I have been busy recently upcycling a bureau and thought it was the perfect time to show it on the blog. so here is what happened when my Sister and I were asked to style and decorate a guest bedroom for Laura Ashley, in which you can see the big reveal by clicking the link, we both jumped at the chance. It was the perfect opportunity to create together, photograph and upcycle that overdue family heirloom which would make the perfect writing desk. A Vintage upcycled Bureau.
My sister did most of the work but I did source these gorgeous drawer pulls to enhance the Bureau’s finished effect! We wanted to obtain a vintage look and my sister did the bulk of the work including sanding down the bureau before painting it. We agreed to just give the Bureau one coat of paint. I really like the shabby look and feel. Our upcycled bureau had really come together.
