Description

A totally unique one-off upcycled 3 piece lightweight & compact bedroom suite,  rejuvenated in Bexhill-on-Sea with a sense of humour and no small amount of love  ;-)

 
From the 1960`s / 1970`s era,  it`s had some prep.work done on the original surface,  then 2 coats of primer undercoat followed by 3 coats of Farrow & Ball “Middleton Pink”,  all hand-painted,  and then been hand-waxed to seal it…..there were some small underlying marks to the wood before painting started & there are still minor inconsistencies due to the age….it is, after all,  nearly 50-years old.
 
The paper is a truly wonderful original 1930`s French Children`s Wallpaper (it is not a modern copy) and the artwork is fabulous,  all from a very innocent time.  Working with paper almost 80 years old has been a challenge,  but I soldiered on  and am pleased with the result.  
The paper has been sealed with non-yellowing matt varnish
 
Being as old as it is, there are colour variations and the edges are a slightly darker colour than the rest….it is not a paper with a `uniform` look.  I`ve also left the edge strip on each side,  as this has “Fabrique en France” and guide arrows printed which I think all adds to the look.  
 
All drawers are clean & tidy,  and the runners have been waxed.  One of the black parts of one knob on the chest had broken, but this has been glued.
 
The mirror on the very sweet little dressing table has slight age-related marks around the edge where the small clamps hold it onto the backing-board.
 
I`ve left the black detail strips along with their `chromed` insert pretty much as they were on all 3 pieces,  just touching in as necessary.
 
The wardrobe will take hangers 15″ wide.
 
Dimensions are as follows:
Wardrobe >     77cm wide x 42cm deep x 176cm high
Chest of 5 drawers >   63,5cm wide x  43.5cm deep x 104.5cm high
Dressing table >   63.5cm wide x 43.5cm deep x 130cm high (to top of mirror)
 
NO TWO PIECES OF FURNITURE THAT I DO WILL EVER BE EXACTLY THE SAME,  POSSIBLY SIMILAR BUT NEVER QUITE THE SAME,  SO IT WILL BE UNIQUE ~ ~ COMMISSIONS TAKEN ~ ~ YOUR IDEAS PUT INTO PRACTICE.
