I have painted a number of bureaus now and this one in particular was a delight as I discovered three secret drawers I didn’t know existed.
On opening the bureau lid I realised that what I thought was carving detail was in fact two pull out drawers, genius.
Then when I opened the small inner cupboard door the top piece that again I thought was simply detail also pulled out to reveal a drawer.
The perfect piece in which to store passports, important documents or love letters!
I know, I know, who sends love letters anymore?
Anyway I chose Nearly Black chalk paint for the exterior and Nautique for the interior.
A beautiful contrast in colours.
Waxed and lightly distressed finish.
