Marble Top Pot Cupboard

I don't know if this is an over-reaction to living in cramped quarters with stuff everywhere while we renovating or if I am being sensible. Either way I am just wanting to purge all excess stuff and not clutter up our new space. If I can't find a perfect spot for it, then I'm not keeping it. No sentimentality involved.

I bought this little old marble top pot cupboard a year ago, painted the base black and then popped it into storage thinking I'd have the perfect spot for it in the laundry renovation. While there is room for it, I think it's going to make the space (which is a great size for a laundry in the Inner West) seem cramped and I don't want that. So I've decided to let this piece go. Yesterday I gave it another coat of paint to freshen it up and now it's ready for someone else to love.

Dimensions are 50cm by 50cm and 78cm tall. It's a little rustic but solid and the marble makes it quite heavy. There is a tiny chip in the back of the marble. Perfectly imperfect.

If you are interested in purchasing or viewing this just email me ( It will make a lovely addition to any room. I need to stop looking at it or I'll want to keep it!

The staircase is being finished installed today so it is a big step for our renovation. I can't wait to share it with you. So good to not have to climb the ladder anymore!

  1. Dear, where did you get that divine green lamp base/shade? Shady designs?

    1. Hi Roseanna, I actually bought it about 10 years ago from a funny little Chinese homewares shop in Birkenhead Point. It was only $70. I think it was the only nice thing in the shop! The shop has since closed down.

      Cheers Fiona

    2. Dammit. It's about always having one's eye out, isn't it? When you see it, pounce.
      Pity I can't take the pot cupboard but .... there'll be other things, perhaps when I have
      money and a bigger place (sigh).
