Almost Christmas and Available Pieces

Good morning! I hope you are all feeling almost ready for Christmas. I still have a fair bit to do but am trying to quell the panic feeling inside my chest. I hate that Christmas puts so much pressure on our society (both in preparation and financially). I've been trying to make it simpler but it's not always possible when you take into account people around you who love a big Christmas and full on present giving. Oh well, I'm sure it will all be lovely on the day. I'm trying to make sure I am calm and happy and pleasant to be around :) I've also been taking some time to decorate the house in between work and kids.

The hallway looks good at least. Took me a while to scrub off paint that I've tracked from my studio on my feet. 

We are having Christmas lunch here with Phil's family then my sister and kids are joining us for dessert - after the morning at the beach. Always my favourite way to spend Christmas morning. 

I have a few pieces of furniture still available - last pieces for 2016. Please contact me if you are interested via email or find LilyfieldLife on facebook or Instagram.

Lovely French style console: painted in a soft grey chalk paint and black top. Fluted legs. Solid timber. Single drawer. Gorgeous fleur de lis handle 
105w x 36d x 86h cm

A lovely vintage piece painted in a custom mix greige ASCP and waxed finish. A little chip/damage on a drawer corner (middle drawer, left bottom corner, not perfect but not structural) All drawers dovetailed and slide smoothly. Gorgeous detail and original hardware. 
95w x 45d x 87h cm

Gorgeous old rustic pine cabinet. Beautiful tongue and groove planks. So lovely. Would work well well in all rooms of your house. (Even as a baby's change table due to a slight lip on the top.) Painted in ASCP old white and gently distressed. Waxed finish. 
See photo in comments for interior: one fixed shelf.
73w x 44d x 90h

Lovely cedar backing board turned coat hook shelf unit. Solid cedar timber painted in a beautiful French putty green grey. Rustic and distressed. Three large double hooks.
125w x 15d x 48h cm

Good luck with all your preparations. Have a good week
