From Beast to Beauty

"There's nothing much to look at here. A few old metal storage files. Want 'em?"

Me: "Do wild bears live in the woods? ....Got anymore?"


I just knew these beastly things could be beauties......as recipe boxes, storage containers, sitting pretty on shelves, the possibilities are endless. I snatched the ones with working drawers and snuck away, secretly feeling a little guilty. Just another day of turning junk into jewels!

What a score! I've been dreaming of card catalogs but haven't been able to find any (not that I've looked too hard yet). Beautiful job! Visiting from Junker Newbie.
