Old File Cabinets ReDo

So what do you do with an old, heavy, extremely loud filing cabinet? Continue to us it to gather clutter because do you really need to file that much stuff?

I say NO! How funny. The best part is they are free! Free is my favorite number, in case you didn't know. So now the problem....

I have two sons and a husband who often run over my pots with the lawn mower. So I think hmmmmmmm file cabinets could survive a nuclear bomb it should handle them. I rip out the drawers find a funky color to play off the army grey and spray paint it. Put some holes in the bottom and now I got me a giant planter that can survive anything!!! I think I'm going to plant a pizza garden. You know, tomatoes, basil, oregano, green peppers and stuff like that. So anyway I hope it inspires some one out there to re purpose something they usually through away. Paint is amazing!! ps. my taping skills need improvement.
