Bespoke Industrial reclaimed vintage 1960s chic stripped and distressed bare steel two drawer filing cabinet

Reclaimed Vintage Urban Industrial Chic 1960s Stripped Down and Distressed Bare Steel 2 Drawer Filing Cabinet with Silver Handles… It has a great industrial look to it with amazing patina on the hardware only achieved with time and use.

It’s very heavy duty and would add an amazing industrial look to your space.

It took us an age to strip the enamel paint off it, but it’s totally worth it because the patina of the steel underneath is gorgeous !

We have a unique method of stripping our vintage metal furniture… there’s a few people/companies refurbishing similar pieces but they seem to do it with little respect for the quirky characteristics of their items’ history – power sanding/sand blasting/acid dipping it all away to create ‘perfectly’ finished pieces quickly… we hate this look ! There’s no sophistication to it, no authenticity, no character !! We don’t take any short cuts… we remove all of the heavy duty enamel paint by hand which does take a long time, but it’s the only way to expose the true vintage patina which sets our pieces apart…

We didn’t strip the inside of the drawers so these still show the original enamel paint, but we did strip the back of this unit… if you would like use to strip the inside of the drawers the price would be almost double, but we can of course do this… the rust on the inside is sanded down and sealed with clear lacquer so it won’t spread or come off…

There are a few tiny dents and scratches and in these recesses some of the paint still remains – we purposefully leave it this way to give the piece authenticity and character…

We’ve finished all of the exterior steelwork with clear wax so you can be sure that it will stay looking just as it is and not rust…

… we prefer to keep unstripped options outside as we don’t have room to keep stripped ones inside the workshop… please get in touch if you would like us to send you photos of unstripped stock !

This cabinet is 467mm wide x 620mm deep x 720mm high… they are all around this size but they do vary a little !

… please contact us to discuss options… anything and everything is possible !
