Vintage stereo sideboard



That's what I think this is, anyway. Actually, it is more likely to have been mono than stereo, but you get the idea. It has vertical dividers which looks like they are designed to hold LPs. I found it last week at a flea market, and it was just the kind of thing I needed for my narrow hallway. The maker is Strømmen Bruk, Hamar (Norway). I am using it to store backpacks and tote bags etc. (we don't buy ugly plastic grocery bags any longer, do we?) I put the two white box drawers on the top shelf, but they are not very good, so I'm looking for something a bit better. Like these Orla Kiely patterned ones, for instance...
