Globe drinks cabinet

You might remember a few weeks back me alluding to a thrift find that Andrew's Dad found for him at a car boot sale?


Well, here it is, in all its (questionable) glory! A globe-shaped drinks cabinet. Andrew has wanted one for years now, in his quest for a gentleman's reading room (complete with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, brown leather chesterfields and green reading lamps). He already has the green reading lamp and I was hoping that the brown leather chesterfield might be the next but sadly the globe drinks cabinet arrived first.

Personally, I can't decide whether I like this thing or not. Apparently it costs hundreds of pounds new, which baffles me to be honest, but for £8 from a car boot sale, you can't complain there. It's functional, which I like, but there's something about it that I think looks tacky. The two glass decanters were from Rod and Viv, I really like them and can't wait to put port in them at Christmas!


Still, given the huge amounts of fabric and wool that reside in various nooks and crannies in the flat, I'm happy to cohabit with this drinks cabinet if Andrew wants it. I'm not going to promise that it won't 'accidentally' fall down 3 flights of stairs when we move house next year though...

P.S. Again, apologies for the rubbish photos, I'm using Andrew's camera at the moment because mine has died a little and I can't seem to get to grips with it, all my photos come out either grainy or blurry. Believe it or not, these were the best of about 20 I took and given that I have other things to do today than blog, I decided to throw in the towel and just go with these ones. Ah, to be able to afford a new camera!
