Old File System Revived
I bought this old handmade file system piece… I wasn’t too sure what I wanted to do with it but I liked it so I brought it home… I really need to rethink this strategy based on the overflow situation happening at my house !!
I fixed up the rough spots and then painted it with a couple of coats of Benjamin Moore Super Spec in Wedgewood Gray (which is clearly more of a blue than a gray). Let me tell you… have I been spoiled working with chalk paint! This paint had ok coverage, but it smelled very strong… and I had to apply 3 coats… not a very enjoyable experience… maybe I should have sprayed it… YIKES!
I also added these cute black catalog labels which attach with the tiniest screws.
In some of the cubby’s the wood was pretty beat up so I did have to do a fair amount of sanding.
I also printed out some small paper inserts that are easily removed so they can be customized.
I think this would be great to hang on the wall to help organize all kinds of things! Umm… I could go a little crazy organizing “stuff” with this piece! What about a purse organizer… who doesn’t need one of those?
So what would you organize with this?
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out!
Until next time…
