Vintage Farmhouse Drawers

If you have a vintage farmhouse decor then you will love this card catalog project from Sam at Raggedy Bits. If you are old enough to remember using a card catalog and have found one to have your home you are quite lucky.

Although its use is no longer for holding cards, the drawers can hold a plethora of items. If you are into crafts, then the drawers will hold a mass assortment of notions, ribbons, buttons, and more. For a kitchen, the drawers can hold utensils.

How practical would it be to have the drawers hold recipe cards, maybe across the top row? Sam shares with us what she used to paint her drawers and tips about covering the drawer pulls prior to painting. With the addition of beautiful paint, this card catalog is ready to come back into service.

Sharing is Caring!

Question, did you remove the rods inside the drawers that held the cards? I am inheriting one that is in very rough shape but would love to use it for my crafts. My dad used it in his tool room!!!
