Perfect for any homework station or dressing table. This neat, bijou statement piece has been painted in a pale purple/grey with ballet pink detail reminiscent of “Mary Quant meets Orla Kiely” then finished with clear waxes and buffed to a soft sheen.

However, it is the inside where this piece comes into its own courtesy of stencils by @lottiesvintagehome. The stencils make this piece original and beautiful. They also feature subtly along the flap stay.

Classic, stylish and practical. This bespoke, tactile, feminine bureau has been upcycled using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

In true Upcycle Arcade style, this unwanted, writing desk now combines traditional build with a modern finish; standing out whilst fitting in. Not only is it an extremely functional piece of furniture, it is utterly bespoke – you will not find another. It measures 61 cm wide, 114 cm high, 47 cm deep desk closed and 84 cm deep desk open.
