Apple Green Rustic Farmhouse Sideboard
Apple Green Rustic Farmhouse Sideboard
This classic oak sideboard features carved details and has a primitive styling which really reflects a spring time English country lifestyle. The main unit has been painted in a custom mixed apple green coloured acrylic paint, lightly distressed and antique glazed to give it an authentic time worn style. The original brass handles have been repolished and lacquered to keep them looking bright and shiny. The top has been completely stripped back to the wood, stained with a dark oak wood dye and made durable with a finishing coat of a hardwearing matt floor oil. The original works are still in good working order and complimentary tassels have been added to the handles. The interior has been cleaned up and painted in an off-white acrylic paint.  To add a bit of interest when you open the drawers, I have used Laura Ashley's 'Summer Palace' wallpaper in the Duck Egg colourway.  With the vibrant duck egg / aqua blue base, pink birds and yellow / pink flowers, the interior is as interesting at the outside. Dimensions: 1340mm wide x 480mm deep x 905mm high. As this is a preloved piece with an aged and distressed finish, please examine all the photos carefully before purchase - thank you! Condition notes:
  • the left hand door needs to be pressed gently to when opening the lock with the key.
  • the right hand door needs the key to not be pushed all the way in when unlocking!
  • The back right corner of the top has a visible crack but this is completely stable and does not move or distract from the finish.
I have similar units and a wide range of other options in stock which can be done in this design or other colours just for you.  Typical lead time is 4-6 weeks. Please contact me for more information.

Dark Peacock Bow Front Sideboard
Dark Peacock Bow Front Sideboard
This gorgeous 1950s Beautility brand sideboard has been given a major overhaul.  The original veneer had petrified and had to be completely removed to expose the true beauty of the piece underneath. It bow-front curves gently undulate accentuating its fine figure. Once stripped down, the piece was brought back to life by painting in multiple acrylic coats of Fusion Mineral Paint's Coal Black before I applied this stunning textured vinyl wallpaper to the flat surfaces.  The design has a black base and striking colours which feature peacocks, quail and other birds as well as tulips, roses and floral motifs. To complete the piece, I have added the gorgeous handles from Anthropologie.  The black drawers are set off with turquoise handles and the doors have matching black handles to more subtly merge into the feature paper. This piece is truly Shabby Luxe, a piece has been luxuriously upcycled whilst keeping its vintage charm intact. Dimensions: 1220mm wide x 490mm deep (at max curve) x 565mm high. The piece has been finished and graded for light domestic use (e.g. display and storage purposes) standards but if you wish to use it for a more arduous application (e.g. bar or serving area) then I would recommend adding a glass top.  A glass top template will be included with your purchase for you to source locally or please contact me for an upgrade price.

‘Golden Pineapples’ Display Unit
‘Golden Pineapples’ Display Unit
Golden Pineapples adorn this vintage glass display case in abundance!  It would look truly stunning in a bedroom filled with soft toys or stylish high heels as well as in a lounge or dining room with the more traditional glassware, china or cocktail accoutrements! Hand-stencilled onto the backboard inside are a set of stunning, staggered gold pineapples. A switch operated LED strip light that conforms to all UK electrical safety standards has been installed inside filling the unit with an extra pop of light when turned on.  This means that, in the evening (or in a dark corner during the day), the contents will positively sparkle when displayed on the replacement polished glass safety shelves!  The light also illuminates the cut glass art deco pattern on the doors making this little beauty a real feature piece your friends won't be able to help but admire. A cream coloured base paint has been carefully applied and then seriously distressed to reveal the original dark wood underneath.  It has then been sealed with an old-fashioned varnished poly topcoat which has been allowed to develop a natural yellowed patina. On the top trim, I have added a raised gold pineapple border detail which is subtle but as a stylish textural element to the piece. All in all, this piece is bang on trend but seems totally original and natural which will suit lovers of shabby chic to a tee. Dimensions: 91cm wide x 33cm deep x 111cm high. As this is a preloved piece with a strong distressed finish, please examine all the photos carefully before purchase! If you want something this is a more modern factory finished look (or a different size) then please get in touch and I can source / create something in the Golden Pineapple design just for you!

Colourful Birds & Roses Bedroom Set
Colourful Birds & Roses Bedroom Set
This delightful vintage shabby chic bedroom set is a wonderful example of what can be done with 80s/90s pine furniture.  The surfaces, edges and feet of each individual piece are similar but not identical making it a lovely little harlequin set - one that matches without being matchy matching! Each piece has been sanded, undercoated and then hand painted with two coats of Fusion mineral paint in their 'Limestone' colour way which is a soft cream. They have then been decoupaged on all the flat surfaces with this incredible roll of wallpaper featuring roses and birds in dramatic colours on a cream background - sadly this colourway has now been discontinued :(  The edges of the decoupages have been torn rather than knife cut and lightly sanded giving it a very relaxed and romantic feel. The units have been finally been sealed with multiple layers of a resin based sealer to make them as practical as they are beautiful. Multi-colour ceramic pumpkin handles with gold detail lines on a bronze base and a red drawer liner complete this country cottage shabby chic look. Dimensions Bedside table 1: 425mm wide x 312mm deep x 533mm high Bedside table 2: 429mm wide x 313mm deep x 537mm high Chest of drawers: 827mm wide x 376mm deep x 731mm high Please note: these are vintage pine units which are in good but not perfect condition (see drawers of one of the cabinets) but I believe this just makes them even more charming and individual - a shabby chic enthusiast will just love them.
