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

Custom Makeover: Tall Edwardian Bureau with Print Transfer
Some time ago we were approached by lovely lady. She was an archaeologist looking for a tall bureau with a bookcase. We have pointed her to a classy looking Edwardian piece sitting in our Waiting Room and she accepted this!

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’.

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.

Made to order for a returning customer
There is nothing sweeter as a returning customer, I must say.
Returning customer is a living valuation of your work. And it is a positive valuation.

So we were commissioned once.
This time – what a surprise! – for a shabby chic furniture makeover, or more precisely for a re-makeover of a previously painted writing bureau to transform it into a stunning piece with a mirror and brass ornaments.

Antique Tall Writing Bureau with Bookcase made to order
As you may know, we do custom works as well. This Bureau was painted and make in Shabby Chic style to order for one lovely lady in Devon. I hope it will match her living room with a huge window with a view of the sea.

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.
