Library Card Catalog

For a few months now I've become a little obsessed with vintage library card catalogs. There is something so nostalgic, striking and just plain awesome about them! I have come across some really nice re-purposed ones online, but the one below from Poetic Home has to be my all time favorite. I can picture many interesting uses for them: storing trinkets, wine, napkins and so much more. Can you imagine a separate little drawer for all of those little things floating around the house!?
Well, having a mom who works for a school that was built in 1950 has it's perks, and can make for some interesting stored and forgotten items. It turns out that my mom's school actually had not just one library card catalog in storage but two (15 drawer sitting atop a 10 drawer)! They definitely need some TLC, but I'm hoping to get at least one of them to look like the one pictured above from Poetic Home.

Wow, what a fun find! I've seen these as coffee tables and art cabinets. Gosh, so many fun uses.
