Trash to Treasure (Alabama Crimson Tide Makeover)

 I LOVE trash day because I always find furniture that people throw out that are in good shape that I can fix and paint and make it look brand new. A while ago I found this file cabinet that someone was throwing out and I knew I could make something out of it so I grab it and decided to put it in the hubby's "MAN CAVE" for him because he did need some extra storage. Of course I couldn't leave it as it was, even though it was in ok shape so I gave it a "Alabama Crimson Tide" makeover. My husband favorite college team is "Alabama Crimson Tide" so whenever I buy or make something for his room I make to go with the team colors or logo.

So the colors I decided to use was black and Red Sedona. My hubby said they do have a color red called "Crimson Red" but I couldn't find it so I just found a color that I thought was close to the color which was Red Sedona at Walmart.

After the paint dried I let the hubby put on whatever Crimson Tide stickers he wanted on the file cabinet.

This is the BEFORE

and this is the AFTER

This project cost me about  $20 in materials to make and I still have a whole lot of paint and stickers left over for other future projects. Other Alabama Crimson Tide furniture that I saw online price range from  $100 -$500 so I was glad to make this for $20 and still have materials left over.
