About this item

This is a beautiful 1930s Cabinet made in solid Oak featuring sweet bakelite handles and sitting on a barleytwist frame. Features a pull down section over 2 cupboard doors providing handy storage. (Would have been made as a music cabinet originally so the lid also lifts up if desired however nowadays you would likely leave it closed.)

We decided to mix the heritage feel with a more up to date look by using a white-washed effect; here we used a delicate wash of 'Paris Grey' Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan; slightly distressed to reveal the wood and then waxed with white wax. The result is a really subtle sun bleached, worn effect which really shows off the patina of the oak.

Has both traditional and modern appeal; I can imagine this used in a rustic country cottage perhaps in the bathroom to store linen or this could also work as a quirky television cabinet.

In good vintage condition, the cabinet stands solid and the doors open really smoothly. The only thing of note is that inside some holes have been drilled through the shelf section at the back to get wires through, however this is not noticeable.

The dimensions are approximately as follows;

Height 95cm

Depth 46cm

Width 64cm
