Welcome to my listing for this Beautiful Trunk/Ottoman/Coffee Table/Toy Box. Unlike flat pack, this is a lovely solid piece of furniture made from solid wood, I believe this to be antique pine.A lovely and very well constructed item which I have lovingly restored. I have given this several coats of the brand new shade from Annie Sloan's chalk paint range, called Svenska Blue, a very nice grey blue which suits every decor. I then distressed the box lightly and applied clear wax and a little dark wax to protect and add character. The hinged chest top has been sanded back to bare pine and then dark waxed in several layers. The waxing also helps to ensure that this is protected and endurable for everyday use, so can easily be used as a coffee table if desired. There are some knocks and dents to this piece which we've retained to add character. Inside the box, I've painted in Farrow & Ball Estate eggshell in shade Wimborne White to freshen up the interior, and you can see from the pictures that this also has a separate lidded compartment inside, very handy for small items.
There is a keyhole to the front of both the main box and the inside compartment, but there are no keys and no actual locks. A very useful and attractive chest with plenty of versatility. Can be used as a blanket box, a toy box, a window seat or a good sized coffee table with a large amount of storage inside, you decide! This has been painted to the back also, as shown in the pictures. I say this many times, but this really does look better than the photographs depict, and viewing is welcome and highly recommended by appointment, just message me (Leanne).

I have been refurbishing furniture for some time now, and I always endeavor to make sure all my items are of the highest standard as is possible with preloved items. If they're not, I will fix, sand, nail and mend until they are suitable for purpose.
I spend a lot of time preparing, so that the finished article is as perfect as can be. I always remove all fittings (handles, hinges etc), whenever possible, and mask areas for a clean finish.
If I cannot repair, I will always describe any obvious flaws with as much accuracy as I can. Of course, there may well be a few tiny drips and brushmarks as I do paint every item by hand, no spray paints are used here! I try to use the original fixings, but if this is not possible, I will source good quality replacements.
I love vintage furniture, and try to keep all of the old charm and originality of each piece whilst making sure it is brought up to date to fit with all types of homes, whether it is a small country house, traditional, large farmhouse, quaint french shabby or a modern semi : The light neutral shades bring new life to old furniture, and will brighten up any corner of your home. As we all know, preloved items are not always perfect though, and any dings and dents add to the charm, and some are even intentional for the'shabby chic' look. I like to use Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell as I find it gives a very smooth and professional finish, and of course it has a wonderful range of subtle colours to choose from, but have recently moved onto the acclaimed Annie Sloan also, to give my items a varied feel and to appeal to everyone's taste, I love them both!
