We love it when a piece of furniture makes the cut after each move (which is such the case with this particular card catalog coffee table). Maggie tells us that it has been in every house with her for fifteen years...
Found at an architectural salvage store, she DIY'd the card catalog to function as a coffee table. And even if it wasn't a table, a card catalog happens to be a great organizing tool. We love that each drawer has a spot for labeling the contents inside (so you'll never have to guess where your spare ruler lives). It's an added benefit that each drawers space is limited--that way, the amount of stuff you keep has to be well edited. If we owned a card catalog coffee table, we'd use it to store craft supplies or for handy items like stamps or a screw driver.
