Beautiful Vintage Writing Bureau
The inspiration behind this restoration was simply a sheet of wrapping paper, with beautiful birds in vivid, eye catching colours.
I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White and Paris Grey colours and waxed it to protect it. The drop leaf panel and little shelves inside the bureau were inlaid with maroon faux leather to add colour.
The drawer fronts were inlaid with the bird paper and protected with clear adhesive.
This ambitious project was my first restoration and took many hours of work. I love how it turned out and hope you do too.
