I just finished cleaning and oiling a double Ladderax unit
from the 1960's that we got for free today.
The entire house smells nice from the Teak oil.
Ladderax is the English version of the Swedish String shelf
that I, as a retromaniac, got tons of.
The Ladderax unit has got a record cabinet, a glass cabinet,
a secretaire desk, a three drawer chest and two shelves.
The sides are white but I'm gonna spray paint them black
as my String shelves as soon as it's warm outside.

For free you ask, how come?
We sometimes find stuff on a place called Freecycle, where
people give away their stuff for free instead of taking it to
the tip. Perfect for us who love vintage stuff and try to be
kind to mother nature.

This is String, but not mine.

OMG! I have been searching Ebay for one of these for months. I can't find one anywhere!
