Materials: Ikea Helmer file cabinet, black spray paint, chinese chinoserie image from online and mod podge
Description: I wanted my file cabinet to look less like a file cabinet so I decided to have a little fun with it.
First I sprayed the cabinet a flat black paint, then I googed the word chinese chinoserie online. When I found an image I liked I printed it off on my printer and then took it to the local print store and had them enlarge it to the size of my cabinet. I took off the hardware, placed the image on the cabinet and started mod podging away! Once the cabinet was dry I cut out the drawers and put the hardware back on. Done!!
