About the Piece:

This retro chest of Harris Lebus drawers has been lovingly re-imagined with some African flair, ready for its new forever home. This piece dates to the late 1960s originally.

The body and splayed legs have been painted using Bunyt's Paints in the shade Bewitched which is a beautiful navy blue colour. The drawer fronts have been decoupaged using Nigerian Anningtex waxed fabric which was bought from Zimbabwe. It has a beautiful pattern on it with pops of orange to contrast against the blue. The entire chest has been coated with Polyvine Decorators Varnish in Satin for a contemporary feel and for added protection and durability.

The original brass drawer handles have been given a watercolour effect with gold paint.

There are four drawers in the chest that graduate in depth, with the bottom two drawers being deeper than the top two.

The combination of the eye-catching African fabric, and dark blue paint colours will add a modern, contemporary feel to any room.

FINAL NOTE

All my work is refinished with care and attention to detail using good quality materials and furniture paints. I source quality pieces of furniture and bring them back to life in unique and creative ways.

As with all pre-loved furniture, they may show evidence of their past life with the occasional dent or imperfection. Major imperfections are always addressed and repaired to a high standard, but I believe small marks tell the story of the piece's history and add to its charm. As this item is hand-painted and hand-finished, it may also show faint brush marks, imperfections and texture, which I hope you agree adds to the uniqueness and character of the piece. Please also note that due to lighting, colours may vary slightly from those in the photos. Please kindly keep this in mind during your purchase.

I’ve provided as much information as I can, but do get in touch with me if you have any further questions about this lovely vintage piece.

Commissions:
If you love this item of furniture but would like it in a different colour or design, then please do get in touch with me to discuss our commission process. I am able to source specific pieces of furniture to your requirements and work with you to create a bespoke and beautiful design for your space.

"They are beautiful. I don’t like to match furniture and love mish mash, quirky and odd looking things lol. I absolutely love them. My house is 203 years old and is grade II listed. I think it makes an old cottage come alive and puts a modern twist on it. I love furniture that tells a story or gets people talking at a house party".

Hall Entry Table

I was looking for a piece to stand next to a small ornate fireplace in our 1920’s build home and kept coming back to this lovely makeover, named ‘Grace’. I’m so delighted to have bought it. Mandy took time and care in delivering it and although she emphasised the fact it was an old piece I can only re-emphasise that that is exactly what I was looking for. It is testament to her skills that she has given ‘Grace’ a wonderful new lease of life. The stencilling on the drawers is top notch; the piece is painted beautifully - including the bits you wouldn’t normally see, which I prefer. The beautifully highlighted claw feet on the bottom of the piece are a real treat to look at, and my beady-eyed art tutor/’general expert on painted stuff’ agreed Mandys’ work is superb – sympathetic to the piece and to a high standard. I know I shall enjoy having Grace grace our home for many years. Thank you Mandy.

I purchased a sowing table from you in April for my sisters birthday but wanted to send you photos when she had planted some flowers. It does look impressive.

I’m still faffing with the cabinet, getting it the right place in our lounge. Everyone absolutely loves it, my mom and sister in particular, even my 10 year old son!

Beautifully decorated drawers

Very happy with my new drawers. The colour and design is just perfect for the space. I love that I have a unique piece of furniture that’s not off the high street and that they are up cycled when I am trying to be less wasteful.
