Industrial Filing Cabinet

This is probably one of the BEST Hard Waste items
 Daddy Moz & I have ever found.
What a BEAUTY!!!!

These fetch for thousands on ebay.

I was over the moon & knew exactly where it was going.

 Daddy Moz bent back into shape.

 It needed some TLC & a lot a nails.

 I gave it a scrub because it was really dirty, but I took too much off.
See below

At the time it seemed right to take all of the dirt, paint & greece off,
but comparing it to the other ones it didn't look right.

I wanted to get them back to how I found them.

So I wet some tea bags & wiped them over the drawers.
They darken a little, but them I got some black paint,
painted on & wiped off.
It worked.

This canvas was $7.50 form Typo. Impulse buy
I think I will replace it with something more family friendly.

 I also picked up this industrial lamp.
