Restored Vintage Oak Sideboard
This beautiful (and large) sideboard has been given a full makeover. It is made of solid oak so is extremely solid and heavy.

The outer surfaces of the unit have been waxed with natural beeswax to highlight the natural grain of the wood. The two outer sections originally had leadlight glass doors which were smashed and cracked beyond repair. These doors have been removed and the insides of the sections have been painted in a crisp cream shade, giving the unit a modern twist (all hinge and lock holes have also been filled so you would never think there should be doors there). Other sections have been painted in satin black as a contrast.

The insides of the centre cupboard and the bottoms of the drawers were looking rather worn so have been lined with paper, making them clean and usable.

The lovely metal handles are original (polished up) and feature a decorative Arts & Crafts motif.

There were some large water marks on the top (probably from years of potted plants sitting on the top) and these will not come out. There is also a small strip of wood missing from the centre of the bottom doors. Whilst not too noticeable, this does mean that one door does not always stay fully closed, Other than these slight imperfections (which give the sideboard vintage character), the unit is in fabulous condition for its age. There is no borer.

Measurements as follows:
Height - 95cms + a further 7cms for the decorative backboard
Width - 137cms
Depth - 50cms

This is a beautiful vintage item with a modern twist and would look great in any vintage or modern décor (these large, flat topped sideboards are also great as TV units!).

Please be aware that this item is very heavy. You will need a large vehicle or trailer to transport it and someone to help you load it.
