We are a local family business based in South Leicestershire with a passion for Vintage Furniture, After growing up with a mum who loved antique centres, car boot sales and thrift stores, her influence has rubbed off and 6 years ago after having my 2nd child, I decided to leave my job in retail to make my own way as a furniture dealer, also putting to good use my Fine Art Degree. We have had shops in the past however recently after becoming a mother of three; now prefer to stick to the internet as it reaches the widest audience, having said this then please do feel free to come and visit my home in Leicestershire if you would like to take a closer look at anything. Our items are sourced carefully to have something a bit special and are refurbished with care. We like an eclectic mix of styles and also play around with colour quite a lot but also try to keep wooden finishes where appropriate and possible. If you like our taste, please visit our Facebook page via www.facebook.com/maisieshousevintage & click LIKE.

Vintage Mahogany Annie Sloan Regency Style Bureau Writing Desk with Lock & Key

This bureau is fairly old and is based on a Georgian Style having great vintage appeal. It is made mostly in mahogany and mahogany veneer, it has a lovely design sitting on stylised feet with Georgian style metal drop handles. 
The lid pulls down to reveal multiple storage compartments, there are 2 mini drawers with a cupboard inside and 4 larger drawers underneath for extra storage. We have left some of the compartments inside unpainted to give an eclectic feel which I feel works really well.

We have decided to paint in Annie Sloan 'English Yellow' Chalk Paint, this has been waxed in our own individual way with a mixture of Annie Sloan clear and dark wax to give a smooth but rustic finish, I have then distressed the bureau to give an aged feel. The interior has also been painted to match. This vivid shade of yellow is very on trend in interiors at the moment and would add a pop of colour to your living space. The bureau would brighten up a dull study or even a student's bedroom creating an inspiring place to work. 

Bureau's are incredibly handy to use as a compact work space, particularly useful to hide away laptops and tablets when you don't want them on show such as in the lounge or in a bedroom; and this one in particular has great dimensions, ideal for a smaller room. 

This bureau is in good used condition, although please bear in mind this has had a life before. It stands really solid; all the drawers open smoothly and I have waxed the runners. Please note it still has the original working lock and key. There is the odd sign of wear and tear, but any knocks or bumps just add to the character.

It is lovely to think that something with age to it now suits modern living perfectly, a perfect solution if you need a little place to work away from the dining table which is where I often end up; and great if like me, you don't have the space for study.

The dimensions are approximately as follows...

Height 95cm

Depth 42cm

Width 60cm

Please bear in mind we are selling a vintage piece,this bureau will not be brand new and there may be some signs of previous use however we have refurbished to a good standard, we deliberately steer away from pieces with woodworm however if there is very very minor damage then in every case this will always be treated to be safe. If you do have any questions, please just ask as any delivery costs incurred cannot be refunded.

It would be great if you could collect this chest from my home in Leicestershire LE8 8AN, or alternatively I can provide the number of a good local courier who you can contact regarding a quote. (Payment would be made directly to him on delivery of the item.) If preferred, please also feel free to arrange your own courier, I can be available for pick up most of the time, all I need is a good 24 hours notice so I can arrange to be around.

Thank you for looking & hope you love this item as much as we do and please find Maisies House on our facebook page or twitter account to keep up to date with all our latest projects!
