A Day of Organizing

Here's a shot of the metal cabinet I got at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago. We moved it out on the driveway yesterday so I could spray paint it. It was the first day we've had with weather warm enough for painting outside. This is the "before." I'll reveal the "after" soon.

The painting process didn't take as long as I thought. I even sprayed the inside of the drawers. When I was shopping for the paint, I almost went with a charcoal gray. But Daughter 2 said it would just look like a file cabinet. So we picked out a fun color. Yes, it's now BRIGHT! But very pretty. We're going to move it to my studio this afternoon.

I spent a few hours yesterday morning working on The Great Studio Makeover. I'm getting so close to being ready to paint the walls. I bought the paint yesterday so I'll be ready to attack those yellow walls in the next few days.

Hubby and I also started on The Great Garage Makeover. We're turning the workshop area into an exercise area. He bought a new weight machine from Craigslist - we'll be picking it up this afternoon. Lots of organizing going on around here!

Oh, show us a picture of what you put in the drawers. I like that the cabinet has so many drawers.

I bought a 2 drawer metal card catalog that I spray painted bright red for my sewing room. Can't wait to see what color you chose.
