I don’t normally feel I should get danger pay for working on Mint, but I must be honest, it was a bit terrifying photographing this retro display unit! The chap we bought it from said that it’s just meant to lean against the wall, which is how it was positioned when we were photographing it, but I had the constant fear that it was going to fall on top of me! I’m definitely going to get Justin to drill four holes into the back of the cupboard which can the be used to fix the unit to the wall – far more sensible! Anxieties aside, this is a very handsome piece – the wooden shelves and the cupboard, which has glass shelves inside (perfect for a sneaky bar!), are in pretty decent condition, with only minor signs of wear. The two metal brackets which frame the shelves are slightly less neat, with quite a few scratches to the aluminium, and I’m not 100% sold on the brackets which sit underneath the shelves as they stick out slightly, but I’m probably just being pernickety – the end result is a very handsome unit, and a fairly imposing one – at over two metres tall, this is a striking piece of furniture!
