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 Here's my hand at painting furniture, and turning outdated vintage pieces, into something beautiful again.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