A Library Card Catalogue for My Studio

I have been looking for a library card catalogue for my studio for a couple of years now.  I found one in a little antique store in Waxahachie.  I looove it - it just made this corner of my studio.  This is the view as you enter my space.  I'm in the process of labeling all the drawers...I usually open about 12 drawers before I find the one I'm looking for.

This is the storage I have in this space.  My studio in KS had a full closet - I only have open storage in this house, so I will have to work at keeping my storage neat and tidy!

This wall is the "ugly" wall.  The necessary printers.  One of those white, plastic folding tables from Sam's.  A TV so I can watch Sabrina and Christmas movies all year round.  But I'm glad to have room for two tables in my new studio!  Now I can leave beads all over one table and scrapbooking and journaling stuff all over the other table.

 My husband and son were truly good sports when it came to driving 1 1/2 hours to pick up the card catalogue, take out alllll 60 drawers, load into the truck (a beast to move even with all the drawers out), put allll the drawers back in, 1 1/2 hours back home, take out alllll 60 drawers, carry the beast upstairs, carry alllll the drawers upstairs, put alllll the drawers back in....

I have to admit, the day after I bought this I had buyer's remorse - not because I didn't like it, but because my hubby did our taxes...because we sold our house a year ago and have been apartment hopping and are now in a rent house and have no mortgage deductions...we owe almost $10,000 in taxes.  Yes, you read that right.  I'm still in shock.  But....once I got this home... yes, I'm still glad I bought it!
