Revamped Industrial File Sorting Box
Maybe I was a librarian in a past life? Thats the only reason why I think I am seriously obsessed with books, and card catalog drawers... I dunno?
Speaking of libraries...check out this Rustic Industrial File Sorting Box, from about the 1940s. It is an index card filing system. Awesome right? I grabbed this beauty at a yard sale for $3! I know...I've been getting super lucky lately. I debated and debated on whether or not I should paint it...but hey whats a little paint? Everything! I really had no clue what the heck I'd do with it..but after getting it home and prettied it up a bit, I knew it had to go in the living room. Perfect for the remotes :)
So I cleaned it up, sanded it a bit. Then painted it a creamy white color, then took some Dark Walnut stain to it, and of coarse took off the hardware and freshened it up with some ORB!... I really love how it turned out.
See what'd I tell ya perfect for remotes huh?
And here it is with a couple fancies atop of it! An this is the other corner opposite the star with the balls...I will be taking a better picture of the whole fireplace...when the lighting is better, until then enjoy...one piece at a time :)
Thanks for coming by!
