Repurposed





What has a nicer look to it than a vintage, solid-wood card catalogue? I have a little metal one at home, but I've always wanted a large, stand-alone wooden number. A quick search of the web found the two images above, and I'm sure lots of people have found creative ways to use card catalogues.

This is sort of nice.

That's kinda cute, how they've used the card catalogue for smthing else than it's original intention.. lol

That looks amazing. I love it! While I appreciate the irony ("NO FOOD OR DRINK IN THE LIBRARY!"), I think I'd use it to store other things. Paper clips, perhaps. Hair barrettes. Magic beans.

Wow! I would love a card catalogue for my living room. Fun! What a great idea.
