So wonderfully clever. The smile on the bikini girl is spot on! Her friend can't believe her boldness.  Cheesy

Thank you all so much for your comments. I think the character in the wood is part of the charm, too. Smiley

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Library Card Catalog Restoration on: May 04, 2015 06:05:52 PM
Friend asked me if I could restore an old card catalog. He wanted to surprise his wife, and dear friend, for her birthday. Although I've never done a restoration on this scale, I was excited to give it a go.

It is a Remington Rand card catalog that he found on Craigslist. The person who had it, had painted it this  red, white and blue.

Once stripped, the wood must have been very dry when they painted. You can see the white paint had soaked into the wood. You can also see there was a change in the hardware from the drawer fronts, where they used wood putty.

All stripped and sanded, then did some conditioning to the wood before staining.

Because there was hardware missing I found some similar brass pieces to use on Etsy. Then I started putting it all back together.

Though the cabinet has flaws in the wood from neglect, paint and whatever, it is still a beautiful piece of history. I really enjoyed doing this project for my friend.
Finished!

Even found some old library cards to use in one of the drawers.

This took me a total of about 15 hours to complete. I would like to tackle something similar again sometime. Thanks for checking it out Smiley

This is so wonderful! The fact you fit it all in the traveling trunk just tops it off perfect. Smiley
