Vintage Italian Furniture Upcycling – again
Furniture Makeover – Shabby Chic Italian Beauty
It has been a while since we posted first part covering our commissioned work with a charming Italian furniture. We are really happy that our client came back to us with some even more pieces to restore in a shabby chic style.
This time we would like to present you some furniture we have done recently for our nice Italian couple.
First of all, after we have delivered the card catalogue, we put our hands on a very handsome bureau with a French twist. The piece (as all of them) was in a really good condition, made of solid wood with working locks and really cute legs.
The pictures below show how the piece looked before our loving touch. Read More

We, as parents, are all relieved with a new school year beginning. Children, on the other hand, are not happy at all.

Such an idea got to us a customer with old, rusty, old-fashioned school table – with a request for makeover for 11-year old daughter.
Upcycling of Vintage Italian Furniture
Furniture Makeover – Vintage Italian Beauty
So we have been commissioned again.
This time by lovely Italian couple for a makeover of some of their charming Italian pieces. We have done part of the job so far, and would love to share with you the results.
Hotel Papillon: Vintage Butterfly Print Transfer on Upcycled Bureau
When we found this bureau it took us a while to make up a plan for the makeover.
Kat came up with an idea to use new shade of blue, which would be soft and pastel match nicely with the graphics we printed to line down the bottoms of drawers. The theme is PARIS.
We mixed together ‘Luis Blue’ and ‘Paris Grey’ from Annie Sloan’s pallet to find the perfect shade which we called ‘Paris Blue’.
Brand new vintage nest of tables (seriously).
Have a look at those mighty carvings, this nest seems like taken alive from French Royal Palace.
On Sale: Shabby Chic writing desk with French graphic print
Upcycled Furniture with music theme and print
This bureau sounds French. We upcycled it with a music theme to create a unique custom style.
The drawers are lined with music sheets and we designed handsome vintage-style logo on the cover slope. If you like design of the print you have opportunity to buy it in a form of water decal, check on our Water Decal Victorian Girl with a Violin..
Just have a look at the images.
Shabby Chic Nest of Tables with Hotel Papillon Print
Another Shabby Chic Nest of Tables of ours.
This time – again one of those less usual, with beautifully carved legs. We have made them over in French style, painting Annie Sloan’s ‘Old White’ and ‘Paris Grey’ to let floral carvings stand out.
This Shabby Chic Coffee Table made of vintage chest box is on Sale now
This Shabby Chic Coffee Table is made of vintage Trunk / Chest Box.
We removed front lid and made a shelf of it. Now it perfectly fit either in front of your sofa as a coffee table, or in your hallway as a fancy shoe shelf.
We transferred a print on the back of the piece, this time it is a American vintage advert of bicycles, way from 19th century (approx 1890). Original of this image you can find at Grahics Fairy website, this one with a small tweak to meet our needs.
If you like design of the print you have opportunity to buy it in a form of water decal, check on our Water Decal of Vintage American Columbias Bicycle Advert.

Then we were incredibly lucky to find a similar nest two days later, for literary next to nothing. Read More
