Vintage Upcycled CC41 Chest of Drawers in Farrow and Ball Down Pipe - Bedroom St
A lovely CC41 five drawer chest of drawers dating from the 1940's with the original brass drawer pull handles which I have cleaned and lovingly polished by hand (not replaced or painted over!). The wartime CC41 logo can be seen on the reverse in the photograph. The chest has been carefully restored, prepared and beautifully painted in Farrow & Ball's dark and dramatic 'Down Pipe' Modern Eggshell and on this piece looks stunning. Down Pipe 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. Internally I have lined the drawers with a fabulous ebony damask paper. A fabulous one off vintage addition for any contemporary bedroom or hallway!
This piece is in very good condition and there is no damage to note apart from the customary minor knocks, dents and cracks which are to be expected with antique pieces. I don't just slap on a coat of chalk or mineral paint on my pieces and call them upcycled - each of my pieces undergo a lengthy restoration and preparation process before being stripped, cleaned, woodworm treated if required, and primed and undercoated before painting a minimum of 4 coats to ensure a high quality finish. My pieces aren't distressed or shabby chic; they will naturally distress over time with general wear and tear, like all furniture.
