Custom Painted French Inspired Bureau









I had this bureau for awhile and it was finished in a tan mix of colors with flowery designs. I probably painted this 4 different colors before deciding on this finish. But that is the beauty with paint, you can just re-paint if you do not like the results. I wanted the cabinet doors to have something a little extra. I used venetian plaster and created a textured stencil designs on the doors. I glazed them with blues and gold. The legs at the bottom have crackle added to give some dimension to the colors. I waxed and distressed, waxed and distressed with multi colors of turquoise, St. Louis Blue and Old White. Added dark wax in some areas and gold metallic on the trim. ImageImageImageImage
