Antique painted pine linen press

antique pine linen press lilyfieldlife

Good afternoon, I’ve been working so hard lately I decided to take the afternoon off painting and I’m actually sitting in bed with the sun streaming in and a cool breeze, watching a movie on my iPad and I thought it was a good chance to update my blog. 

Phil and Jonty are hiking in New Zealand , a nice father and son trip and Sasha is in Spain on a school language tour. so I have been taking the opportunity to work hard and get loads done. I finished this stunning antique linen press last night and it’s available for purchase. Gosh I love it. I have painted the exterior in a limed white chalk paint and waxed finish and the interior I have left as it’s beautiful old scrubbed pine that has never been varnished so it looks gorgeous .

These pieces are so highly practical as well as beautiful - ideal for storing linen obviously but also they work well as a bar or general storage. .

Available : a stunning antique pine linen press. Exterior painted in a soft limed white and waxed finish. Interior is the beautiful waxed original timber. There are 4 large shelves and one small ledge shelf at the very top, two drawers with beautiful possibly ivory or bone carved handles. I just adore this piece and think it’s so practical for many uses in your home. Please note this is very old and there is slight old insect damage to the front feet but this has been treated a long time ago and timber is sturdy.

There are a few marks inside the drawers, easy to fix with some felt or paper.  

Do you love this as much as I do? It has me wishing I had a huge bathroom that I could place it in. It would look amazing!
