Card Catalog progress

This card catalog cabinet we got back in July has been sitting for awhile, waiting, til yesterday.

I rolled it outside, sanded the sides down, and used Bondo to patch a lot of holes/gouges/nicks/etc. It isn't til you begin looking at something carefully that you can see just how bad it really is.

The plan was to patch up the sides, add a top and paint the sides and top glossy white, leaving the front as is.

Here's the cabinet with a coat of primer on the sides and the top in place (unpainted):

Everything painted:

Some the red is peaking through on the sides, I think I am going to have to put another coat of primer on to cover it and then another coat of final gloss. Also, the plan was to add 5" feet to the bottom.
