Vintage Bureau Writing Desk from Jentique, Painted in Oxford Navy


Perfect for any home working office, this statement piece is not something you will find anywhere else. It is neat and sleek with a rustic twist has been painted in a deep dark blue/black then finished with clear waxes and buffed to a soft sheen. The depth of blue/black has been accentuated with the stripped, waxed and polished oak.

Inside there is further pairing of natural wood with deep paint which again has been waxed for protection, The drawer and door handles have been recycled from previous pieces I have upcycled. Nothing goes to waste!

Classic, stylish, quirky yet practical. This bespoke, tactile, curvaceous bureau has been upcycled using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I believe this to be a Jentique due to the styling and hinges but alas there is no badge.

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 74 cm wide, 100 cm high,41 cm deep desk closed and 70 cm deep desk open. The contents are for illustrative purposes only and are not for sale. I have shown the before pictures too for interest.
