What I’m working on this week

Good morning! I thought I might show you a few pieces I’m working on this week.  A few small pieces and a few big ones.

lilyfield life chiffonier kitchen island

How amazing is this antique chiffonier that I am helping transform into a kitchen island for my wonderful clients  Cathy and Steve. We took the amazing and enormous mirror off and I’ll also be painting it.  It is going to be hung over Cathy’s lounge at the other end of this large open room. The chiffonier is getting painted a taupe with white trim and a marble top.  Very Lilyfield Life . I have the bases here at my studio to paint and then next week I will paint the top section and the mirrors onsite.

While I’m working on that I’m fitting in a few small pieces. This quirky little bench cupboard that has an embroidered cushion top and cupboard below. Such a cute old piece. It sold straight away. 

I turned this mirror from champagne colour to gold with black showing through for Alana. Didn’t even get a chance to take good photos :)  super messy cramped studio - keeping it real .

Those bedsides in the reflection above are now almost finished painting and are already sold. I’ll share them soon.

I have almost finished this oak cabinet also. The lead light was all broken so I ripped it out and will put in wire for the doors. It’s looking really good already. Here’s the before (but after I removed the glass)

I have also been sewing some cushions and have them available for sale if you want. They fit a 50x50cm cushion and are $50 each cover only (or $65 with cushion insert). Available for postage. 

This ink grey stripe...

And navy ticking ones

I also have these stunning vintage double bow front drawers available as is. If it doesn’t sell I’ll be painting it and listing it next week.

I sold a few small pieces also this week.
These divine vintage lamps I gilded. They were so tarnished that I decided they were beyond polishing.

And I also sold this sweet console table
Just love it. 

Somemlovely pieces to be working on.
Hope you have also had a good week
