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

Custom Makeover: Tall Edwardian Bureau with Print Transfer

Shabby Chic Bureau no. 26 – Paris Blue with Butterfly Print

Hotel Papillon: Vintage Butterfly Print Transfer on Upcycled Bureau

Butterfly Print Transfer - Shabby Chic 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’.

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.

Vintage Shabby Chic Bureau with Detachable Bookcase

Here you have another tall Vintage Shabby Chic Bureau of us. This time with a bookcase.

We have feeling, that the choice of ‘hang on the wall’ vs. ‘leave on the top’ is quite valuable. That is why we fixed the top of bottom part of this piece and made it smooth as never touched by any screws, and attached brackets to the back of bookcase for hanging on any wall.
