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 Here's my hand at painting furniture, and turning outdated vintage pieces, into something beautiful again.

Past market

I Love the way this display turned out! I was a vendor at the Clayburn Heritage Day Market, and it was a great day!  The dresser sold quite quickly, and the kids blocks were a hit! The hope sign sold to a girl who's middle name was "hope" and I just love the vintage inspired hangers! The Bienvenue sign is still available for $17

 My sister found these crates for me, and I was so excited to get my hands on them. A bit of paint and distressing, a hand transferred graphic, and you've got a beautiful display piece, that is functional too.
This vanity was the perfect shade of white for a little girls room... It sold on my way to the market! I had posted a pic on my facebook page, and a customer contacted me to tell me to put a sold sign on it . So cute!

getting ready for the Christmas market!

The Olde Farmhouse vintage market was a huge success! Now they're back with a Christmas market! I'm so excited to be a vendor again, and I'm working on a few projects. This soap dispenser was made from a mason jar that I had in the garage... love the way it turned out! Will definately be coming to the market with me.

And check out this classic wooden chair! Love the stencil on the seat... different yet traditional at the same time. I have one more, that I plan on finishing the same way. They'll look lovely together at the market! For more market information, please check out my upcoming events.

I'm back!

I've been so busy moving, that I haven't had a lot of time for furniture! We've been in our new house for about a month now, and it's starting to feel like home. I've painted the living room, dining room, office, master bath, guest room, and my daughter's room....few more to go. :) I also painted and reupholstered our kitchen chairs. Finally something for me! All this furniture that I refinish I want to keep for myself, but I never do! I took a bit of time off, to paint at our new house, and I'll post pics of the chairs, once the table is done too.
I had a customer inquire about a chair that I had done recently, but it had already sold. So I went on the hunt to find something similar. I found a set of two! I brought them home, an my daughter Ellie, who is 4, immediately claimed one for her new room. What can I say? She loves to decorate! So, I got to work on the other one. Little bit of wood fill, painted the frame in Old white, sanded and waxed. I love the way it turned out! Look at the cute little dancing couple on the vintage fabric...so romantic! It's off to its new home this week, and I've got to get to work on Ellie's chair!

French side table

 Isnt this the cutest little side table? I love the two tiers, and the drawer on the bottom is perfect for your treasures. Painted in Simply White, and distressed to add to the shabby chic look. It'll be joining me at the upcoming Clayburn Heritage day market on July 15th! (Unless someone buys it first! :)
 Love this French graphic. Absolutely stunning! I've hand transferred it, and waxed the image to seal it. Would be a beautiful bedside, or front entry table!
Love the detail that shows through once the distressing has been done. Makes me smile!
  Thanks for stopping by!

 What a day at the Olde Farmhouse Market! The vendors that were there, had some amazing pieces~ very creative, and inspiring. I set up my booth, and as soon as the doors opened, the sales started coming in! I sold quite a few of the pallet wine racks, in the picture above, and lots of the children's blocks. The pillows were a hit, and the eiffel tower candle holder also sold.
 I loved this little stool. The turqouise color was just perfect, and the graphic added something special. sold~ the set of two ladderback chairs also sold, and the paris gray night stand with glass knobs sold, along with the matching one that I've yet to complete. The cream chair with the crown graphic on the seat, sold at the very end of the day!
The bench that the blocks were resting on, received a lot of attention, and sold! The cream chair in the background with the red Paris fabric is still available!
  A big thank you to Leah and Barb for putting on such a fabulous show!!! Can't wait for the next one!

my new mirror!

estate sale find! I just picked this mirror up over the weekend, and I'm loving it, now that I've painted it! The darkened edges, really pick up the detail, and I think this mirror might be staying on my wall. :) The original price tag was still on the back...can you believe it was bought at Lumberland?

custom order~

This amazing dining room suite is a custom order. Table and chairs are now complete! First coat is done on the sideboard, and then on to the matching china cabinet. The table and chairs took a week to complete, and I'm hoping to get the other pieces finished in 2 weeks. Biggest order to date! So thrilled with the way it turned out. I happen to have a very similar set in my basement, waiting for me to get my hands on! I love the table, and can't wait to have it finished in my home. Here are some before and after pics!
