A DIY coffee table that went from trash to treasure.

Below is a wonderful DIY coffee table that I found while lurking on Craftster over the weekend.

This is such a cool idea! Summer came up with the idea after spotting a $7 vintage library card catalog at her favorite thrift store.

That’s right I said $7. 

So, she brought it home, sanded it, re-sanded it, and added some modern table legs…and voila!

That is pure genius! Love it!


Yes, this is truly fabulous! What a wonderful labor of love with such great results. And what a steal on the price, goodness! :~)


That’s so adorable! Being a library/bookstore junkie I’m VERY envious!
