Droolworthy DIY: Card Catalog Style

By Christa Terry

It’s probably not often than one comes into possession of a full-sized card catalog cabinet, but it happens now and then, as it did to the Lentine Family of Dream Book Design. And, oh my gosh, I just cannot believe how they spruced that bad boy up. Seriously, I am salivating over here.

BEFORE:

AFTER:

Curious as to how they did it? I was, too. Luckily, the Lentines are sweethearts and posted a pretty specific tutorial that includes the supplies they used and how they used them. You know, just in case you end up with a card catalog on your hands.

P.S. – Happy birthday to me!

    I’ve always loved the library and spent many hours looking through the card catalog. This would be a fabulous way to organize my sewing supplies!

    A very merry birthday to you, Christa!!
