Italian Beauty – Shabby Chic Makeover Part 2.

Touch the Wood
by Touch the Wood
This time we would like to present you some furniture we have done recently for our nice Italian couple.
First of all, after we have delivered the card catalogue, we put our hands on a very handsome bureau with a French twist. The piece (as all of them) was in a really good condition, made of solid wood with working locks and really cute legs.
You could say it was nice as it was before, however the couple decided to go with some painting, light colours to stand out and make the shape even softer and lighter. We agreed on greenish shade of pistachio as on outside layer, and `Old White` underneath and inside internal parts of the bureau; both colours mixed from Annie Sloan’s palette. All the pistachio parts were distressed in shabby chic style to expose ‘Old White’ from underneath.
The next one on the list was another one of a bureau`s kind although this one was completely different… and it turned up beautifully. We are really proud of the final look.

Have a look at the ‘before’ picture.
