I found this file cabinet in a basement collecting dust and someone was throwing out this 1950s wood trunk covered in old masking tape.  I got it for free.  It took 2 hours to peel off the tape (In front of the TV).  Don't know what I will do with it but I would love to put it on a base with some castors.  I might be a little ambitious because I have a storage room with trunks and chests that I found over the years (next to the doors, shutters and table legs!).

I have a couple of metal file cabinets just like the one in your picture in my stash and am looking for more so that I can stack them all together and put some industrial wheels on the bottom for a great industrial storage unit. I once had a army foot locker that was painted bright green and it sat in my booth for awhile, so I took it home painted it antique bronze added some wheels and away it went. That trunk is wonderful and already has a great color scheme. Posted: 4:20 pm on August 4th
