Description

“A one-off, handmade wall cupboard using reclaimed door fronts with vintage brass knobs and hinges featuring three, traditional, sign-written letters”.

This original, and unique cupboard was made 10 years ago for my three children’s bedroom with their initials featuring on each door. The timber for these is repurposed from the original bedroom doors in the Coach House we’d moved into and date back to the 1890’s. They became redundant when we undertook a modern conversion to an open plan layout and needed a good place to live on in time.

The carcass and shelves are constructed from contemporary pine board but the doors were simply sanded down and then finished in a contemporary, but nostalgic pale olive colour. Over the years this cupboard has sustained much (child inflicted) damage and surface wear and been repaired and touched touch up many times which have added to its character and provenance. The colour is impossible to match so now the overall finish is irregular with no real attempt to make them invisible.

The doors and hinge alignments remain true to the day they were made and each door and frame has a contemporary magnetic catch installed to keep them closed.
