Industrial 6 Drawer Chest


Every piece of furniture should tell a story......please read mine!

"Once upon a time I was made by a craftsman, probably not a cabinet maker, but I was well made with dovetail joints, solid wood drawer fronts and drawer bases. To make things quick and cheaper good quality plywood was used for my sides and back. The top I am made from solid wood. Originally I would have had no paint on. Over the years I have probably stood in different houses, for useful storage, passed from one to another and then over the decades my owners thought it would be a good idea to paint me. First white and then on top of some of the white a turquoise colour which I quite liked. As the years rolled by my owners must have got fed up with me because I was banished to a garage where I was used for industrial storage and gathering dust. Then out of the blue, industrial, rustic and painted furniture became fashionable...hooray I was saved! I have now been restored, not fully of course because that would spoil all my decades of character. I have been lightly sanded to bring out all my lovely colours and bare wood and even though I have a tiny bit of damage, which you would expect wouldn't you after all these years, I am as strong and sturdy as the day I was made by that lovely craftsman. Finally I have been given two coats of rustic wax which really enhances my colours and adds protection too.

So my life starts all over again, so please somebody take care of me, enjoy me because I am a beautiful piece of furniture who deserves a good home so I can live happily ever after"

This is a one off and unique industrial chest with heavy distressing. It is very sturdy and strong with all drawers working perfectly. It has been restored in our workshop.

The chest has been painted overtime and we have sanded it back and finished it with a rustic wax to produce this finish. There is slight damage to some of the handles and minor damage to the side and back panels at the base.
