Lots of painting - Lilyfield Life

There's nothing like coming home again is there. We had such a lovely holiday: a great mix of family, friends and just us on the beach. We are all tanned and relaxed and ready to face the busy lead up to Christmas. I can't quite believe I just mentioned Christmas but it'll be on us before we know it. 

I got straight back into the painting when i got home and have been pretty productive these last few days.  This old music cupboard was in a bit of a bad state. I replaced the back, added door catches, new handles, mouldings and painted it all in chalk paint, waxed and distressed it. A perfect pieces for a corner somewhere. (SOLD)

This little bedside table is so sweet and I can see it in a girl's room.  Painted in an ASCP mix - very pale grey, almost limed white with white detailing and a crown stencil (yes I almost never use stencils but that front panel was crying out for something decorative). 80h x 40w x 38d cm $165. Inside are two shelves.

I have had these two corbel shelves hanging around for a white so I painted them in a bright white leaving lots of timber showing to make the details pop. These would be fantastic as bedside tables in a small room or either side of your front door or even on a fence. Ready to hang from a screw. 43h x 25w x 18d . $120 the pair. SOLD

I'll be quite happy if they don't sell. They are so unique and I am sure I could find a spot for them somewhere.

This little art deco bedside table got some bright white paint and a turquoise interior. I also added door catches - almost always a painful task :) 

I also finished a dresser and a rocking chair yesterday. Loads and loads of white paint. I'll share them soon. I'm off now to deliver the coral secretary desk to Windsor and see my lovely client.  Always a pleasure to catch up with her.

have a lovely day
