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