DIY Aged Steel Cabinet

Tricia from Simplicity in the South had a locker cabinet from IKEA hanging out in her storage building that she knew could be transformed with “a little paint, inspiration, and determination.”

Tricia outlines all the steps she took to take the look from that of a locker room to a high-end catalog.

I just love this finish! You’ve got to check out the close-ups to really appreciate the beautiful patina Tricia achieved!

Tricia was inspired by the Vintage Industrial Steel Cabinet from RH Baby & Child.

As you can see it really doesn’t matter so much the “look” of the original piece. This approach to creating an aged look can transform any old-school metal locker or storage cabinet.
