This is a beautiful vintage bureau. A quality piece of furniture.
Ideal as a work station or a lady's dressing table.
This bureau has been lovingly, personally up-cycled:
Chalk painted in Annie Sloan 'Paris Grey', subtly distressed, then finished with satin varnish. 'Work areas' (top and inside bureau) have had 2 coats for extra protection and durability. The back of the bureau has been fully painted and varnished.
The chest section has:
One smaller drawer at top (lockable)
Two slightly larger drawers below (bottom drawer is lockable)
Original, unusual, drop handles with back plates
Keyhole on each drawer (1 is false and 2 are at a rather jaunty angle!)
The bureau section has:
Lid supports that extend automatically
Plenty of pigeon holes and one small drawer inside
Pigeon holes have been polished with Annie Sloan dark wax
Lockable with original key
This vintage piece of furniture has the odd mark, commensurate with it's age, which all adds to it's shabby chic character. I think it is oak, from early 20th Century, but I'm no expert. This piece is quirky, uneven and unique - a beautiful and practical quality piece of furniture that would beautifully adorn any room in your home.
