While at my very favorite thrift store I spied this section of vintage library card catalog. It was very stained and faded, as if it had been sitting outside for years, but fot $7 I knew I had to have it!

So, I brought it home and sanded/re-stained it.

Then we bought some mid-century modern table legs, attatched them to the bottom, and now we have an amazing card catalog coffee table with tons of storage space!
