Dark Blue Bureau Desk

Last week I had a delighted customer and it really struck home the best part of being a furniture painter. Helping people fall in love with their surroundings again. Megan lives in a small one bedroom apartment and as such only has a few pieces of furniture. She wanted them all to be pieces she absolutely loves so she asked me to paint a small oak bureau desk. I showed her a few colours and she decided on my dark blue finish.  The piece turned out beautifully and Megan was just thrilled.

This is the bureau before - nice oak but Megan wanted a pop of colour.

I think the handles are so lovely. They were nailed in rather than screwed in so I had to paint carefully around them. Always a bit of a pain and more time consuming but I managed to not get any paint on them.

I just making people happy with their new furniture. So nice to be part of that transformation.

have a great day

  1. I love the blue but the beautiful motif disappears - I'd use some rub n buff to bring it out....
