Welcome to Tiger Lily Furniture! I've been in love with everything French, since I visited Paris with my family when I was 16. Something magical about the city! My husband and I do renovations to make a living, and I'm the painter! Here's my hand at painting furniture, and turning outdated vintage pieces, into something beautiful again.

Antiqued Turquoise Dresser!

Gave this solid wood dresser, a light sand, and painted it this amazing turqouise. Then I sanded off the edges to rough it up a bit. Next came the dark wax, to antique, and protect the finish. Then I was off to find some new hardware. Loved the shape of these handles!  I waxed the original wood top, and now it's complete.
The top drawer, is a single drawer, and there is a shelf in the lower cupboard. Great for a small media cabinet? Toy storage? Dining room with table linens stored in it? Front entrance table? It would be fabulous in any room!  Sold!!!

    I am totally new to refinishing and I am wondering what you meant by wax.. What is it and where do you get it?? Also how much paint do you need to do a piece this size??
