Inspired by Vintage Medical Cabinets...Ikea's Fabrikor Cabinet

Pin It


Do you remember my vintage medical cabinets? 
The mint green ones I've had in both the office and guest room?


Well, guess what! I saw these new, but vintage-inspried, cabinets online at Ikea!!...

They come in white...

They are the "Fabrikor" glass-door cabinet and they retail for only $179 each! I was shocked, because these are über cool. I haven't seen them in person, so I'm unsure of the quality. If anyone gets one (or more) please let me know so that I can see what you do with it! P.S. No, I was not paid for this post. Just loving this vintage-inspired option at such a great price.

Need some ideas on what to do with one?

Search "medical cabinet" on Pinterest and you'll get all kinds of ideas...

  1. OH-Those are just GREAT! I really like the green- it reminds me of the green from the 1940s/50s. xo Diana

  5. Fantastic post! Thank you

    I love metal cabinets, glass or no glass.
    At a yard sale yesterday I bought a single file metal cabinet for a dollar. Now I'm leaning towards the medical pale green.

  12. Ikea is doing some really fun stuff lately. I love the cabinets and am going to check them out for height as possibilities on either side of my fireplace.

    Thanks for the inspiration.
