Painted antique pine chest of drawers

Antique white chest of drawers       £295 Victorian pine two over three chest of drawers in white paint and wax. We haven’t painted and distressed this; it’s been done quite a while ago and the paint has become cracked and crazed. We just waxed it to bring out the character. It’s got its original knobs and turned feet. Structurally it’s sound; we’ve been right through it and corrected any faults. It’s a classic Viccy chest with a nice feel, priced a bit lower cos it’s not stripped.   dimensions: 100cm x 47cm x 98cm high free delivery to Hastings, Bexhill and Eastbourne; approx £30 by courier to Brighton, Ashford, Maidstone, Haywards Heath, Canterbury and most of Sussex and Kent.

painted pub corner bench

painted and upholstered oak corner settle           £325 This oak corner bench came from a pub and is probably about 30 or 40 years old. We’ve painted it in a light grey and waxed it. The upholstery is not perfect; little bit stained from its previous life, but not as bad as you might imagine.. probably a steam clean would work wonders. If you really can’t live with it, it wouldn’t be hard to recover using a staple gun; the panels all unscrew easily. The back isn’t painted or designed to be seen, so this piece is best sited in a corner where two walls meet, though it could be easily covered if you wanted to use it to section off a space in a large room. It comes into three main pieces for transport. dimensions: 193cm wide (left), 191cm (right) 60cm deep, 100cm high, 50cm seat height free delivery to Hastings, Bexhill and Eastbourne; approx £30 by courier to Brighton, Ashford, Maidstone, Haywards Heath, Canterbury and most of Sussex and Kent.
