"I'm a Flea Marketeer" party

This is by far one of my favorite thrift store finds. It's an old/vintage solid wood library card catalogue.

Not only do I love the look, but I LOVE THE STORAGE! Each drawer holds different craft supplies: paint, glue, scissors, hole punchers, glue, glue sticks, glue dots, glue guns,glue pens, liquid name it!

The piece is much bigger than it appears in the photo. It measures almost 4 ft high and 41 inches wide. Probably 2 ft deep (but that's just a guess). I thought about stripping it, painting it, distressing it, etc. But I put it in it's spot in the house and it's original state has actually "grown" on me - I'm keeping it just like it is.
Happy Monday!

I'm linking to Flea Market Style for their first linky party! Take a look!
