelves and cut out the spots for the handles. I let it dry overnight and then brought it into work with me the next day to add a pop of color to my office arrangement!
