Antique Painted Oak Chest of Drawers bedroom storage shabby chic

Newton Abbot, Devon £155.00
32 days ago


This is a lovely piece which dates to around 1925, made of oak this compact chest of drawers is perfect for a small bedroom.

The chest began life as a dressing chest and the top would have once housed a mirror, the front is fitted with three narrow drawers which have attractive metal drop handles and very clean interiors.

The chest sits on small tapered block legs which are finished at the base with old metal castors.

This piece has been well looked after, bought from a lady in our village whose family have owned it from new.

I have painted the base in eggshell paint very similar in colour to Annie Sloans 'French Linen', the colour is a beautiful earthy grey which is quite elegant and vintage looking. The paintwork is solid colour and has been distressed for a gently aged look. The finish has been waxed well to provide protection to the paintwork which will age gently over time.

The top of the chest has been sanded back to the natural wood and waxed well for a durable finish which has a nice sheen.


This piece is in solid structural condition with some small marks and knocks here and there. The top has two small filled dowel holes towards the back and two lighter areas where the mirror once sat. There are old inactive wood worm holes to the back, mainly on one side, these have been treated as a precaution.

Generally in beautiful refurbished condition.
