Vintage White Chest of Drawers

I've been missing in action - keeping busy with painting and also some other work (you know and life in general) but just not managing to update here. Thanks for the prompts to blog again. I have finished a lot of furniture recently and will share it this week. First up is a very special piece of vintage furniture - it was my mother's and also mine when I was a girl. It badly needed refinishing as the varnish was all scratched so I did a lot of sanding :)

Painted in a beautiful white chalk paint and waxed for a smooth finish, these Edwardian drawers are for sale. It pains me a little to part with them but I don't have a perfect spot and I'd rather someone else have them and treasure them.  Just perfect for a baby's or little girl's room. 

 Dimensions are 90cm wide, 45cm deep, 110cm tall. 

The drawers all slide well and the tops little drawers are just perfect for jewellery or hair bands etc. I am pretty sure these drawers are cedar. Solid timber and very well made. Pick up from Lilyfield or I can arrange local delivery or work with your courier.

If you are interested in purchasing or inspecting please call Fiona on 0405766445.

thanks xx


  1. Hi Fiona,
    These are so pretty! It's very hard to part with beautiful things like this; I don't know how you're doing it!

    Can I just ask..... did you cut down the timber posts, which would have held a mirror, and add the finials? I often see dressing tables with no mirror, and this looks like the perfect solution! Much better than removing them altogether. It really is a beautiful touch and looks completely suited to the piece.
    Thanks Fiona,

    1. hi Liz - this one never held a mirror. My mother had it for her whole life as is.If it did have mirror holders i would just completely remove them like i did recently on an oak dresser. As to how i'm getting rid of it, I'm just pragmatic :)
      cheers fiona
