Smart Card Catalog Coffee Table

Repurpose / Refurbish

Irony may be en vogue with hipsters these days, but we also see its presence in home decor, like this fantastically repurposed library catalog coffee table. Though, the internet played the “video-killed-the-radio-star”card and essentially turned the Dewey Decimal System into an archaic archiving mode, today’s project shared on the same “World Wide Web” turns the tables and thus, brings these cute catalogs back to life. Pin-legs and a mirrored top is all it took to graduate this piece from unsatisfactory to outstanding.

Design Tip: Use these apothecary-type drawers as storage for dice, pens and pencils, remotes, and many other items you wish to have on hand. Extra bonus: a labeling system is built right in! Smart!
