IMG_8207When I saw this small office cabinet on Freecycle, I knew that I could transform into a stylish retro cabinet for home use. So here is what I have done.

First I’ve painted the inside in 3 shades of grey from Farrow & Ball, Mole’s breath, Lamp room grey and Skylight.

Then, I’ve refinished the outside with Sadolin Interior stain in Teak, after I’ve have lighted sanded the top and sides of the unit.

Then, I’ve decided to give a bit of colour by adding yellow to the internal shelf with Farrow & Ball Babouche.

And to finalize the work, I’ve bought from eBay a set of original vintage dansette legs, which I’ve also painted in yellow Babouche to replace the old, boring metal legs.

The final result was a very stylish retro cabinet, that can bring some colour, fun and storage to any room in a home.
