I picked up this metal military file this weekend to try to fill the void I feel from not owning an authentic wooden card catalog. I do love it, but I still feel that empty feeling only a real life library card catalog can fill ;)
This guy is pretty dinged up but, considering its been through a war or two, its kind of rustically chic. In the right space I think it would be so cool. I'm still not sure if I'm going to keep it or sell it. I think it would look so fabulous with some tall hair pin legs added and maybe used as a console table of sorts. Here are some inspirational photos for your viewing pleasure!
Or maybe some wheels???
So what do you all think? Would you ever put such a rust bucket in your home? Think its needs a coat of paint? Can you even paint over rust? I'm kind of at a loss here, I just know I love it and that's where it stands...and my hopes and dreams of parking in the garage dwindle with every shopping excursion!
Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!
