My hand painted french furniture in situ

I love seeing where my furniture ends up, especially when it's beautiful french furniture that I was honoured and thrilled to paint. I recently visited a client's new house and she owns three pieces that I've painted. Two were custom pieces that she found and brought to me for painting and the third she purchased from me. 


Actually I'm not sure I ever blogged about this lovely demilune french cabinet. I don't even think I have a before photo but it was extremely shiny. I painted it in ASCP French Linen. I sanded it a lot and it is so smooth and lovely.  Here is the cupboard before hand. I bought it relatively cheaply because it had a big chunk out of the door. I fixed it with builders bog and painted it.



Sam has beautiful taste and a lovely home. It's such a thrill to see my painted furniture in such a gorgeous home.


Details of this lovely sideboard can be found here.

These photos were taken three days after they had moved into their new home so I was so impressed with how quickly Sam had unpacked and got the house looking gorgeous.


The third piece is a desk that will live in the guest room which wasn't ready so I'll just share the photo when it was at my place below.



I thought I'd also share some photos of the lovely spring trees around Lilyfield. I love this time of year. Still loving the early morning runs. I'm slowly getting better. Slowly but surely.




Enjoy your day

  2. Hi Fiona - Your furniture pieces are always so beautiful! I'm captivated by those gorgeous trees. That purple flowering tree is just so breathtaking. We don't have anything like that here in Canada. Just curious what type of tree is it?
