Vintage Shabby Chic Chest of Four Drawers

This Shabby Chic Chest of Drawers is quite vintage, comes from 1930s. When I first saw it I fell in love with its details; the carved slat at the top and the pull handles are simple yet so beautiful.
For long time we couldn’t decide whether to paint it or not, it was so charming as it was. But, after all, we end up with a piece you can see at the pictures. Read More

Vintage Shabby Chic Bureau Writing Desk with detachable Bookcase

This Shabby Chic Bureau is a twin sister of the one we sold not that long time ago, just have a look here: Vintage Shabby Chic Bureau no. 09. Well, it is almost-twin-sister. She is a bit smaller. But just a bit.

The biggest difference? The bookcase is detachable. You can have it either a normal way, on the top of the bureau, or hang on the wall; we fixed hangers in the back. Just have a look at the pictures.
