Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!

vintage filing cabinet

This lovely vintage filing cabinet was looking very tired and sad when I got it.
Using Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in typewriter I have freshened it up and given a whole new look.

 Here is the side before.

 Here it is after the milkpaint has dried.

Here it is with half the hemp oil applied, it is an amazing difference.

The drawers were painted with typewriter too, but a little more watered down and lightly distressed.
 The top was kept natural and has just been coated in the hemp oil.
It has a pull out shelf to read files on.
I have replaced the timber handles with new brass  catalogue drawer pulls.
I love how it looks now!
