Hello come and meet Miss Marigold Mustard, she is a beautiful cocktail cabinet made in 1956 and has a stamp on her back by the famous English furniture makers Beautility.
She was constructed with a gorgeous book matched Walnut grain pattern. Her central compartment drops down to reveal the original striped glass mixing surface complete with the Beautility logo and comes with a mirror back with a small glass shelf ideal for shot glasses and spirit measures. Her internal light is the original but has been rewired to current safety standards. Marigold has two upper compartments with mirror backs, glass sliding doors and colour changing remote control led lights, they have been installed to enhance her ambience, these cabinets these are ideal for your glassware. She has two central spacious drawers ideal for all your cocktail making accessories etc, and sitting either side of her drawers are two tall cabinets for storing your favourite tipples. Marigold has a plinth base making her strong and sturdy.
My objective for Marigold was because she is in such beautiful condition to save as much of her originality as possible, “WHY” you say, “WHY NOT” why mess with a beautiful piece. She has a fine dress on just her coat needs some work. Her mirrors are in great condition, her glass mixing shelf just needed some touch ups where the paint had rubbed away in their grooves. Her wood interior is in fantastic condition thanks to the previous owner who loved her so much. Now down to her outer coat, it was a thick brown varnish which took a lot of cleaning and bio stripping to remove, but look what she was hiding underneath. Now for the fun part colour choice i wanted bright fresh and spring in the air. I think I managed that using “Morpeth Mustard” by Autentico, a gorgeous shade of yellow and by the way my favourite colour. As I was going for the less is more on this cabinet I just put the colour on her base, drawer edges and around her upper cabinets just to frame her glass doors and sealed with Polyvine wax finish varnish. What do you think, does Marigold look fresh and clean like a breathe of fresh air. The rest of the external wood was treated with Linseed Oil for a good feeding this included the back board and underneath the unit and boy was she thirsty a couple of coats later and after being left for a few days to soak it all up and dry, out came the big guns. Several coats of Osmo Oil in a satin finish for durability and protection Marigolds hardware was not forgotten they were removed and cleaned before being painted gold and replaced.
And WOW doesn’t she look good in her new coat. You better dress to impress at your parties because Marigold will be the star attraction. I have no doubt Marigold has hosted many a cocktail party in the past, she is now set to host many more.
