Small Vintage Writing Bureau Handpainted in Dusky Black

This is a lovely small example of a Edwardian writing bureau.This is an older piece and has  had a rich and varied life up to coming into our hands and being updated in a lovely coat of jet black eggshell paint by Craig and Rose. The top and drawer front has been gently sanded and oiled to bring out the beauty of the grain. This is a great piece if you haven’t quite got the room for a really big bureau but you need a really good storage solution.

Dimensions are;

Width - 73 cms 

Depth- 37 cms

Height- 94 cms


Breathing new life into vintage pieces is an important aspect of green and sustainable living! After the past difficult times I am sure there is a new revitalised move to reduce “waste” and stop beautiful “brown” furniture going to landfill.

These pieces are all preowned items, they often show the marks and scars of having a previous life

Preloved to Reloved

Preowned- this item has been preloved in the past maybe fell upon hard times but has been refreshed all ready to be reloved.

Please note that I refinish and hand-paint these items  myself . Please expect a few imperfections!

"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!.
