Gold Leaf Wardrobe and Chest of Drawers

A Willis & Gambier bow fronted chest of drawers that we have upcycled with an analgypta wallpaper, which we painted in a deep umber shade and then applied gold leaf to the raised design. The chest was incredibly good quality (as I believe Willis & Gambier pieces usually are) but the finish was a bit meh, so we went all out to give it some pzazz. We were so impressed with the end result we decided to do the same to a petite 1930s wardrobe, so although they are from totally different eras they could easily be mistaken for a pair, as my mother would have said ‘a man on a galloping horse would be glad to see it’ – don’t even ask… 😀
