Weekend Project: Make An Old School Card Catalog!

Winona Dimeo-Ediger | September 15, 2012 - 10:00 am

One of my interior design dreams has always been to have an old school card catalog in my house. I’d love to use it for organizing recipes, jewelry, craft supplies, or just general storage. I could spend hours scouring garage sales to find an antique one, plunk down some serious cash for a reproduction, or better yet, I could craft my own. This tutorial uses IKEA drawers, but you could use any light-wood drawers–just add some wood stain and brass labels and ta-da! You’ve got a fabulous storage space guaranteed to impress your librarian friends! [The Painted Hive]
