The final product!
Bits of vintage wallpaper make me happy...
...very very happy...
and if its flowered it sends me over the moon!
The final product!

The final product!

I'm new to Junkmarket, and to the world of junking, which is why I didn't think to take "before" photos of my first few projects.
This cabinet is at least forty years old, was badly damaged, and worst of all, it was (shudder) a very sad, very "guy" shade of brown.  Well, thanks to Bondo (I love my Bondo!), good primer, "vintage appliance aqua" gloss paint, and scraps of vintage-design wallpaper, my cabinet is so pretty.  A nice stencil helped too, as you can see!
I love the encouraging and helpful comments offered by experienced junkers & repurposers in this community, and I look forward to your input!

Welcome aboard....we're all glad you are here. Love your re-vamped file cabinet! I am a big fan of vintage wall paper and you have put it to good use here! You hit the two "Ps" on the head...your creation is pretty and practical. Nice work!

Take care,
