Grey Sideboards
Grey Sideboards

Let's talk about Grey sideboards because I'm working on three this month!

I have one medium bow fronted sideboard with four central drawers and a cupboard on either side in stock and ready to ship immediately - the majority of the photos are of this sideboard.  The sideboard has been updated with a matte ash grey acrylic paint and a touch up pot will be provided to keep your piece in perfect condition for years to come. The original handles are solid brass and have been restored and lacquered.  Each cupboard is closed and opened using a key and both original keys are included.  If you pop me a message after purchase, I will make you a set of custom tassels for the keys in up to two colours.  Theinterior has been lightly used by its previous owner so I simply cleaned and polished it with lemon polish so it smells gorgeous! Measurements: 1305mm wide x 870mm tall x 350mm / 455mm deep (end / middle). If this isn't the one for you then read on rather than buying now! I've shown 'multi-pix' of other grey sideboards that I've worked on.

My grey sideboards are based on quality preloved pieces - mostly reproduction and exceptionally crafted veneered items. They are usually stripped back to the bare wood before priming, undercoating and painting in grey matte acrylic paint and the shade can vary from a pale almost white grey, through mid greys, blue greys and darkest greys.  An additional topcoat in matte, satin or gloss can also be added. The original handles are either replaced or refinished in stunning gold chrome - or your own choice of finish like antiqued brass or silver chrome.  The insides are cleaned and polished.

All my pieces are upcycled and use preloved furniture and whilst they have been given a complete upgrade, there may be still be limited signs of their vintage provenance. Please review all photos before purchase - thank you! Any type of sideboard style or size can be sourced for you. I hold a number of sideboards in stock and can source something to meet your requirements.  You will receive a number of options to choose from before I ask for a deposit and we proceed with the makeover.  Prices shown for small, medium, large and bow front units are for illustration purposes only with the final price depending on the costs of raw units and exclude the handle prices which are added at cost price. The sideboard needs to be washed, prepared  and any repairs made before we start.  It will then be undercoated in a suitable undercoat and spray painted with multiple coats of a grey acrylic paint.  I will finish in an ultra matte, satin or gloss topcoat to make sure that it stands up to everyday usage. The interiors of sideboards not usually touched (apart from cleaning) but these could also be painted and refinished for an additional fee. How about a pop of turquoise or mustard yellow? #challengeglasshousegirl to come up with something stunning! Please contact me for more information and a no-obligation customised quotation.

OOOH... Navy Blue sideboards. One of my most popular upcycled items!

I have one small bow fronted sideboard with two drawers over two cupboards in stock and ready to ship immediately.  The sideboard has been updated with a matte navy acrylic paint and a touch up pot will be provided to keep your piece in perfect condition for years to come. The original handles have been refinished in bright gold and the interior has been lightly used by its previous owner so I simply cleaned and polished it with lemon polish so it smells gorgeous!

My navy blue sideboards are created using high quality vintage piece.

The original handles are either replaced or refinished in stunning gold chrome.  The inside are cleaned and polished.

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. As this piece is preloved and upcycled, please can you carefully review all the photos before purchase - thank you! I have similar units and a wide range of other options in stock which can be done in this design just for you.  Typical lead time is 2-4 weeks. Please contact me for more information.

Black & Pale Yew Sideboard / Dresser
Black & Pale Yew Sideboard / Dresser
This gorgeous small sideboard has been given a real Glasshouse Girl transformation - you can read all about it on my blog. Starting its journey as a yellow varnished piece, once the varnish came off the yew veneer revealed its true beauty. The body has been painted (inside and out) in a black matt acrylic paint giving it an edgy modern finish. Whilst the top surface, drawer fronts and doors have had a cream tinted oil applied and been buffed until it feels like velvet.  This oil product was originally developed for floors so its incredibly hardwearing. The handles and hinges have been refinished in brass, a nod to its traditional styling. This small sideboard would be lovely in a dining room or kitchen but would work equally well as a tv stand or bedroom storage. Dimensions: 1080mm wide x 460mm deep x 790mm high. I can source similar yew wood pieces including dining room sets, larger sideboards and bedroom furniture if you would like something similar.

Sale Game of Thrones Inspired Cocktail Bureau
Game of Thrones Inspired Cocktail Bureau
This stunning carved solid teak bureau would make the perfect cocktail or drinks cabinet as well as providing loads of storage space.  A unique statement piece, you can just imagine the conversations you could have with family and friends around it whilst you prepare drinks and cocktails! It's practical and stylish - what more could you want? The piece has has moved past its dark 1980s style days and brought bang up to date with a grey and white drybrushed finish.  This makes it look like stone or metal which changes depending on the light. I've tried to show you this in the photos. The front of the bureau and drawer fronts feature a carved birds and blossom design which is really brought out by the finish.  This is what really inspired me to give it the edgy finish as it was so reminiscent of the Game of Thrones intro.  The flowers align it with the House of Tyrell but you won't be disappointed if you are feel you're more of a Stark, Lannister, Baratheon or Targaryen.  Even if you've never watched GOT and couldn't care less where the inspiration came from, you'll still love its statement modern style! The interior has been painted in sleek black whilst the drawers have been lined with a grey / black snakeskin print paper with just a touch of glitter which adds that little bit of extra style and surprise when open. The original oriental base has been replaced with some simple solid oak 'L' shaped corner feet which brings the styling bang up to date. Dimensions: 460mm deep x 890mm wide x 1010mm tall. Incredibly heavy, this piece will need a specialist courier so please contact me for a full quote before purchasing.
