Vintage Scandinavian Pink Bureau

by Chloe Kempster

This original 1940s bureau has been given a stylish and sympathetic makeover by Chloe Kempster.

Vintage style bureau painted by Chloe Kempster with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan in Scandinavian Pink and aged with Dark Wax

Chloe Kempster transformed this plain bureau into a stylish Scandinavian Pink statement piece. Inspired by the traditional colours found in much Swedish furniture, Chalk Paint® in Scandinavian Pink is fast replacing the trending millennial pink as the colour of choice for interiors!

Chloe started by painting the bureau in a mix of Chalk Paint® in Scandinavian Pink and Old White, for a slightly peachier colour. Once dry, Chloe used Dark and Clear Chalk Paint® Wax around the edges and detailed parts of the bureau, to create depth and interest. She painted the inside shelves with Graphite to create a strong contrast of colour and left a little of the original wood showing, as a nod to this vintage piece’s origins. Finally she used Clear Wax all over to seal and protect her paint work.
