Teal painted cabinet with glass panelled doors and fabric inlayed interior.

Dark Tropics Drinks Cabinet

We were commissioned to transform this 1940's oak bookcase in to a drinks cabinet for our client. 


We already had this piece in our "in house stock" and we were drawn to this piece by its beautiful curved shape and carvings with its bold lines and soft floral design, Perfect for a smart clean paint finish.


Our Clients went with the "Dark tropics" frabic from Avalana designs, which we made a pannle from to sit neatly in the back of the piece. Perfect back drop for glasses and thier favourite gin bottles!


We worked closey with our client to choose colours to suit the piece and also their wall colour and interior style. We choose to use Green 04 from the Lick range, a warm green with a hint of blue so complement all the tones in the fabric, it is very similar to thier wall colour so would blend in creating a very clean feel and allow the fabric to be the feature. 


The shelves have been fine sanded and oiled, The piece has been finished off with a matt varnish for protection.
