This beautiful writing bureau has been fully restored to a professional standard. Hand painted in organic furniture paint of a vibrant colour to bring it into the 21st Century as a modern working or studying area with ample storage space.

With barley twist legs, painted by hand and the solid oak wood protected using Osmo oil. This centre piece is not only stunning but perfectly functioning as a writing or study desk.

The environmentally friendly and extremely durable oil, shows off the fantastic solid oak panels and highlights the natural medullary rays in the grain of the oak wood.

Brand new solid brass hardware has been fitted all round which includes, escutcheon, lock, hinges and all drawer pulls adding to the exquisite finish.

Re finished in a 21st Century style the bureau has been given extra protection  against knocks, scuffs and spillages with a heavy duty durable varnish.

The drawers have been lined and painted on the inside with the outside waxed and eased to proved smooth opening and closing.

The lining paper depicts colourful passerine birds sitting in trees inspiring the main yellow paint colour. The pretty lining paper has also been given two coats of a clear matt varnish for protection when storing items in the drawers or using the desk area.

The inside has a modern twist. An open area exists to sit essentials or even place your favorite beverage when working.

"They are beautiful. I don’t like to match furniture and love mish mash, quirky and odd looking things lol. I absolutely love them. My house is 203 years old and is grade II listed. I think it makes an old cottage come alive and puts a modern twist on it. I love furniture that tells a story or gets people talking at a house party".

Beautiful Bedside Tables

The bedside tables are stunning! The seller was so nice and communicated extremely well, even though she was on holiday at the time I purchased! I said she didn't have to worry until she returned to the UK, but she still started to communicate with couriers to arrange pick-up of the items before her return, which I thought was lovely of her.

I'm extremely impressed with how quickly the seller arranged delivery and accommodated for dates I would be at home for the deilvery. The furniture is also stunning and arrived with no damages and well packaged. Extremely happy with the furniture bought and the seller. A small paintbrush and touch up paint was also included, which I thought was a nice touch.

Thank you so much! I love them.

Kraken Drawers

My new table arrived from PinkDotUpcycling at Upcite and omg I'm in love! I so miss being able to do this kind of thing myself, but cannot fault the work done to bring this table back to life and just look how stunning my kraken's bride is!! . Off to follow the FB groups now to see what other unique pretties I can find! Technically a lamp table, but us three being shorties means it will work just fine for crafting, science experiments etc. . . Only opened up to protect the artwork and a table cloth!.
