A few weeks ago, we had lunch with some friends. In the course of the conversation, I mentioned that I was looking for a card catalog. My friend looked at me and said, "I have one in the garage, you can have it." I nearly fell over! When I saw it, I couldn't believe the shape it was in - take a look:
Pretty sweet, huh?
I have to admit, the top was dirtier than this picture shows. My husband had already started cleaning it with some rubbing compound by the time I took these photos. The little square thing on the top was where a pen had been attached. It came right off! I decided to put casters on the botttom and my wonderful husband volunteered to attach them for me.
The only thing left was cleaning the drawers. They were pretty dirty, so I used Murphy's Oil Soap and some fine steel wool.
Before & After
It now sits in our living room:
If you look carefully, you can see where the pen was attached. I think it adds character.
I am one happy gal! I found that one thing I'd been looking for and I couldn't ask for a better price.
Now what do I want next........??
