a Linen Press, a hall table and a coffee table

I have a couple pf pieces of furniture to share with you today: one to sell, one custom job and one I may just keep myself.

I gave this linen press I much needed new finish. The  original red stain was very dated but the size of this cupboard is very practical and I love the internal fit out.

I painted this piece in what I call a Restoration Hardware look. You can find my instructions for achieving this look here. The inside is painted ASCP Duck Egg.  I can imagine so many use for this gorgeous piece. Kitchen/linen/bedroom/hallway storage. Dimensions are 96cm wide, 177cm tall and 38 cm deep. $485 pickup Lilyfield

Yesterday I also finished a black hall table for Kim. This table had been painted silver and was covered in kids' paint, texta and bumps. So refreshed now.

I also picked up a couple of lovely shaped coffee tables this week.  A few need painting but I've decided to keep this parquetry one for us for a while. So now I have too many coffee tables but once our new lounge room is finished I will work out which ones I actually want to keep.

I have been working with the builders getting the roof trusses ready for our house. I think the roof framing might be finished today. The roof tilers are booked for two weeks time. Sasha and I also keep the builders supplied with cake and scones. Life is too short to not have morning tea. Even on a building site. Thank goodness my kitchen is still fully functional.
