Metal cabinet


You saw this metal cabinet partly already. I found it from the metal trash from work, I had been looking for something like this for quite some time. It barely fit into my car, but I'm really happy it did. I'm not sure A is that happy about the cabinet. He thinks it's hideous and would fit way better into a garage or similar. A said the cabinet might be better painted white. But I don't know, I like the old, scratched look.


Anyway he did help me to break into the cabinets, only two of the doors had keys, the rest were locked. Ignore the boxes on the floor.


On the picture on top is the shelf we used to have in the entry. I found it so dull, handy yes, but so dull. So what do think, are you with me or with A?

Oh yes, and linking to

  1. don't you dare paint it-it is PERFECT as it is. people pay a fortune for these industrial-chic kinda cabinets, especially in such a great colour
    i would have carried it home on my back if i'd had spotted it!

  2. Your old-new cabinet is so much better than the old shelf thinks I. It has more character and I think it is kind of pretty too!

    1. I too wondered if there would be anything hidden inside, but it did not rattle or bang when we moved it so I wasn't too scared.
      Thanks for visiting.

  6. Great find Leena! I love the color and like that you can see some wear and tear. It's perfectly imperfect ;)
