file this

I bought a filing cabinet years ago from a used office supplies store for a good price. While it filled a need I had (lots of stuff, no place to put it!), I was never really fond of it's appearance. Scratchy. Dark. Brown... nothing wrong with brown, I just don't decorate with it, so it doesn't suit my home.

So it sat in my school/computer/sewing room,
like a dark and dreary bohemoth in the corner.

This week I had enough. And when I have had enough, that means business is going to happen and things are going to change.

After
one can of Kilz Odorless Primer
and
two cans of Rustoleum Ultra Cover Aqua...
