As usual there are many really cool pieces out there I want in my home but like most cases, I can't afford & an antique card catalog cabinet was no exception! So I begin looking on Pinterest to see what I could possibly make & I stumbled across a post where a lady made a card catalog cabinet out of IKEA bookcases. Well, I didn't have any IKEA bookcases but I thought I could find something similar. And of course, when you are looking for something that you have seen 1000 times at a thrift stores you can never find it when you need it. However, I was actually sitting in my closet on the floor organizing my shoes when I looked over and saw that I had a white laminate cubby sitting in the corner and it dawned on me, I could use that to make my cabinet. Now I have to be careful because while this was not going to be an expensive project, I still had to watch all cost, so off to Home Depot I went and tried to find materials that would work. Bit bit, I loaded up my buggy & tried to make sure I purchased parts that would enhance the Cabinet & turn it into something that looked authentic & not like a five dollar white Cubby. I thought I would use underlayment as the door In which the Depot cut to the width of the cubby & I added hinges . Once I got home, I began cutting & adding trim to the piece of underlayment. I framed the outer part & I also cut 8 wood squares to give the look of drawers but inactuality, it was a door. I then painted sanded it & painted in brown & gray chalk paint. I wasn't done yet though - it was missing something so that's when I added a piece of reclaimed on the top & bottom to give a finished look!! Finally I added vintage Inspired metal labels that I purchased at Hobby Lobby for $6. Total, the project cost me a total of $28! This was not an extremely hard piece to make but it was definitely time consuming & tedious! I love the way it looks & actually, have made a few more for other people!
