10 years in business

This little business of mine, Lilyfield Life, is 10 years old!  This last weekend 10 years ago Jonty and I recovered a child’s arm chair for a friend’s daughter’s 5th birthday.  At the party another friend of mine, Serena , said wow you should go into business! Well that random comment sparked an idea and I started my blog the next day and started painting furniture. 10 years later I’m still really loving transforming drab vintage pieces into something special.

And the before (it was quite stained) 

I just used a drop sheet and hand painted the stripe and the fleur de lis: my friend had a French style house and she loved the chair. Her daughter had been using a bright pink Barbie chair that she hated.

And so there you go, just a random comment and then 10 years of follow through :) 
I’d love to hear from you if you also have a painted furniture business and how you got started. 

So many of you have my furniture and homewares in your homes. Thanks so much for all the support and love you send my way. 💙
