An antique / vintage, solid oak chest of drawers, painted with chalk paints. This beautiful paneled, four drawer chest is excellently made and initialed 'HH' from the individual craftsman. It has raised beveled moulding, barley twist legs and hand cut dovetail joints to the drawers.

Prior to painting, I have sanded off the original varnish to provide superior paint adhesion, masked and removed fittings. The chest has been painted with three coats of Grand Illusions 'Linen' chalk paint. I have picked out the beveled mouldings with Laura Ashley 'Pale Duck' eggshell, and applied a stencil motif in Laura Ashley 'Eau de Nil' eggshell. The ornate metal handles have been painted with Inventis 'Perle' eggshell from France. The chest has been lightly distressed and coated with clear bees' wax.

The top surface has been sanded back to reveal the original natural oak grain and waxed with three coats of French 'Liberon' clear bees' wax.

This is an antique / vintage piece and will have dings, marks and scratches.

106cm wide, 76cm high, 50cm deep.
