$1.99 Filing Cabinet Makeover




  • A filing cabinet (Look on craigslist or local thrift store for a good deal)
  • Sandpaper
  • Chalkboard Paint (We used Rust-Oleum Specialty 30 oz from Home Depot)
  • Chalk
  • Paint roller
  • Paint brush

Begin by lightly sanding the filing cabinet.   After sanding the cabinet, thoroughly clean it with a damp cloth.  Then use the paint roller to apply a thin layer of the paint.  Let the paint dry before applying another coat.  Apply 3 to 4 coats.   Use the paint brush to touch up any areas that the roller could not reach.  We choose to paint over all of the silver hardware, giving it a uniform look; however, that is entirely optional.  Allow the paint to dry overnight before drawing on it with chalk.
