For the longest time, I’ve wanted to refinish two filing cabinets and make them look chic and industrial. Thing is, I couldn’t find a matching set and the rare occasion one would come up, it would be way out of my price range. In this “How To” I’ll be talking about how to turn wood into faux metal. You can do this on any surface, but since we couldn’t find any real cabinets, Glen made me these boxes. Don’t tell anyone, but it’s literally a box with lines scored into it to make it look like a filing cabinet.
Ever since receiving my Fat Paint in the mail a few weeks ago, the wheels have been turning. It’s not secret that I love barnwood, but it’s hard to find. When we build our furniture it is all out of new pine as we don’t have access to barnwood, so the vintage/farmhouse look is hard to achieve. I grew very tired of this sofa table. It just seemed so harsh to me. I love light colors and soft touches. As I was scrolling last night I came across Bless’er House. She turned her ugly black sofa table into barnwood – and the light bulbs went off! I knew I had to try it!
