    A charming vintage mahogany writing bureau, with an abundance of French shabby chic style.This lovely bureau with its pretty Queen Anne legs, offers a lovely place to sit and ponder whilst perhaps penning a letter to a loved one. The bureau has a pull down desk which rests on struts. Inside the desk are lots of useful pigeon holes and a sweet little drawer. Underneath the desk are two larger drawers, with the original decorative brass pulls having been painted and distressed to allow some of the brass to peek through. Either of the larger drawers would be big enough to house a lap top. The desk top locks and the original working key is present. All in all this is a lovely piece of furniture that would not only make a great addition to an office, but would also look right at home in a sitting room, dining room or bedroom. As with most of my pieces, a true vintage find, it is in really good vintage condition but does have a history of use and therefore has the odd knock, scratches and blemishes, all adding to the overall charm and authenticity of this lovely one off piece. Painted items are hand painted so may have brush marks and imperfections. Hand painted inside and out in regency white eco friendly chalk paint, with the pigeon hole compartment painted in polar blue chalk paint. The pull desk top has a lovely decoupage insert which has been sealed for durability. The back of the pigeon hole compartment has been papered in pretty off white paper with a blue broken line detail. The whole piece has been waxed for protection and given a distressed finish. The bureau is made from mahogany. Please bear in mind that all items are 'one offs' and never repeated. Delivery prices quoted are for delivery to mainland England and Wales.

Vintage Walnut Writing Bureau ~ Shabby Chic furniture from My Little Vintage Attic - Morgan would love this for a writing desk!

Loving the energy of this light box/school desk. Makes it so much easier to see your art work, especially if you are drawing your designs on transparencies instead of using a printer.

perfect creamy color palette, with just a bit of orange to make things pop.

Arredato con qualche pezzo vintage ma con una filosofia che non passerà mai di moda appesa alla parete: "Live, Laugh, Love".

Good painting idea for the bureau - old white and emperor's red? Feet could be red (white right at the bottom).
