Hand Painted Dressers – Shabby chic dressers and sideboards make a fantastic addition to any style kitchen, contemporary or vintage. The shabby chic style seems to have become very popular recently, as many home and design magazines feature this style regularly, and interior designers on TV are all using it for home makeovers.
Hand-painted dressers were first popular in the seventeenth century in Europe and during this period furniture was handcrafted and generally well-made. Antique or vintage furniture was usually built to last and to be hard-wearing. It is only in recent years that we have become a nation of flat-pack-loving consumers. If you’d like to get away from flimsy flat pack furniture but still find furniture that’s affordable, up-cycled or ‘pre-loved’ pieces are definitely the way to go.

Many companies now make reproduction French hand painted dressers and shabby chic sideboards. But they somehow lack the character of original vintage pieces. They are also mass-produced so if you’d like something unique in your kitchen that none of your friends or neighbors will have; go for a second-hand or antique piece of furniture. Second-hand dressers and sideboards can also be painted in any color of your choice to match your kitchen or home interior and make them even more unique to you.
