Vintage Writing Desk – tall Bureau with Bookcase in Shabby Chic Style
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.

Depth of bureau with desktop closed: 44cm;
Depth of bureau with desktop open: 76cm;
Depth of bookcase: 20cm;

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.
With Graphic Transfer.

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
