Must the costumes be for humans?

I had the same question!  I have an idea of something super fun for Mr. Skunk but I don't know if it can be entered.

Thank you, NightOwl!
I used Ikea napkins and some Mod Podge to cover it.
The napkins are 3 ply so I separated the first layer with the design and set it aside.  Then I used the other two plain white layers and covered the cabinet completely (I did this in sections).  And finally, I cut up the layer with the design and arranged it in a way I liked and applied it on top of the white.
It looks cloth-like, I think, because the napkins are so thin that when you apply the adhesive on them they tend to wrinkle and when they dry they become a bit transparent.

Thank you, I'm happy with the way it looks so far but I think I want to do the sides, too.

My resolution this year is to try and get organized.  I suffer from a major case of packrat-itis so there's stuff everywhere you look.  You'll see in the "before" picture that I've kind of started with a box system but there are piles and piles of bills and statements and old receipts that need a good home so that's where the filing cabinet comes in.

I'd been searching on craigslist for one for a while but hadn't seen exactly what I wanted.  I'm a firm believer in dumpster diving (which, btw, contributes enormously to my disease!!) and as I was coming home from work the other day I saw 2 perfectly good cabinets so I dove away!!!

I only took one and that was enough...do you guys know how hard it is to fish one of those heavy things out of a dumpster?Huh

Anyway, I gave it a good cleaning and a few Ikea napkins later...here's the result!!

This is how it looked before

And after...

The top of the cabinet

And here's a link if you want to see a few more pictures:
