Wall units, bookcases, room dividers - I can't get enough of them (and my attic storage space can attest to this).
I'm unsure of the maker, but these pieces show up on the St. Louis Craigslist with some frequency. I've always just missed out on that room divider action, but now I've got one of my very own.
It's a bookshelf. It's storage. It's a desk. It's just so darn functional and a real looker to boot!
This piece did need some TLC, but nothing a dab of Howard's couldn't take care of. Now it's got that perfect vintage patina.
The previous owner obviously didn't notice that the unit is finished on both sides (which is why I believe it is a room divider rather than a bookcase), and added this jankey shelf extension. The screw holes remain, but when against a wall, nobody will be the wiser.
There it is, all moved in and gussied up. We've got a serious shortage of nic-nacs around here, so I'm on the hunt for a nice set of Bill Curry jax bookends, brass ram heads, West German pottery, and the like. Anybody got the hookups?
