Painted Upcycled Blue Antique Blanket Box / Trunk / Chest

Painted Upcycled Blue Antique Blanket Box / Trunk / Chest


A true one off, this is a large and heavy handsome antique trunk standing on little bun feet with raised detailing on the two front panels. It benefits from two drawers which I have lined with a beautiful paper. It has been carefully sanded, restored and hand painted externally in Farrow & Ball's deep and dramatic 'Hague Blue' Modern Eggshell. Modern Eggshell is a satin 40% sheen, not a matt or chalk finish. This piece would be a fabulous addition to a bedroom, landing or indeed any contemporary room as a blanket box or toy trunk.


This piece is in very good 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. Locks can seize and drawers may stick; these are part of the charm of antique pieces of furniture. If you're looking for a brand new prefrabricated item in mint condition or a fine antique then my pieces aren't for you! If you are, however, looking for a unique, one off antique or vintage piece with charm, character and a story to tell then you've come to the right place! I don't just slap on a coat of chalk paint on my pieces and call them upcycled - each of my pieces undergo 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 3/4 coats to ensure a high quality finish.
