We are a local family business based in South Leicestershire with a passion for Vintage Furniture, After growing up with a mum who loved antique centres, car boot sales and thrift stores, her influence has rubbed off and 6 years ago after having my 2nd child, I decided to leave my job in retail to make my own way as a furniture dealer, also putting to good use my Fine Art Degree. We have had shops in the past however recently after becoming a mother of three; now prefer to stick to the internet as it reaches the widest audience, having said this then please do feel free to come and visit my home in Leicestershire if you would like to take a closer look at anything. Our items are sourced carefully to have something a bit special and are refurbished with care. We like an eclectic mix of styles and also play around with colour quite a lot but also try to keep wooden finishes where appropriate and possible. If you like our taste, please visit our Facebook page via www.facebook.com/maisieshousevintage & click LIKE.

Vintage Upcycled Painted 1940's Children's Tallboy Wardrobe with Lock & key
This is a great piece with plenty of vintage appeal. Made by a British maker in the late 1930's - 1940's I would say, this tallboy (in it's day referred to as a gentleman's wardrobe is a classic 1940's design) Features a lovely metal handle and a lock & key. A really good size for a children's bedroom; and has hanging space with the addition of shelving at the side. It has nice carved detail and an attractive curved door.
We have decided to paint the exterior in Farrow & Ball 'Cornforth White' Estate Eggshell, a good neutral grey-white to match any colour scheme; the interior is painted in 'Purpleheart' Intelligent Eggshell by Little Greene. This is a vibrant cadbury's purple and gives a bright pop of colour when you open the door! The handle has been spray-painted in bronze to add to the vintage look.
In great vintage condition. This piece has a key however it is a bit tricky to use so I would just use it to pull the door open if preferred.
Would look really beautiful in a children's bedroom to add a vintage touch, reminds me of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Ideal for a little princess!
The dimensions are as follows...
It would be great if you could collect this cabinet from my home in Leicestershire LE8 8AN, or alternatively I can provide the number of a good local courier who you can contact regarding a quote. (Payment would be made directly to him on delivery of the item.) If preferred, please also feel free to arrange your own courier, I can be available for pick up most of the time, all I need is a good 24 hours notice so I can arrange to be around.
Thank you for looking & hope you love this item as much as we do and please find Maisies House on our facebook page or twitter account to keep up to date with all our latest projects!
