Vintage 1950s Beautility Cocktail Sideboard With Black & Gold Art Deco fan design
A unique Art Deco makeover of a original vintage Cocktail sideboard by famed English cabinet makers Beautility.
When it came to me it clearly had been very well loved and used in its previous life! Possibly an office or a school as it had taken a lot of knocks and featured a lot of blue tack stored in various corners!
Because of that it did warrant re-finishing completely to refresh it and make it something to love again, although it still retains some of its original vintage charm. But it has had a total transformation with a new Modern Luxe look that would now make it the perfect addition to any glamourous or eclectic interior.
It has been refinished in a Black and Gold Art Deco fan design paper carefully applied to match the lovely curves of the piece and finished with plenty of protective top coat.
It has oodles of storage space because of it's extra height. A central display section for showing off those all-important pretty bottles has double glass sliding doors and has been re-finished in Gold metallic and a discreet LED light has been installed to illuminate everything from behind.
There is also a slim glass shelf for displaying glasses that sits left to right internally across the back of the section, though this is optional - more pictures will be added once that is restored.
The rest of the cabinet exterior has been refinished in Black as have the cabinet bottoms to refresh them
There are two spacious cupboards left and right of the perfect height for taller bottles and then a handy ledge in runs across the front of the piece.
There are two more even deeper cupboards each split in height with a shelf and three deep drawers in the centre.
The whole thing sits on splayed vintage legs which have been refinished in black to accentuate them and tie into the whole design.
The finishing touch... the original handles have been re-finished to match the new look in deep Gold metallic.
Dimensions: 102cm high 123cm long 48.5cm deep (50cm including handles)
