This steampunk inspired piece has been painted and embellished in an eclectic, maximalist style using a variety of media.
Gold clock stencils are scattered with 3d real metal cogs and timepieces across the sides and for the harlequin squares on the lid I used a dabbing technique of grey, pale pink and feint lilac to give the impression of an almost mother of pearl inlay.
The animal images (colourful parrot and characterful zebra!) have been blended to make them look like real portraits and I've secured a 3d snake on the centre panel to make this a one-off real statement piece of functional art
The paint is layered to show a glimmer of accent colours underneath the black in areas, to give it characterful depth and vintage authenticity.
I've decorated the back with a vintage layered look and rose decoupage so that the chest could be used as a coffee table or freestanding piece if required. The interior is a mix of paint and natural wood. The wood has been oiled to bring up the grain. The bottom is lined in a vintage dark floral paper and a hinge stay added for safety and convenience.
Varnish and wax have been used to give that lovely matte sheen and for maximum durability.
Dimensions of this example:
91cm long
43cm deep
57cm high including feet and casters.
I use low VOC professional products on all my items and all my pieces are carefully packaged and fully insured for transit.
The listing price is a good budget guide for this level of embellishment and I can create a number of themed 3d embellishments including floral, fairies, peacocks, skulls & gothic, steampunk, tropical, art deco, and more!
Delivery can be arranged via courier (which I will arrange for your as part of my service, please allow £50), or you can collect for free from Birmingham.
This piece is made to order.

"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".

Bought Vintage Bench

What a discovery I made the day I found the Upcite site. A myriad of different styles and designs on recycled furniture gives endless and unique choices. I went for a simple but beautifully restored little pew, with which I’m delighted. Thank you Upcite and may you go from strength to strength

Drinks Cabinet

This is the first time I have purchased from Upcite. I bought a gorgeous little cabinet to go in an alcove in my lounge. The cabinet has been upcycled really well but still retains its original character. It will bring a touch of mid century glamour to my lounge
The service was very good and communication throughout the process was excellent. I will certainly check Upcite in the future when looking for furniture.

Vintage Drinks Cabinet

I have just unpacked the drinks cabinet now (I was out yesterday) Please thank the delivery driver, who arrived before the designated time! (When does that ever happen!) The photos are to show that it is safe. The packaging was on point. I will send pics when the cabinet is in its new home (extension- kitchen/living room). I absolutely love it. Please let Fi know. Thank you so much for the special service that you have provided.
