Bedside Tables and A pretty Courtyard

Good morning my friends! My kids have both left early for school so I thought before I get stuck into work, I'd share some recent pieces.


Firstly I wanted to show you Kim's courtyard. She recently bought a lovely ornate coffee table that I painted had white using a paint that is perfect for outdoors. Kim has used the coffee table to create a very pretty outdoor setting. The chairs are from Kmart, how nice do they look? Seeing this setting makes me wonder why I didn't keep the table myself. I could sit there and drink coffee all morning :)

These bedside tables that I finished yesterday are pine and not particularly old but I liked their shape, especially the beveled edge to the drawer front.

These have been painted in a very pale grey that I mixed using ASCP Chalk Paint and I've waxed and buffed till they shine. Lots and lots of sanding on these to get a beautiful smooth finish.
Sometimes simple things are the best.

Pick up Lilyfield


I have some other pretty pieces coming up later today (listed tonight on IG and Facebook). I love these pieces together and think you could create a room around them.  Pieces like these really thrill me as you see the details emerge as you add paint. When they were dark timber you couldn't appreciate any of that scrolliness (I'm sure that's a word!)
These only have one coat of paint on them below but as soon as I finish typing this post, I'll be starting work on them again.
