This tall Bureau with Bookcase is in fact shortest of all bureaus we were working on, it is just above 180cm. That make its cute and handy, will fit in most empty spaces of your bedroom or living room.
It is painted with Annie Sloan’s ‘Old Ochre’ and mix of ‘Chateau Grey’ and ‘Original’ (1:1), and protected with couple of layers of clear acrylic varnish.
On the back of bookcase, and on the deskotop’s back wall (behind pigeon holes) we stencilled lovely pattern provided by Louise Panes (you may want to check other stencils she sells on eBay).

Attention to detail
All our furniture are distinguished by attention to detail. We put a lot of effort to be sure that all small parts of our work will not spoil the overall result. That is why we, for example:

  • changed the felt in desktop support;
  • painted internal part of bookshelf doors;
  • painted and detailed finished internal part of all drawers;
  • cleaned and polished desktop’s brass hinges and lock;
  • all drawers edges and rear top of the bureau is painted with the utmost care;

(check the images with ‘Attention to Details’ marks on them)

This Vintage Shabby Chic Bureau with Bookcase was painted with Annie Sloan’s ‘Old ‘Ochre’ and mix of ‘Chateau Grey’ and ‘Original’ and gently distressed along leading edges. After that it was covered with three layers of Colron’s acrylic non-yellowing varnish, so it is safe to wipe with a dump cloth.
