Industrial Metal Cabinet

IMG_9851

Tyler and I decided to go to the salvage yard and pick up pretty much anything that was metal and that we thought we could strip the paint off of. This is one of the items we found. Originally, it was painted brown and after we discovered that the stripper was not cutting through the four layers of paint it had, I took the drill and put a metal brush bit on it and proceeded to strip the remainder of the paint. The brushed finish kinda makes it look a bit like something out of a Discovery Channel show about Monster Garages or something but I think it is growing on me.

We finished it with bowling alley wax.
