Shabby chic Dressing table vanity French chest of drawers vintage antique mirror
Welcome to The Shabby Bear Cottage, where Vintage furniture is lovingly restored to the highest standard.
This item has been lovingly handpainted in Annie Sloan's Old Ochre and finished with 2 coats of soft wax for protection. The dressing table top have been sanded back to show off the stunning grains of rustic cherry wood, which have been finished with a natural Herb and Resin oil (Similar to teak oil) to contrast the bright refreshing colour of the paint.
The dressing table has 7 drawers, with beautiful dovetailing and good storage space for their size. The mirror is very large and has a beveled edge, and has the most beautiful weathered look. It is fastened to a solid oak back. It is adjustable, and can be secured at different angles. The whole piece is then finished with its stunning original hoop hardware for a wonderful contrasting effect.
A wonderful item that will look fantastic in any setting.

As with any preloved piece of furniture, you may find some nicks or dents to the woodwork. This is to be expected and we feel only adds to the charm and appeal of the reloved, shabby chic style. As all of our items are lovingly hand painted, brush strokes may be visible, which is again perfectly in keeping with the shabby chic look.
We feel that the days of boring, factory finished, mass produced furniture are over and the era of individual, personal and charming home decor is here to stay! Please also remember - reloved furniture is the Green option! For every piece of reloved furniture purchased - another tree doesn't have to die.....
“Comfort, the beauty of imperfection, the allure of time-worn objects, and the appeal of simple practical living: These are the cornerstones of what has come to be known as the Shabby Chic style.”
~~ Rachel Ashwell, Interior Designer and founder of Shabby Chic (1989) ~~
