Latest Painting Project – Vintage Bureau With Secret Drawers.

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.

Currently for sale – £425.00
