I’d guess that this case once bore a thin skin of cloth but if so it is long gone. This is actually to our advantage because it is striking looking and would make a great decorative piece.
It measure 34 inches wide, 21 inches deep and when closed it is about 11 inches thick. It is in OK shape there are two longitudinally split boards and one of the leather handles is broken. Unfortunately we don’t have the key for the locks either.

An interesting mirror with wooden bird-cage style doors over the glass.
It’s like seeing yourself in jail, except you’re still beautiful and looking in from the outside. Don’t worry, the grill section is actually two doors and they swing open for those days you’re feeling like making a jail break or you need to really see what’s going on.
This faux vintage mirror measures about 31 inches wide by 35 inches tall. $70

Yesterday we showed a little green cabinet that didn’t take up too much room as an option for storing things in small living spaces. The other classic gambit is to go up, vertical is a valuable, versatile friend when you don’t have a lot of horizontal space.
This great old cabinet has a small foot-print of only 19 inches deep and 17 inches wide but it stands 49 inches tall. There are three drawers and a cabinet so you can put lost of different stuff in here. It is in good condition although a paint job might be in order at some point down the road (but be careful sanding since it is probably lead paint).

I’m not sure about the green, but the cabinet is a cute little piece. It is in OK condition but probably could use a bit of glue and/or a coat of paint.
I like how this piece isn’t too deep so it won’t stick out into your way in a small space, but it still looks interesting so it adds a fair bit of visual and aesthetic weight for a small piece.
It measure about 30 inches wide, 14 1/2 inches deep and stands 34 inches tall.

It doesn’t have a lot of depth, but don’t call it shallow. Think low-profile, chill or incognito instead.
This vintage / antique piece is about 30 inches wide, all of one foot deep and 41 1/2 inches tall. It is in good condition too.

We just got in another in this line of fine tables. We’ve had a couple of them before which, like this one, were rejected by a discerning retailer due to drying cracks. We’ve shown a close up example of this in the slide show below. The crack extends about 1/2 of the length of the table, but it is a series of small cracks rather than a large fissure. The biggest single crack is about the thickness of a quarter and roughly the same length as the diameter of that same quarter.
I think it might be possible to actually wedge the quarter in to the point that it wouldn’t be removable through normal means, but it was my quarter I was using and I’m too much of a cheap skate to risk the loss. Feel free try it with your own quarter if you really want to find out.
They’re handcrafted of reclaimed hardwoods, whitewashed and sealed. These are basically big functional tables with a simple aesthetic that would fit pretty much everywhere.
They measure 82 inches long and 38 inches wide.
