A charming vintage writing bureau, with an abundance of French shabby chic style.

Hand painted in milk chalk paint and painted inside with byzantine chalk paint. The drop down desk work area has been papered and sealed for protection. The whole piece has been waxed for protection and given a distressed finish.

This lovely bureau sits on decorative legs, offering a lovely place to sit and ponder whilst perhaps penning a letter to a loved one.

The bureau has a pull down desk. Inside the desk are lots of useful pigeon holes and a sweet little drawer. Underneath the desk are two larger drawers, with the original pulls having been replaced with pretty flower shaped pulls. Any of the drawers would be big enough to house a laptop. The bureau comes complete with a working key.

All in all this is a lovely piece of furniture that would not only make a great addition to an office, but would also look right at home in a sitting room, dining room or bedroom.

As with most of my pieces, a true vintage find, it is in really good vintage condition but does have a history of use and therefore has the odd knock, scratches and blemishes, all adding to the overall charm and authenticity of this lovely one off piece. Painted items are hand painted so may have brush marks and imperfections.

Please bear in mind that all items are 'one offs' and never repeated.
