Painted in Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell in Shade Slipper Satin. Welcome to my listing for this Stunning Old Charm Dresser. Unlike flat pack, this is a wonderful solid piece of furniture made in solid oak wood from the furniture manufacturers of Old Charm, very renowned and respected for their high craftsmanship. With it's beautiful ornate'linenfold' style carvings to the doors plus the smooth solid oak top it's a stunning and unique piece.
I have given this dresser 2 coats of undercoat and primer, then 3 fine coats of Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell in the Shade Slipper Satin, a beautiful light neutral shade which suits every decor. I sanded back the dresser's beautiful solid oak top then buffed using a combination of soft dark waxes, which really highlights all of the natural grain and adds some depth of colour to the wood. This also helps to ensure this is protected and endurable for everyday use and provides the wood with a lovely sheen. This dresser features 4 doors and 4 drawers to the base.The drawers have the appearance of 8 drawers in total as each one is a faux double drawer. The first drawer is a green felt lined cutlery in very good condition. All drawers are dovetail jointed, solid and run smoothly. The internal area provides plenty of storage space with a shelf to each cupboard area, so plenty of options to hide all of your bits and bobs. One of the shelves is a part shelf, allowing space for taller items to be stored beside it.
This also features it's original decorative cast iron drop handles and butterfly hinges. The top section has 2 shelves, each with plate stoppers, and 2 large glazed and leaded cabinets with lights to the top, and there are also 2 fixed shelves inside each of these. The top shelf has a beautiful galleried addition and beneath the shelves you will find 3 handy spice drawers. Ornate carvings feature along the dresser's top cornice also.A very beautiful dresser which will be a fantastic addition to any home, standing at over 6 feet wide but not too high. After painting, I thoroughly waxed all over with clear wax to help protect the paint from further wear and tear.
Separates easily into 2 sections for transportation. A solid, robust and very well-made item, and if collecting I will help you load as this piece is very heavy. I say this many times, but this really does look better than the photographs depict, and viewing is welcome and highly recommended by appointment, just message me (Leanne) to arrange.

Collection is encouraged from Haverhill, CB9 7RG. I have been refurbishing furniture for some time now, and I always endeavor to make sure all my items are of the highest standard as is possible with preloved items. If they're not, I will fix, sand, nail and mend until they are suitable for purpose.
I spend a lot of time preparing, so that the finished article is as perfect as can be. I always remove all fittings (handles, hinges etc), whenever possible, and mask areas for a clean finish. If I cannot repair, I will always describe any obvious flaws with as much accuracy as I can.Of course, there may well be a few tiny drips and brushmarks as I do paint every item by hand, no spray paints are used here! I try to use the original fixings, but if this is not possible, I will source good quality replacements. I love vintage furniture, and try to keep all of the old charm and originality of each piece whilst making sure it is brought up to date to fit with all types of homes, whether it is a small country house, traditional, large farmhouse, quaint french shabby or a modern semi : The light neutral shades bring new life to old furniture, and will brighten up any corner of your home.
As we all know, preloved items are not always perfect though, and any dings and dents add to the charm, and some are even intentional for the'shabby chic' look. I like to use Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell as I find it gives a very smooth and professional finish, and of course it has a wonderful range of subtle colours to choose from, but have recently moved onto the acclaimed Annie Sloan also, to give my items a varied feel and to appeal to everyone's taste, I love them both!
