A vintage, solid oak, painted chest of drawers. This is lovely and unique chest of drawers, refurbished in a distressed shabby chic style.

Nearly all of the original varnish has been sanded off, and a layer of sand grey paint applied. It has then been over painted with Annie Sloan 'Duck Egg Blue' and Farrow & Ball 'Light Grey'. The chest has then been sanded again to reveal the underlying pale oak. The brass drawer handles have been blackened and highlighted with the duck egg blue. Finally the piece has been waxed with two coats of bees' wax.

The locks are original, but there is one missing. This is a vintage piece with plenty of irregular features, dings, scratches and marks. Two of the drawer bases have cracks, but they are sound. The top has some infills where a top piece would have once appeared.

This is a very solid and heavy piece. The drawers use dovetail joints for construction.

91cm wide, 82.5cm high, 49cm deep.

Collection in person.
