A Project: Library File Drawers

Here's a little taste of what I LOVE to do! These rusty old file drawers (the size used to hold library cards, back when libraries used cards and dinosaurs roamed the earth) came from a garage sale. I paid $4 for all of them. They were rusty and ugly. But they were LITTLE DRAWERS and I ADORE anything with little drawers!

And here they are existing in reality as I originally envisioned them: painted a nice, shiny RED! Aren't they pretty? And contemporary-looking? And SHINY!

  1. Wow, it's been 25 years since I saw a card catalog. this is really something worth conserving, just so we can show it to our kids and say "When I was your age, THIS was Google, and the whole damn library was Wikipedia."
