A barn find transformation to conserve a lovely piece of mahogany furniture bringing it into twenty-first century living. This is an honest transformation celebrating the history of the piece not a restoration that replaces what has been lost or destroyed.

This once beautiful mahogany early 19th Century campaign secretaire chest shows signs of a lifetime of transformations. Found in a state of disrepair having lost its secretaire, it has undergone a refurbishment to give it a new lease of life; transforming it to be a cocktail cabinet filled with vintage glassware for modern living. The cabinet consists of a chest on chest with brass carry handles, the bottom two over two section has a drawer fitted out to take a collection of wine. The upper section having lost its secretaire has been converted to a cocktail cabinet with mirror back and sides, faux leather base, gallery rail and a collection of vintage glassware. To complete the transformation the whole unit has been sympathetically transformed and French polished to maintain its patina and retain the evidence of its long life. The Victorian brass work has been polished making this a handsome addition to any home.
