Upcycled: Card Catalogs

I grew up with a love affair for books and going to the library where hunting via Dewey Decimal System was part of the discovery process. The above picture was taken a few months ago at a little vintage shop during a trip to Richmond, VA.     It never fails, every time I see a card catalog, a cozy, comforting trip down memory lane is inevitable. Now that these are obsolete, all I want to do is preserve the nostalgic beauty this piece of furniture brings. While I currently don’t have the space for one, I’m still obsessed with finding the perfect card catalog for…           my jewelry. Yup. I’ve got big plans to upcycle one of these joints and make it a multi-drawer wonderland of adornments. I want to organize the hell out of my rings, go crazy coordinating bracelets by style, and get happy hanging necklaces on ornate knobs.

Apparently, I’m not the only one in love with the unique style a card catalog can bring to a home. Check out these clever uses and get inspired.
