Littlehampton, West Sussex

This vintage tallboy cupboard with drawers was originally manufactured by the English company Beeanese Furniture in the 1960s. The original label and British Standard mark dated 1960 confirming its age and maker are still present on the inner top cupboard.

Get ready to add some colourful African style to your space and what could be more stunning than this gorgeous African Lady decoupage paper?!

The exterior has been hand-painted using a Cornish Milk Mineral Paint in the shades Thrift and Cornish Honey, and Harmony Paints in the shade Terracotta to give it a blended, textured finish. Metallic gold paint has been randomly added over the top to give it a subtle sheen in certain lights. A black metallic leaf has been added to her hair, which again subtly reflects the light. The cupboard and drawer edges have been finished with gold gilding wax.

Black hairpin legs and simple brass knobs have been added to compliment the design of the piece.

This vintage wooden linen cupboard comes with a removable shelf in the cupboard and two drawers, all of which have been lined with burnt orange wallpaper embossed with gold ostriches.

The exterior has been finished with furniture wax to protect the finish and make it more durable.]

Each piece comes with its own touch-up kit and instructions on how to care for your furniture.

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 we 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.

"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".

"I am very pleased with the look and quality of the sideboard and enclose a photo of it in-situ in our hallway"

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

Dawn Holding
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.

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.
