Sweet French Fancy

By Karen Oshaughnessy Emporium K, Wicklow Ireland, Owner at Emporium K at Emporium K in Dunlavin, WW, IE

This beautiful petite writing bureau was looking for a new style for her new life. After stripping and priming, I painted it in a custom blend of Queenstown Grey and linen to create this lovely light grey. The interior was stained with antique oak and I replaced the leather writing leaf. I then stenciled the drawers with a floral print stencil in Argentine pearl. I added a moulding to the drop leaf and painted this in Argentine pearl also as well as the edges. The bureau was then sealed using High Performance Top Coat
