Mid-Century Record Cabinet, Vinyl storage cabinet
A unique centrepiece, this vintage vinyl storage cabinet has undergone a formidable transformation:
~ the cabinet's doors and sides have been decoupaged with the remnants of some old, tatty, 78 rpm record sleeves from the 1930's-1950's - all intricately arranged to display the branding, advertisements, and taglines of popular record labels and stores of the era
~ completely sanded back removing its original, aged dark lacquer revealing an attractive light wood finish which has been sealed with a medium stain beeswax and buffed for protection
~ the top has been treated to a special chalk paint mix and sealed with a dark wax, mimicking the patina of some of the paper record sleeves and providing protection from items placed on top (it's a perfect size for a turntable)
~ the original drawer pulls have been cleaned and enhanced with a gold gilding wax, highlighting the gorgeous opulent design
~ internally, the original dark lacquer has been retained but been cleaned and enhanced with a dark wax application, giving a lovely contrast to the lighter external finish
~ with room for plenty of 12" records, plus space for 7" singles too*, this is a stunningly unique addition to any home living space - and the ultimate music fans dream!
~ the make of the cabinet is unknown, although it is almost certainly from the 'A Record Housing Product' range of cabinets based on others that I've seen
* Note: for reasons I can't explain, the shelved section for housing 7" singles is a little tight, meaning that they can only really be stored in a 'leaning' position (per the photos). Alternatively, this shelf can be removed giving more storage for 12" records
As a vintage item, this cabinet bears all the hallmarks of a well used piece of furniture with visible signs of wear associated with a piece of this era that only serve to enhance its overall look.
