  1. Get some help moving the drop cloth under the metal cabinet to protect your floors from paint drips.
  2. You'll start with the bottom half, so mask off the top and handles. Use your roller and brush to paint the bottom (and inside if you want) with the Rust-Oleum® Stops Rust® Hammered in Gray. Follow application directions on the can to ensure a perfect finish. Let dry.
  3. Remove tape and use your roller to paint the top of the cabinet with the Stops Rust® Hammered in Silver. Let dry completely.
  4. Fill with supplies and watch your home office transform into a clutter-free environment.
