Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint and “Haute Couture”


Commissioned Work

What you can see in here is a Vintage Shabby Chic Bureau we made entirely to order.
Our customer has chosen a ‘raw’ vintage bureau from our Waiting Room, and we were happy to renovate it accordingly to her wishes.

This Shabby Chic Bureau was not on sale at all, therefore I do not include usual commercial part of description. Just the most important things:

Annie Sloan – ‘Old White’ chalk paint
Annie Sloan – ‘Paris Grey’ chalk paint

To give our Shabby Chic Bureau more vintage look we lined the bottom of each drawer with a prints of old fashioned butterflies, which we collect at Pinterest. Here you have link do best quality image: Butterflies

On the top we have printed a Vintage French Advert. I would love to add ‘Original’ with this description, but I cannot. Design was made by us and inspiration taken from the Internet.
The technique we used is our favourite screen printing.

Are we or are we not getting better in it?
Just have a look at the pictures.
