This 3-piece nursery furniture set includes a cot, wardrobe and change table.
It was bought for us 30 months ago before our daughter was born and has some wear and tear that you would expect from being in a nursery.
Whilst we never knew the price that was finally paid, we know it was over £1000 for this set as it is bespoke and hand-made from a very exclusive boutique in London.
It is a buttermilk / cream colour with varnished wood feature tops and bottoms, feet and rails. It has a traditional feel but is very up to date with white design hand painted knobs featuring cup cake, butterfly and flower designs.
We looked in all the big stores that you go to when you want the best furniture for your first born and we never found anything as stunning or well constructed as this set and it is nothing like as good as the £800 set we bought for our second daughter (parents would not buy us another set like this one!) The wood is really solid and everything is very sturdy. It is the kind of craftsmanship that you cannot get from the imported stuff from John Lewis and M&P.
The best part is that the exposed wood is solid wood (not a veneer) and so if it gets chipped it can be quickly sanded and varnished and it is as good as new. Per below, I am including the varnish tin that was used to finish this!
This is a superb investment. You will be able to sell this for what you bought it for in a few years!
Here are the specifications:
For 120 x 60 mattress (not included)
This traditional style cot has bars on 2 sides. It is very sturdy and nothing like anything you would buy in a regular store.
The bars do not raise and lower.
The mattress base has three height positions and could easily have lasted our daughter until she was much older (she is 2 now)
Height 81 cms
Depth 71 cms
Length 133 cms
There are some scuffs on the paint and a small hole on the corner pillar where I had to make the height adjuster hole a bit bigger (the original hole was a fraction too small) but in doing this I damaged the pillar though it is not noticeable as that is generally against a wall.
There is no teething rail guards for this size of cot rail, so there are some 'indentations' (!) on the rail which have been sanded out (the benefit of wood!) and revarnished.
I am going to leave the winner of the auction with the can of child safe non toxic varnish so that they can touch up the rails when they have finished with it and eBay this on to the next person.
As the rail has been sanded out in parts, there are areas that are lighter, this will all darken in a month or so of daylight.
The cot has been disassembled into 5 parts plus screws and is very simple to put together.
This large wardrobe has a 2 door cupboard with hanging rail and internal shelf.
The door is on magnetic closers.
It also has 4 drawers - 2 small and 2 large underneath which are on very smooth runners.
The handles are all hand painted as described above.
This is in excellent condition.
It sits on wooden feet which raise it up a few centimetres.
The wardrobe separates into 2 parts (drawers and wardrobe) for easy moving. It can be further dismantled but I would suggest that the winner should plan to move it in 2 parts.
Height: 180 cms
Width: 100 cms
Depth: 55 cms
The Change Unit
This large change table has a wooden top with side and rear roll guards.
There are 3 very useful and massive drawers and a huge cupboard space.
Again, the drawers are on high quality, very smooth runners and the cupboard has a magnetic closer.
The unit sits on wooden feet in the same style as the cot and wardrobe (as seen in pictures)
The cupboard and drawers also have the hand-painted handles.
This unit is in excellent condition with only minor scuffs.
Again this could be sanded back and revarnished to sell on when the winner has finished with it, if necessary!
This unit can be dismantled but it would not be advisable as it has lots of pins in the back panel - so plan to move it in one go!
Height: 93 cms (table)
Height: 110 cms (includes rear guard rail)
Depth: 55 cms
Width: 121 cms
