Handsome Painted Mid Century Armoire / Wardrobe in Farrow and Ball Off Black

Handsome Painted Mid Century Armoire / Wardrobe in Farrow and Ball Off Black


An elegant vintage mid century armoire / wardrobe / tallboy dating from the 1960’s with double doors by CWS Ltd Cabinet Factory (Shirley, West Midlands). It’s a lovely and light piece which is easy to transport upstairs. Inside it benefits from three shelves and a hanging rail and externally it has the original brass handles which I've cleaned and polished by hand and the original lock and key in good working order. The cabinet has been carefully sanded, restored and painted externally in Farrow and Ball's timeless and dramatic 'Off Black' Modern Eggshell and internally the base has been lined with a complementary damask patterned paper. This piece would be a fabulous storage addition to a bedroom or landing.


This piece is in very good clean condition with no damage to note apart from the minor nicks, dents and previous repairs which are to be expected with vintage and antique pieces and adds to their character. There are a couple of marks on one of the shelves - please message me for a detailed photograph. I’m not a ‘furniture flipper’; I don’t turnover large quantities of quickly refinished pieces; I spend huge amounts of time and care and on each piece and pour parts of my soul into each item. I specialise in refinishing vintage and antique furniture and I spend hours hand picking each of my pieces locally and I don’t sell anything that I wouldn’t have in my own home. I don't just slap on a coat of chalk paint on our pieces and call them upcycled - each of my pieces undergoes a lengthy process of restoration and preparation before being painstakingly stripped, cleaned, restored, woodworm treated if there is any sign of historic woodworm, primed and undercoated before painting a minimum of 4 coats to ensure a high quality finish.
