This is a useful country style dresser or 'housekeepers' cabinet which dates to the late 20th century, it is solid, heavy and well made from reclaimed pine.

The dresser is traditionally styled with open shelves to the top set over two panelled doors. It is ideal for use in a lounge, dining room or kitchen, perfect for books, kitchen equipment or simply for display purposes.

The dresser is set on a deep base plinth and the top is finished with graduated cornicing.

The right hand door has an aged brass knob which turns to lock the doors closed.

I have hand painted the exterior in 'Drop Cloth' from Farrow and Ball, an elegant earthy stone colour. The interior of the top section has been painted in my own mix of pale blue called 'Faded Chambray', a shade that contrasts beautifully against the pale exterior.

The paintwork is solid colour and has been left undistressed for a clean and contemporary look.

The paintwork been waxed for protection, it has a smooth fairly matt finish.


This piece is in good structural condition with many small cosmetic marks of age and use. There are a lot of little imperfections to the wood and three small knots of wood missing in the panelled pine back.

VINTAGE HOUSE is a small family run business based in South Devon, selling quality hand painted vintage and antique furniture and quirky home wares.

Our interest in Vintage furnishings has been years in the making.  From an early age I spent time at auctions and antique fairs in South Devon with my mum, a passion inherited from my eccentric grandmother who had an eye for quality and a hoarders heart for beautiful things.

Subsequently what started as a hobby has turned into a full time business, turning the endless search for things we love into things we can sell from our home and in our online store.

We source quality antique and vintage furniture from the 19th and 20th centuries and where necessary revive and restore pieces to bring them back to life and up-to-date.

In our workshop we undertake traditional French polishing and upholstery methods, as well as self taught painting techniques to re-finish pieces that require attention.

Most of our furniture is made of solid wood, usually oak, mahogany or pine, we appreciate quality and craftsmanship and prefer selling British made furniture whenever possible.

Selling pieces that are useful and practical in the modern home, storage is always a key theme, appreciating that people need attractive items that also provide functionality.

Our painted furniture is created using eco-friendly paints and waxes from Rustoleum, Farrow and Ball and The Little Greene Paint Company.

It has always been important to us to have a 'green' business, we love the concept of recycling old furniture instead of buying new.

Quality furniture is hard to find at a reasonable and affordable price and we feel that we provide both.  The things we sell don't belong in the mass produced age of flat pack furniture, but are tailored towards an individuality that will suit both modern and vintage homes alike.
