Apartment Therapy reader Joy sent us in a DIY that was part of a larger home office makeover project she recently completed for a client. Looking to save dollars wherever possible, she redid an old rolling cabinet to have the much more mod look and style of the red TPS cabinet from CB2…

...and After!
The Inspiration - CB2's TPS Cabinet
The Process - Priming and Spraying

Here is what Joy had to say about the project: I recently did an office makeover project. My client had a limited budget, and I always try to repurpose existing items- to save on money and scrimp on waste. She had an old oak veneer filing cabinet she thought we would have to throw out, but with a bit of spray paint we transformed it to look like the much pricier CB2. Thought I would share!

Thanks Joy!
