I knocked out that one section that had plywood backing on it. I am thinking about getting a piece of bead board and covering the entire back of it to make it look more finished.
Sunday afternoon we painted it using a sprayer hooked up to my hubby's air compressor and some off white paint we had on hand. My hubby was a saint and did a second coat for me without me even asking! =)
I am also toying with the idea of covering all of the interior surfaces with a pretty patterned sticky paper. I was able to get rid of a broken filing cabinet and organize my files into the smaller filing boxes I bought yesterday: one for medical bills/records, one for our business papers, and the last one for our regular bills.
So, while I don't think I'm done with it, I'm thankful to be able to use it now that it's painted, and that it was FREE! =)
