It’s no secret that card catalog furniture is hot hot hot.
So I’ve dug through the web to bring you the best faux card catalog makeovers out there! Some are completely from scratch, some have been completely transformed so they are unrecognizable, and others have been changed just a little to create that apothecary style we love.

The real deals have a bunch of small drawers, but when you’re looking for a storage solution in your home, a bunch of small little drawers aren’t going to be very helpful. Unless you have a bunch of tiny little things to store. I don’t, so I love the faux look, but really behind the amazing style, there is a larger storage area that is totally going to create more storage solutions in your home. Heck yes!
Real or faux, I’m right there with everyone else in falling in love with them.
