DIY Filing cabinet makeover - used epoxy to attach cheap 8x10 frames from walmart, painted entire thing using homemade chalk paint in swiss coffee color, then added new hardware and finished it with minwax paste wax to guard against scuffs and scratches.
DIY Restoration Hardware finish. Craigslist table: stripped, sanded, bleached (I used a deck bleach), liming wax, glaze (two coats), clear wax. Lots of work, but I'm loving the weathered gray finish! However, I did break down --- the chairs are from RH ;)
