The distressed and rustic blue industrial Akro-Mills wall-hanging storage shelf with pullout drawers is in good condition. The black plastic handle on the top shows that this retro-blue metal wall-hanging storage shelf was made by "AKRO-MILS" with "AKRON, OHIO" just below. Beside the company name, there is an Akro-Mils logo. According to references, the particular logo on the black plastic handle was adopted by Akro-Mils circa 1970. Even though there are 45 slots, there are a total of 44 plastic pullout-drawers that have a wonderfully aged and/or slightly discolored semi-clear appearance. Each of the drawers have "20-445 AKRO-MILS, INC. AKRON, OHIO U.S.A PAT. NO. 2,985,333 76-13" near the back. The five rows of nine drawers slide in and out quite easily and are held in position by small drawer guides. While this super cool industrial shelf could simply rest on a surface, there are two wall-hanging slots already made into the back of the shelf to securely mount it on a wall. The beautifully aged and distressed retro-blue metal is further accented with a wonderful rustic patina. All of these stunningly attractive aesthetics come together to give this almost square-shaped Akro-Mils wall-hanging metal storage box a gorgeous rustic-industrial charm.
Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, the Chap Stick in the photos is not included in this listing as it was used for scale purposes only.
One of the plastic drawers is cracked and chipped in the front. Also, one drawer is missing. Also, there are a couple of small dings on the exterior. Other than this, there are no breaks, deep dents, loose sections, or repair places on this gorgeous industrial wall-hanging Akro-Mils storage shelf. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the shelf - mainly in the form of rustic patina and/or light surface rust and distress. Also, the semi-clear plastic drawers have age and wear along with discoloration. While there are some spots of color on the drawers that would not come off with a normal cleaning, the plastic drawers and dividers along with the rest of the shelf have been cleaned with mild soap and water. Hence, the shelf and plastic pullout-drawers are clean to the touch. While the black plastic carry handle on the top shows signs of age and wear, it is still intact and in great working condition.
The decorative possibilities for this gorgeously distressed and aged Akro-Mils industrial wall-hanging storage shelf are many. The entryway or home office would be enhanced by the addition of this retro-blue storage shelf. Also, the craft room, bedroom, or vanity area would welcome this almost square-shaped wall-hanging storage box for its distressed retro-blue color and rustic-industrial charm. In addition, since this larger almost square-shaped storage box is taller as opposed to being deeper, it should fit on more narrow surfaces such as dressers, desks, nightstands, accent or end tables, etc. Thereby, providing a great amount of storage for jewelry, pocket change, and/or small fashion accessories.
The collector will appreciate this metal Akro-Mils industrial wall-hanging storage shelf/box for its good condition, multiple storage options, distressed and aged retro-blue color, rustic-industrial charm, and gorgeous overall appearance.
The aged and distressed retro-blue industrial Akro-Mils wall-hanging storage shelf with pullout drawers weighs approximately 110 oz.
The almost square-shaped retro-blue metal Akro-Mils wall-hanging storage shelf/box measures approximately 13.5" tall x 13" wide x 6 3/8" deep including the drawer handles or 5 7/8" deep for the box only.
Each of the plastic drawers measure approximately 5 7/8" deep or 6.25" deep including the handle x 2.25" wide x 1.25" tall.
The two wall-hanging slots made into the back of the metal shelf measure 9" from center to center.

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote.

However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.
***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
