A unique, eye-catching bureau that will sit beautifully in most colour schemes due to its subdued exterior.
However, when opened it reveals a big, bold and brilliantly beautiful interior.
Fuschia pink & gold paintwork with the back panel, writing pad and small internal drawer having a dark moody floral finish that matches the interior paintwork.
The contrast is striking and this is definitely a statement piece that will be a talking point.
This has been painted in a silk acrylic dark grey paint (external) and a fuschia and gold acrylic paint (internal). Finished with Polyvine wax finish varnish for protection.
This piece was certainly a labour of love as preparation was lengthy to ensure a long-lasting finish. It was cleaned, sanded and, cleaned again. Only then was the surface ready for the first layer of paint. In all, this piece had four layers of paint which were followed by a couple of layers of dead flat varnish to ensure it has the best protection. The handles were also treated with the same care to produce a beautiful gold finish.
This bureau has three dovetailed exterior drawers and a petite interior drawer with several pigeon holes sitting alongside. This could be used as it was intended as a desk. Equally, it could be used for storage in a hall or it would look fantastic in a bedroom as a dressing table due to the amount of storage for makeup or jewellery.
