A few interesting pieces lately

Good morning! I have been knee deep in sourcing homewares and  an you believe it looking at Christmas homewares already. I have found some beautiful pieces that I’m really excited to with you over the next year. 

On the furniture front I have been busy as always. I thought I’d share a few different pieces I have painted lately. Most of these have already sold.


I finished this vintage hexagonal table yesterday, painted in black chalk paint and black waxed. I love the bamboo detail. Such a handy table for a lamp or vignette. Also I will be stocking these beautiful faux dried hydrangeas so let me know if you want to purchase them. (The table has sold with a few people wanting it).


This beautiful secretaire is made by master craftsmen Beard Watson. I have painted it graphite and given it a super smooth finish. I absolutely love this desk and always love the mix of graphite against timber so left the interior the original timber. The detailed apron of this is lovely. 

The beautiful artwork is a vintage Australian painting and is still available $145.






I have had quite a few vintage bird ages lately and they have all sold except for this one. This is a lovely old timber birdcage with timber spikes (they are often metal wore). 

Available: a large timber bird cage that’s completely timber, even the cage spokes (usually metal). The black paint is quite chippy but the birdcage is in perfect condition besides that. Lifts into three parts. A lovely piece. I think decorative but actually big enough for a small bird. (But no pull out tray for cleaning so there’s that :) )
I personally would be using it for styling.
41w x 31d x 75h cm
$325
Pickup Lilyfield or postage available




My favourite quirky piece lately has been this little rocking horse that’s heading off to Bec near Bendigo.




This horse was all coloured (muted colours but not ones I particularly liked) so I painted it grey then dry brushed it white. I love the look of it now. Much more me :) 

Wishing you a lovely day

  1. I like the changes of the pieces. The rocking horse is cute but I maybe would have added color in some way. Glad the secretary kept the wood look inside.
