Bedside tables with pull out tray

I painted these vintage bedsides years ago and they were very much in demand. I finally found another pair and am going to offer them up for custom painting. They are such useful bedsides and quite large. I love the pull out shelf. Very handy for a cup of tea in bed. 

These in the photo are painted in my Lilyfield Life Pebble but they will look fantastic in any colour from my palette.

Available for custom painting. A pair of large vintage bedside tables that offer fantastic storage with two drawers, a shelf and a pull out shelf at the top. The nicely  trimmed dovetailed drawers are all smooth sliding on runners. The timber has some deep veins in it (like recycled timber) and there are woven cane insets on the sides and back of shelf.

Furniture painting basics workshops announced

Hello! I’m excited to announce “Furniture Painting Basics” Workshops are back in action. 
🖤 Lilyfield Life will help you transform your house into a gorgeous home, without breaking the bank or buying poor quality furniture. 

🖤 I am madly passionate about painting and restoring antique and vintage furniture. I have been painting furniture since 2006 and started my vintage furniture business full time in 2009. Painting furniture brings me a huge amount of joy and satisfaction and I love that I can create unique functional beauty that will still be loved in years and years to come. I can’t wait to share my skill with you and teach you all the basics. 

🖤 Lilyfield Life Paint: 
After using most paints on the market, I have launched my own range of paints - a decorative chalk finish and a durable satin finish. They are so beautiful to use. Water based, non toxic, easy to use and stunning coverage and results.

🖤 Furniture Painting Basics Workshop 
This is a hands-on workshop that will teach you all the basics of furniture painting. Learn how to prepare your piece, how to achieve different looks with your choice of chalk paint or satin,  how to distress, antique with waxes and achieve a beautiful finish. Bring a small piece of furniture to work on or I can provide you with sample boards.

The workshop price is $250 per person. This includes all materials that you require in the class as well as morning tea and lunch.  Wear paint clothes.

Antique pigeon hole cabinet- so beautiful

I am so out of practice blogging and have so much to share including launching my own paint range! I will write a post over the weekend with all the details. 

In the meantime I thought I’d share this gorgeous antique pigeon holencabient I have for sale at the moment. I just love it! 

So useful and attractive. If it doesn’t get snapped up I might use it to store the homewares I have for sale.

It has a few bumps and marks but great condition for its age. (1920s Art Deco piece) 

Available: a fantastic antique oak cabinet with fitted pigeon holes. So much useful storage and the patina on the timber is beautiful. A few marks and bumps but great considering its age. So many uses for this piece. Nice base to it also. 
100w x 40d x 165h cm 
(Now sold) 
Pickup Lilyfield or delivery can be quoted.
(Would love this to be picked up this weekend as I have zero storage at the moment )

Let me know if you are keen
Hope you are going okay and still reading this blog
