A Girl’s Best Friend in a Dental Cabinet!

I’ve been keeping my eyes open for interesting and unique jewellery storage ideas. Have even toyed with a few DIY projects, but with 3 projects waiting in line… well, you get the picture.

And then I was antique browsing on the weekend, and came across an amazing dental instrument cabinet.

Do you know what I’m talking about?

This one is an antique from about the 1900s, and is closest to the one I saw.

Of course I overlooked taking a picture of that one! Seriously, who knew I would become so enamoured?

But I was so captivated by all the drawers, the amazing storage potential for all things small and beautiful, that I just had to share!

And since we’re sharing, I wanted to see what other variations are out there.

Here are a few examples of what I found.

This one is from the early 1920s. Did I mention how much I love all these shallow drawers?

Here’s a closer look at a set of drawers when they’re pulled open…

Is your imagination running wild yet?

I really like the style of this next one. It’s a restored antique made of mahogany; the top is original, and is made of removable milk glass.

But the knobs are probably not the originals, and I would definitely change them out. What I like so much is how this one is a little more flexible for your space… and wouldn’t the top be perfect for a great vignette?

Okay, now I’m in love. This one is drop-dead gorgeous!

In a Steam Punk kind of way…

Inside and out!

Don’t you just love the way these drawers open?

It’s a 1940’s piece and is a rare find, which might explain the $12,000 value! Hhhh, I totally heart this one. A girl can always dream!

And this one is pretty cool too.

What do you think? It’s from the early 20th Century. Who knew?

If you’re more into an Industrial Chic feel, then you’ll love this next one! Believe it or not, this rare dental apothecary cabinet has Tiger Wood underneath…

…but you would have to strip it down to bring out the tiger in it 😉 If I owned this piece, I think I would leave it alone. How about you?

I really like this early 20th Century brassy piece.

I can see this cabinet setting off many spaces, and stealing the show.

I also came across this smaller, portable option.

Isn’t it awesome? You can showcase the cabinet, or fold up the vintage Gerstner case and keep the contents inside a mystery!

Or how about this one for another portable option?

Beautiful inside…

And out!

What do you think of these multi-functional jewels from the past? Which one would you choose?

It’s about coming home… If you want a remarkable space that tells your story, contact me to see how we can help!
