Library Chic- You can do it too!!!

Thanks for all the kind words about my sister's card catalog makeover!  It's clear that I'm not the only one willing to give up my first born search every Goodwill in the tri state area to score one of these things!  I thought I would throw together some online options for you fellow library nerds, and while these aren't the thriftiest finds they are library chic and available for purchase right now!

So what do you think?  Would you buy a faux card catalog from a big box store or does it mean more to know that it's the real deal...straight out of a library?  I think my personal vote would be real deal....so the search continues!


  1. I saw one today in an antique store. It was $325. It perfect condition, the real deal!

  2. While I would always love the real deal better, I wouldn't necessarily go past a faux one either! Gorgeous pieces but I don't think I'll be finding one of those in my home town somehow :)

  3. I'm loving that tv stand with the faux drawer cabinet doors. Can't wait to see the card catalog in your sister's place! : )

  4. Prefer the real deal but I do like the World Market one that's also a tv stand.

  5. saw this today on craigslist and thought of you! Wished you lived in atlanta! http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/atq/2550479257.html haha :) I can't afford it or I would buy it myself!

  6. I would wait for the real deal. Much more fun to make up a back story for it.
