Vintage Regency Style Painted Sideboard by McIntosh in Farrow and Ball Downpipe

Vintage Regency Style Painted Sideboard by McIntosh in Farrow and Ball Downpipe


A beautiful large vintage mahogany Regency style sideboard by McIntosh with four drawers including cutlery drawer flanked by two cupboards, each with a shelf. It has the original brass handles which I have cleaned and polished by hand (not painted over or spray painted!). Externally it has been carefully prepared and lovingly painted in Farrow and Ball's dark and dramatic 'Down Pipe' Modern Eggshell which is a dark lead grey, with definite blue undertones to it which deepen the complexity of the finish. Originally inspired by the colour used to paint downpipes and guttering, it has been embraced for use inside the home with fanatical zeal! A stunning focal point in a dark, dramatic dining room or drawing room.


The sideboard is in very good condition for its vintage age and there is no damage to note apart from the customary minor knocks, dents and cracks which are to be expected with antique and vintage pieces. Inside the cupboards some rings marks are visible. Please contact me for further photos of detail. I don't just slap on a coat of chalk or mineral paint and call it upcycled - each of my pieces undergoes a lengthy process of preparation, and restoration being painstakingly stripped, cleaned, woodworm treated if there are any signs of historic woodworm, and primed and undercoated before painting a minimum of 4 coats to ensure a high quality finish. I don't distress my pieces, they will naturally distress over time with general wear and tear, like all furniture.
