Vintage kitchen cabinet for £1?

It seems that prices are definitely rising for vintage kitchen cabinets and furniture on eBay at the moment, so it's getting a bit harder to track down some bargains. Luckily, there are still some great finds available at reasonable prices if you know where to look, and if there's something to be discovered, I'll find it!

This vintage kitchen cabinet with a formica top isn't the prettiest kitchen furniture out there, and you should notice that the seller currently has no feedback, but if you're willing to take a chance on a new seller, you could grab a very cheap bargain with bidding currently at 99p and no bids with 4 days left.

Plus, the dark photography is actually a bonus, as it might mean other bidders won't be paying attention to it, and if you can grab it dirt cheap, you could easily give it a bit of an update, or use it as a cheap project base.

I'd be tempted to consider repainting it a brighter colour, and possibly doing something with pop art on the top to replace the formica. Some suitable art or photos under a clear cover would make it extremely funky without costing a lot to achieve...
