New in this week is this stunning timber and pressed tin dresser . Great storage and the perfect piece for the kitchen and the colours are gorgeous. At "Nook Vintage" we favour timbers more than over polished metals and this is a winner in that department.

There she stands ! Majestic and breathtaking ! We at Nook Vintage love our timbers and are getting well know for our workbenches.So pop in this week to view this and measures 1875 x 660 x 955.
One of the best we have seen and we are confident you will agree. Thats all !
Nice chunky legs set on castors for ease of movement. A shelf on the bottom for all your storage and small drawers on either side. This workbench needs a kitchen or a large space to stand alone. Work equally well as a shop counter and will suit a retailler too. So many uses and so prcatical as well as handsome. Love the patina in a chocolate timber and nicely worn over the years.
I know ! I know ! I say it everytime but this really is one of my favourite finds !! Yep I am annoying but this time may be my last comment like this as workbenches like these are not easy to source.Yes there are plenty out there to view and we have a few currently in the store and then there is this one !
In this week and these one off treasures are getting hard to source but we still manage to hunt them down !
These timber drawers would suit an artist or anyone with an interest in this field as the drawers are the perfect size for storage of maps,canvasses etc.
On castors for ease of movement and this is one of a kind !
Expressions of interest taken and POA ..Be quick for these ladies and gents.
Just sourced these absolutely stunning timber map plan drawers with indented numbers on the right hand side of the drawers. Perfect for the office or warehouse and would command a large space as needs to stand alone.Enjoy the visuals and in this week so expressions of interest taken. POA.
