TUTORIAL:

Step 1: Clean the surface of the filing cabinet before beginning to remove any debris. Make repairs to surface if desired/needed. I just left the my surface the same and just cleaned it to prep for the tape adhesive.

Step 2: Start the the top or bottom of file cabinet and work in the opposite direction. Wrap the edge of the gold duct tape on the interior of the filing cabinet as much as possible.

Step 3: Place the tape and swipe your had across the top edge first to ‘place’ duct tape before fulling applying. Then next sweep tape in a downward gentle motion to prevent wrinkles in the duct tape design.

Step 4: Section your design as symmetrical as possible. If you are creating stripes then leave enough room in between each duct tape stripe to create the next ‘filing cabinet color’ stripe. This gold duct tape I used for this project is perfect for this project because if your design is off, it removes cleanly and easily in order for you to fix.
