With its elegant design and meticulous craftsmanship, this French style blanket box has been given a new lease of life by contrasting the traditional wood top with a beautiful 'off white' paint creating a Gallic feel to the room it is situated in. It is both practical and versatile, and given its subtle restoration and will take pride of place in any traditional, vintage or more modern dwelling. Opening the lid, reveals a deep and commodious storage space, perfect for keeping anything from clothing and bedding in the bedroom or landing area, to shoes and outdoor accessories in the hallway. This chest would also serve well in a lounge or conservatory to store away family board games and activities creating a tidier and clutter free home. The spacious top also lends itself to a decorative display area or a place to pull up your favourite chair and perch your literature and cuppa on.
We have lovingly restored this chest by stripping the wood top back by hand to reveal its natural colour and authenticity. Several coats of clear lacquer have then been applied to bring out the intricate beauty of the grain and provide a protective and durable finish. The rest of the box has been 'keyed' and several coats of 'Old White' paint have been applied to create the alluring contrast with the authentic wooden top.
Wherever you choose to position this elegant 'chateauesque' blanket box, it is sure to become both a frequently used and much admired addition to your abode.
