DIY Knockoff Card Catalog: With a Surprise!

45K Views
I have been crushing on some amazing antique card catalogs and just could not bear the $1000 price tag that comes along with them. So I came up with a solution...my own Knockoff version for $60.
I started out with this cabinet that I found for $30 at my favorite thrift shop.
Cost: $60Difficulty: Medium

I tweaked it a bit here and there with about $30 in materials, meticulous planning and measuring, and lots of patience.

My original inspiration version...$1000 and mine...only $60!
Oh, and here's the surprise...the drawers are not real so I can use the cabinet for extra storage in my entryway.
