But $119 for an Ikea cabinet just couldn't sway me, even with all of its shallow drawer goodness. I put it on my "one day I'd like to buy" list.
On Tuesday I ran to Walmart and decided to swing by the dump on the way home, just in case, and OMG I am so glad I did because I hit the mother lode.
I may have squealed out loud. I definitely almost didn't get the car stopped while trying to get out of it before anyone grabbed the cabinet. Now, not to mislead you- it didn't look this nice. I painted it white immediately upon arrival at home. No going on the someday list for this cabinet. It went from standard filing cabinet tan to white pretty easily.
Now I need to actually put the paper in it. I am so thrilled by this find, and there was actually another similarly awesome find that day (score!) but it's not quite ready to show yet.
One thing- if you have any suggestions for filling the busted out lock hole, please let me know. I don't mind it but something pretty is just as good, too.
