Upcycled vintage bookcase
A vintage bookcase upcycled to a high standard. Finished with midnight blue paint and dark oak stain. A great way to store books, kids shoes or other small items.
This bookcase was retrieved from a house clearance, where it had sat in a hallway for the last 50 years. It was sanded back to bare wood before the new finish was applied. And the shelves have been stained and varnished for extra durability.
As this is a vintage item, the wooden surface shows signs of age as expected. For anyone who likes a more natural, rustic style, this is a beautiful thing and provides a nod to the history of the piece.
And in case you’re wondering if your books will fit, the gaps between the shelves are as follows: Top – 21cm, middle – 24cm, bottom – 26cm.
