Vintage Upcycled Georgian Style Serpentine Fronted Sideboard by Bevan Funnell

Vintage Upcycled Georgian Style Serpentine Fronted Sideboard by Bevan Funnell


A beautiful vintage mahogany Georgian style serpentine fronted sideboard by Bevan Funnell with two drawers including cutlery drawer flanked by two cupboards, one with a slide out shelf for bottles and glasses. 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 and I have relined the cutlery drawer with a sumptous ash grey velvet. 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! 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 major damage to note apart from the customary minor knocks, dents and cracks which are to be expected with antique and vintage pieces. Unfortunately the keys to the cupboards have been lost and are no longer lockable. I'm not a 'furniture flipper'; I don't churn out masses of pieces of painted furniture; I spend huge amounts of time and care on each piece and 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.
