Card Catalog Table

The Coolest Use of a Vintage Card Catalog Yet

If you still hold a place in your heart for the Dewey Decimal System, we're guessing you're also a fan of vintage card catalogs. Though charming, their tiny, seemingly useless compartments can make them a hard sell for practical purposes. While we've offered some creative ways to make the most of a vintage card catalog in a modern home, Emily Henderson's flea market find has us rethinking our approach completely.

The additions of brass pin legs and a mirror top transform this card catalog into a smart hybrid — one that turns the glam factor and function up a notch. Emily scooped up this little table at a flea market for $250, and now we're scouring the web for parts to make our own. To see the rest of this beautifully styled space, visit Emily's blog!
