This is a beautiful vintage bureau. A quality piece of furniture.
Ideal as a laptop/paperwork desk or a dressing table.
This bureau has been lovingly, personally up-cycled:
Chalk painted in Annie Sloan 'Old Ochre' (cream), subtly distressed, then finished with 2 coats of Satin Varnish for extra protection and durability. The back of the bureau has been fully painted and varnished.
The chest section has:
Three large drawers at the bottom
Pull-out lid supports
One slightly smaller drawer at the top (internally all the drawers are very clean and smooth)
Original brass drop handles with circular back plates (I have left these fairly tarnished as I think it adds to the character)
The bureau section has:
Plenty of pigeon holes (polished with Annie Sloan dark wax)
One small drawer
Green leather writing insert (this is well-used and has quite a few marks)
Lockable with two original keys
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, but I'm no expert. This piece is unusual and unique.
