On my last trip to a flea-market, I rescued an old card- index cabinet. It is small and has brass handles but they were in a shabby state. I made this my next project. What I wanted to do was to give it a nice colour and bring life back to the brass again. One of my favourite colour combinations is pale pink and gold. I decided to paint the cabinet in pale pink. I treated the brass naturally. The result is stunning!
I removed the brass handles with a screw driver and rubbed every surface with sandpaper and cleaned it with a wet towel to get rid of the dust.
I painted the cabinet in pale pink by using a paint roller. It took me three coats to achieve the even finish I was looking for.
Cleaning the handles:
After 24 hours, so that the paint can dry completely, put the brass handles back again. Hey, presto and you´ll have a brand new looking cabinet! 😉
