Can I just shout to the roof tops that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Card Catalogs! I have wanted one for sooooooo long, I have seen many on the boards of Pinterest and I have been on a search for one for several months. My search ended about a month ago when a man answered my Craigslist want ad. He said that he had one with 72 drawers if I was interested. OF COURSE I WAS .. but I was thinking - oh geez - 72 drawers .... how much is that gonna cost me? I had received several emails from others for smaller ones wanting $200+ so I replied - scared for his answer. When he emailed me back an awesome price I was over the moon happy! I agreed to come to Morganton, NC to get it. We spoke on the phone and one Tuesday morning, Frankie and I set off to get it. When we arrived the nice older man greeted us. He advised me that since I had that sweet, nice, southern accent - he knew I would come after it and he agreed to sell it to me, he said, "If you had been a Yankee I would have kept it!" Hahaha - ahhhh that southern drawl of mine pays off sometimes. Hehe! He had several other pieces in his basement that I tried hard to sweet talk him out of, but he is a lover of old things as I am and he was working on a project of his own. We loaded up this awesome, heavy beauty and headed for home. It nearly whipped me and Frankie to get it into the house. My front foyer is a PAIN in the rear when it comes to large objects coming in. We made it - and it sat here in my living room staring at me for a few weeks. Saturday night I decided to head over to Lowes and pick out my paint. I want to share with you the process of my project.
