This Art & Crafts style oak dressing chest was in a rather unloved state when we rescued it, and needed some pretty extensive refurbishment. It was always going to be a more rustic piece, even after repair work, so if you prefer your furniture pristine look away now. However, if you like character, chippy charm and old foxed mirrors then this is your lucky day!
This is now in good antique condition, with no wobbles, loose joints or sticky drawers.
I have layered several different colours of paint on the body of the chest, the last being white, and lightly distressed it. The drawers were sanded back to the oak and stencilled with a tree design that seemed appropriate to the Art & Crafts movement. Then the whole chest was sealed with several coats of neutral wax. The original handles have been restored and reattached.
Dimensions; Height 147 cm, width 84 cm, and depth 49 cm.
