One of the bigger furniture items JP and I talked about getting
once we got back to Bloomington was a nice big file cabinet,
so while he was in class the first week back I stopped
in at a couple office supply stores to look at some and
found out just how much new ones run.
While we were at our local Habitat for Humanity
picking up a killer deal on some bookshelves for our home office,
John Paul picked out a nice vintage-y wooden file cabinet.
(turns out the thing was previously owned by IU)
When we got it it definitely needed a facelift
from the dark green scratched paint, so we sanded it down,
and painted it:
After we got done with the first coat (picture above it after the second),
JP stepped back and went “oh crap, we have a Tardis now.”
That was SOOOOOO not intentional, but it is what is it 😉
