Re-use a Card Catalog

Back in the good ole days, before libraries had computers and fancy online catalogs, librarians  used card catalogs to organize and locate books.  Fast forward to today, and most people have never used one except when they were a small child.  While card catalogs may go the way of the dinosaurs in libraries, they still have a few uses in a home or apartment setting…

Like a mini bar:  http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/an-old-card-catalog-as-a-minib-82087

A bookshelf: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/look-card-catalog-bookshelf-an-78031

Or a kitchen island: http://www.homejelly.com/one-of-a-kind-repurposed-kitchen-islands/

So the next time you think about throwing out that old card catalog, or you see one at a yard sale, remember that there is more to this little jewel than simply organizing books.
