Have you ever seen anything more retro than this? My new record case!

At a record fair that I went to recently, I was browsing the music when the record boxes caught my eye – there were a couple of wooden orange ones, that I thought would be a lovely addition to my retro living room ‘theme’. Luckily, my sister-in-law knows about my penchant for all things vintage and orange, and she pointed out a realllly old, dusty record case tucked away under one of the tables. The box was bright orange and floral. I immediately fell in love with it! And luckily, it was in such a state that the record fair owner was happy to sell it to me very cheaply (evening trying to throw in the country music records inside it!) and of course, my husband bartered him down a bit!

Although it looked pretty grotty I was confident that it would clean up nicely, so back at home we got out the nail brush and some hot soapy water and gave it a good scrub & it came up nicely – an even brighter garish orange! Luckily the inside was in perfect condition and it even has working locks and the correct key, so I’m delighted with this bargain find. I am even considering photographing and replicating the pattern for using in photo frames or even better, printing onto fabric to make matching cushions!
