So, the weather was not as cool this morning as I’d hoped. It was however very nice Thursday evening, so I took my cabinet, soon to be “shipping station” outside and started prepping. As a reminder, here’s what it looked like the day I picked it up from the side of the road.TSP. I call it carpet because that’s what the back reminds me of. It looks like the back of a carpet or rug.
Under the “carpet” there was a name. It’s pretty hard to make out. Any ideas?veneer to cover the insides but to do it right I would need to buy more than one sheet which would dramatically increase the cost of my project. I’m contemplating doing something with wallpaper or contact paper. I may start by painting it and see how bad it looks.
I’m thinking about using some shelf brackets to divide up the space for boxes, etc. I went to Lowe’s today to check out my options. I did not purchase any brackets but did pick up some paint. At first, I didn’t think they had the Safety Red Paint so I picked up a can of Lobster Red. It’s pretty orange, but since it’s called red I wonder if it will be a red orange. As I mentioned before, I’m a little worried that the Safety Red might be too red. I bought a can of each and plan on painting two of the drawers, one in each color, to see which one I can live with.
So there’s where things stand. Hopefully we will get a couple of cool non-rainy days so I can paint! What do you think? Should I spring for the veneer? Any other ideas?
