Vintage Card Catalog

Vintage Card Catalog

A couple of months ago, I saw an amazing card file display at "Me & Mrs. Jones" (see post here).  I told everyone that I was on the lookout for one and I've been keeping my eyes open since then.  Well, I finally stumbled on this one at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago. 
I got so excited about painting it that I forgot to take a "before" pic.
Trust me when I say that it wasn't all that pretty before! I brightened this old treasure by using"Duck Egg ASCP" and then a coat of clear wax, followed by dark wax to give it an aged look.  
Now I'm looking for more of these to store my art & sewing supplies.
I really LOVE the way it turned out!

Come and par-tay with me at these awesome LINK PARTIES...
