The card catalog is sealed and in the dining room!

However, the brass hardware is proving kind of impossible to clean. I think I’m going to have to have it done professionally, so this cabinet won’t be finished just yet,

It also…really looks like an antique next to all of our new, modern dining room furniture. I have to make some moves in that room so it doesn’t look like this sad, discarded old relative in the corner that can’t keep up with all the young whippersnappers.
