bespoke industrial reclaimed 1950s stripped and distressed bare steel wardrobe / cupboard

Vintage Reclaimed Urban Industrial Chic 1950s Stripped Down and Distressed Bare Steel Coat Cupboard or Wardrobe with Brass 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 !

I 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…

I didn’t strip the inside of the cupboard so this still show the original black enamel paint aswell as signs of wear, we did strip the back of this unit, but left it rusty and then sealed with clear lacquer so it won’t spread or come off… if you would like use to strip the inside and/or the back the price would be almost double, but we can of course do this…

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…

The height is 1802mm, the width is 910mm and the depth is 565mm (not including the handles!)….
