Victorian pine chest / blanket box / coffee table (Country / Coastal / Vintage)
The Blueberry Hare Workshop produces personally selected one-off pieces of furniture, professionally refurbished, restored and hand-painted to a very high standard. Our paint finishes intentionally show specific brushstrokes and minor imperfections which retain and further enhance the original character, yet produce an "as new" finished item. This lovingly and painstakingly restored genuine Victorian pine chest, comes complete with two internal'candle drawers' and vintage black iron handles and hinges. It's the perfect size and height for use as a stylish coffee table, storage trunk or blanket box. This piece was rescued from an old joiners shop and looked to be in bad shape as it was splattered in paint and wood stain, with decades of hard use. Originally we planned to restore and repaint it in our usual Blueberry Hare style, however, as we began to strip it back, we uncovered the warn honey colour of the antique pine and spotted the beautiful detail of the perfect dovetail joints and the old iron hinges and handles, and quickly realised it was too lovely to paint. We've completely re-sanded the exterior whilst preserving the aesthetic aspects of its 100 or so years of use and historic repairs.
It was then given 2 coats of Annie Sloan'Clear Wax' and polished to a soft sheen. The hinges, handles and even the screws have been cleaned, waxed and brought back to life. The interior has been cleaned and treated with liquid diamond wax. The original candle drawers were missing so we've made 2 new ones from vintage reclaimed pine.
