Latest vintage furniture from Lilyfield Life

Hope you are all enjoying a relaxing weekend, I have been doing some organising in my studio as well as have had a lot of customers here buying pieces which is wonderful.

One of the pieces that sold today was this beautiful vintage American chest of drawers. Such a lovely piece and so elegant now in white. These are quite big and offer lots of storage.

Also in the same white is this lovely vintage Demi lune console table. Now gone to Terrigal.

I also sold these lovely bow front drawers

I've also had some lovely timber pieces in (and now out). if pieces don't need painting and will sell timber I am always happy to just clean them up and get them to their new homes. Saves me work and saves my customers money.

Which is your favourite?

Gorgeous Candle sticks from old lamps

I recently bought a huge box of old brass lamp parts. I decided to turned them into interesting candle holders and paired them up with old wine bottle holders. It was super fiddly to do and took me much longer than I expected but I love the results.

The hardest part was making sure the tops were secure and that it allow straight. I painted them white then glazed them. The first photo are all still available but the other photos are sold.

Let me know if you are interested in any of them. 

(updated - all now sold)

Happy New Year painted furniture lovers

hello 2023! 
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a relaxing time over new years. We escaped to Avoca beach for a week and then have been at home just going to the beach, seeing friends and pottering around the house. It’s nice to not work and just have time to spend with loved ones. 

Last year was pretty good for my business, I did less furniture than I used to but lots of beautiful antique and vintage homewares. I still love painting furniture but I used to do one piece a day and honestly it was just too much after a few years. It’s good to have a mix and place less stress in my hands and body. 

This coming year I’m going to focus on  painted furniture workshops. I’ll be releasing dates soon but send me an email if you are keen. 

I will also be blogging a little more regularly and sorting out a newsletter and online shop for my paint. Lots of admin to do :)

Wishing you much love and success for the year ahead.
