The first thing was to put slats on the bottom for the wheels. The reason the above photo has two unpainted slats is because the first wheels we put on were just to small ascetically. So we actually replaced the wheels after the file cabinet had been painted. Also, these wheels were silver when I bought them, I spray painted the metal part with Rust-oleum Hammered spray paint. Photo on right.
Sometimes I take the veneer off, sometimes I just leave the chippy places and paint over them, but this time I filled in the chipped veneer with plastic wood putty and sanded and sanded.

Decency dictates that a man or boy give up his seat to a tired mother with a young child or a baby in her arms, to a pregnant woman, or to an old or crippled one- or to an old or disabled man. The person to whom the seat has been given says, "Thank you," but never opens a conversation with his or his benefactor.
