Shabby Chic Dressing Table

The other day we had a great piece of shabby chic furniture turn up and this is 'shabby chic' in its truest form. There are a lot of modern day examples of 'shabby chic' furniture and we even create some ourselves but this shabby chic dressing table is original.

 That is, its a piece of old furniture that over the years has been painted and re-painted as was most furniture was many years ago. Buying new furniture back in the day was expensive and not as affordable as it is today so most household furniture was painted.

This often happened when a room was being decorated and it was often the norm to paint any old furniture in the room to brighten it up. This shabby chic dressing table is a great example and we like this, its a good honest piece of old furniture.

 Its solid and shows signs of wear and tear plus the paintwork is discoloured, probably caused by the sunlight. There is some nice detailing and I think the correct term for them is 'festoons' which add a little 'chic' to the overall design.

This shabby chic dressing table would look wonderful in the bedroom, not only a great looking piece of 'shabby chic' but solid built to last.
