Hubby grabbed this index catalog cabinet at the local flea for $60.09! I was a little taken back...the veneer was peeling and a lot of wear. (Sorry no before pics...). But I cam home and he had already replaced veneer and filled in spots and had made his own yellow chalk paint from an oops can from Home Depot! It was bright to say the least! I got to work with AS clear and dark wax and the transformation was better than I had imagined! I loved it! I kept the hardware plain because I wasn't sure what or how to change the metal...but here is finished piece with some during the process.
Cool Card Catalog Upcycle!!
- Chalk paint (Home Depot oops paint)
- Annie Sloan waxes (Www.refinedvintage.com)

62q10370829 on Nov 07, 2016I have a few medal ones that are only 2 drawers each. They stack on top of each other. And they have little like medal leg on bottom to set onto another. And a big one that has dividers in the drawers. We got them at goodwill. They came from the Air Force base in North highlands, CA. Check to see if your town has a place that sells used county office stuff or government. Sacramento, ca Has one.
