Just What The Doctor Ordered

I was trolling my vintage shopping favorites and came across something curious. I quickly dismissed it but a few minutes later, I just had to revisit it. It was an old, beat up, rusting metal medical cabinet.

Past Present Future

I thought, 'huh, that's kinda interesting'. It would probably be fantastic... cleaned up and given a home. Maybe in a bathroom or in a hall... even in a dressing room.

So I Googled Vintage Medical Cabinet and came up with all sorts of findings and they are quite pricey, ranging from $500.00 to $1700.

Although these pieces are old, they enchant me with the cabriole legs and the openness of the glass shelves. Perfect, I think for a master bath. I imagine it in a glossy white, filled with rolled towels, luxurious bath foams and candles.

Just another item to be on the hunt for at my next visit to the flea market.

I would love to have one to house my blown glass and crystal knick knacks. I think they would look great in such a cabinet.
