Vintage Oak Jacobean Style Sideboard Painted and Upcycled

This heavily carved Jacobean style sideboard dresser dating from (probably) the 1930s has been brought out from under it’s dark varnish sombre cloak and is now ready for a new home.

I have used a layering technique of multiple paint colours to lift the large, drab piece and showcase the wonderful carving, lightening and brightening it to now enhance a lounge or hallway. A real statement piece of upcycled furniture. I have researched this sideboard and I have not found an identical one anywhere out there.

The interior has been refreshed in Sacred Sage with a gentle ornithological paper lining the drawers and door insides. And the top has been stripped, sanded, waxed, and buffed to reveal its oak glory.

This all renders this sideboard unique – you will not find another.

It is practical, stylish and definitely a statement piece of furniture.

The sideboard measures 152 cm wide, 96 cm high (115 cm including upstand) 50 cm deep.
