I'll admit that the industrial trend is sometimes a little overdone but Im not ready to let go of card catalogs just yet. I saw a few of them at the flea market last weekend and I can't get them out of my head. I especially like the worn wood ones that have a story to tell. The hardware on these adds a nice textural element with a little shine from the brass. Now these babies are not cheap (or easy to transport) so I have provided some alternative ideas below.
Here's how you can get the look at home. Depending on your home and budget, there is something for everyone!
