I client of mine came across this cool little cabinet. It is unique in how many drawers it has for storage and definitely has a vintage feel. The problem was that it looked a little too much like a piece of office furniture. We decided that the original finish on the metal should stay as is, but it needed a few little additions to make it fit in a home setting.
I built a wooden top to add warmth and a homey feel. The medium color stain blends with the vintage charm and wear of the existing piece. We also determined it looked a little flat on the bottom and could use some sort of base. Casters added mobility and additional charm. The finished piece has a prominent place in the hall -visible from the main living area- and adjacent to the spare room, bathroom and storage room. With that prime location, the uses for all of those cubbies are endless! I think the finished piece is worthy of any home setting.
