Upcycled Vintage Mid Century Modern Drinks Cabinet – Black and Gold Design – Saved & Upcycled by TGLP
This 70s lady has had the TGLP treatment and is now ready for its new home.
Because of her compact structure and light silhouette, she will fit in any space but I imagine she will be perfect as a fancy drinks cabinet – the perfect reason for entertaining! The uses for this cabinets are endless but I wouldn’t recommend it for a child’s bedroom as there’s lots of lovely glass!
I’ve tried to upcycle this cabinet sympathetically; I wanted to honour its vintage character by not covering all the wood but loads of gold and black details give her an elegant, modern edge. Internally, the top and sides have been painted gold which gives the light and even warmer glow. I’ve covered the bottom shelf and lined the drawer with waterproof paper with a geometric design. The wood veneer has been re-stained and waxed. Lastly, I’ve replaced the original 70s tube light fitting with a brand new, warm white, LED, Energy Class A++ light with 15,000hrs life span. It plugs into a socket and the switch is integrated on the light tube.
I refurbish to a high standard, with incredible attention to detail and aim to provide honest photographs and descriptions, but please remember that this is a vintage upcycled piece and will therefore have small imperfections which do not affect its purpose or use. In this case, the cabinet is in great conditions – albeit not all solid wood – but there are a few small signs of wear which are shown in the photos. Measurements and signs of wear attached as photos.
This Great Little Place is happy to be commissioned for any project you may need help with and will make sure the design fits in with your own decor and desires. I can also assist with furniture sourcing if you don’t already have a piece in mind.
Thank you for looking.
