ReDo Tuesday: TV stand/File Cabinet

The office countdown has commenced! I only have 4 days until the fun begins in terms of being able to move into my office space! Yayyy!! I feel so grown up! (lil tears) Anyways I knew one of the things that I wanted to have in the office was a TV. Partly so that I can hook up a DVD player too it and have a separate work out area for Yoga and that kind of thing. But also so that if I am in there busy blogging or working on homework or paying bills I can have HGTV going in the background. Heheh. So once again I decided that I should transform the filing cabinet that I inherited for free into a TV stand. It was just ugly. U.G.L.Y. it didn't have an alibi etc etc. It was maroon. Apparently I attract maroon objects.

Not that filing cabinets are ever very exciting but I thought it would be fun to dress this one up. It will go inside of the long closet in the office just off to the corner so I decided to live a little and add some real color!

I chose lime green! I bought this paint color at Lowe's and figured I'd give it a try. It went on really well and had a great matte finish. 

I painted the drawers a silver color so that it would look a bit different then the rest of it. It's not very exciting but all in all I paid only 3.83 for the paint and the rest was free. Not too shabby for a filing cabinet! On the first of July is when the real action is going to start! I'm just getting prepared right now :)
