When we bought our last house we found this old metal filing cabinet in one of the closets. Yikes... Trash or Treasure? It is in really good shape and hubby could use a filing cabinet at the lake so I decided it just needed a little Pixie Love...
As always I cleaned it very well.. The most important step to getting your paint to stick! Mixed me up some Pixie Dust and went to town painting a little white, and then a little black.. I hit it with a hammer a few times to get some shabby later.
Then added my favorite custom mixed blue/green up with Pixie Dust Paint Powder.
Then I just distressed it with some sand paper here and there and everywhere!
Ok so Pixie Dust just came out with a new wax called Pearl Wax!! OMG! I love shimmer... not glitter a real pearl shimmer!!
I took a picture 1/2 way through the waxing process so that you can see what a difference the pearl wax makes.. The wax makes the paint look so rich with just a hit of pearl.
I am in love with this new product from Pixie Dust Company!!
I hope I have inspired you to save something you thought was a piece of junk!!
