A unique and beautifully finished Beautility drinks cabinet, guaranteed to make a statement.  This iconic cabinet is perfect for a household that enjoys throwing glamorous parties. Manufactured in the 1960s by renowned British furniture makers Beautility, this Art Deco-style cabinet has been stripped back, cleaned and refinished in a modern Art Deco style.
The cabinet top and cupboard fronts have been fully restored and oiled, highlighting the gorgeous walnut wood grain. The exterior has been hand-painted with a jewel-like teal-blue colour and decoupaged with a beautiful champagne gold Art Deco-inspired wallpaper. These areas have been finished in a satin varnish for added durability and protection. 
The interior of the cabinet has been painted with a beautiful shade of plum. The middle drop-down door reveals a lovely display area, ideal for serving drinks and cocktails. It retains all the original features with the mirrored back, small glass shelf and wonderful gold Art Deco stencilling along the bottom with gold striped Beautility design and logo. Inside the bar section, the original light fitting remains, which has been upgraded to an energy-efficient LED bulb and modern standard wiring and plug. The opening of the drop-down door triggers this internal light to come on. There are two cupboards on either side of the mini bar, which offer plenty of storage for your glassware. Each cupboard contains a shelf in the middle which has been covered in the same design wallpaper.
The handles have been cleaned, restored and touched up with gold. The two top drawers and bottom drawers have been lined inside with the same champagne wallpaper used on the external of the cabinet and one of the top drawers has a cutlery divider. The legs have been replaced with typical Mid-century style black tapered legs.
Each piece comes with its own touch-up kit and instructions on how to care for your furniture.

Final Note:
All my work is refinished with care and attention to detail using good quality materials and furniture paints. I source quality pieces of furniture and bring them back to life in unique and creative ways.
As with all pre-loved furniture, they may show evidence of their past life with the occasional dent or imperfection. Major imperfections are always addressed and repaired to a high standard, but we believe small marks tell the story of the piece's history and add to its charm. As this item is hand-painted and hand-finished, it may also show faint brush marks, imperfections and texture, which I hope you agree adds to the uniqueness and character of the piece. Please also note that due to lighting, colours may vary slightly from those in the photos. Please kindly keep this in mind during your purchase.

"They are beautiful. I don’t like to match furniture and love mish mash, quirky and odd looking things lol. I absolutely love them. My house is 203 years old and is grade II listed. I think it makes an old cottage come alive and puts a modern twist on it. I love furniture that tells a story or gets people talking at a house party".

Beautiful Bedside Tables

The bedside tables are stunning! The seller was so nice and communicated extremely well, even though she was on holiday at the time I purchased! I said she didn't have to worry until she returned to the UK, but she still started to communicate with couriers to arrange pick-up of the items before her return, which I thought was lovely of her.

I'm extremely impressed with how quickly the seller arranged delivery and accommodated for dates I would be at home for the deilvery. The furniture is also stunning and arrived with no damages and well packaged. Extremely happy with the furniture bought and the seller. A small paintbrush and touch up paint was also included, which I thought was a nice touch.

Thank you so much! I love them.

Kraken Drawers

My new table arrived from PinkDotUpcycling at Upcite and omg I'm in love! I so miss being able to do this kind of thing myself, but cannot fault the work done to bring this table back to life and just look how stunning my kraken's bride is!! . Off to follow the FB groups now to see what other unique pretties I can find! Technically a lamp table, but us three being shorties means it will work just fine for crafting, science experiments etc. . . Only opened up to protect the artwork and a table cloth!.
