Vintage Card Catalog---Be still my heart

I have been searching high and low for a large vintage card catalog....and ta-da! I finally found one!!


This beauty actually has 6 sections! One being the cool pull out tables that you would use to write down your selections...so neat.

I do respect it in its original form...but you know me,,,,gotta "juice" it up a bit. I found this wonderful brownish/gray tone paint (Wyoming Grand Tetons)...and knew it would be PERFECT! I used the Glidden brand paint + primer combo....LOVE that stuff. Goes on smooth and perfect. I think it turned out great....what do you think?


I added some letter stickers to the drawer front book plates. I eventually want to add lables to the larger sections too...was thinking of doing like major city names or something fun like that.

I just love finding old, tired pieces and breathing new life in them...sometimes it is as easy as a simple coat of paint! Thanks for visiting! Lori
