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 Here's my hand at painting furniture, and turning outdated vintage pieces, into something beautiful again.

The Olde Farmhouse Market at Christmas!

What a wonderful event! Thanks to Leah and Barb, for putting on another fabulous vintage market! Had a blast meeting new people, and selling one of a kind treasures. Here's a few pictures of what I brought along!

I absolutely loved this round table, and had a hard time letting it go! I found it at an estate sale, and it was in beautiful condition! I painted it Vintage White with CeCe Caldwells chalk paint. I then transferred a French advertising graphic to the top of the table. Such beautiful scalloped edges, and amazing legs!

 I created a few different word blocks, with vintage sheet music as the background. They were really popular! The coasters are made from recycled tiles, and they were also a hit. This table was painted in a custom mix of old white and country gray, both by Annie Sloan chalk paint. I added a French address to the top, and waxed it to seal the finish.

 Another piece I wanted to keep! This stunning dresser had it all! I found it at a estate sale, along with an entire bedroom set! I finished it in Vintage White, and distressed the details. It just came alive! Dovetailed construction, and pull out drawers in the upper cabinet as well. Got a lot of looks, and sold quite quickly!

  This French Provincial sofa got a new look, with Country gray painted on the frame. It was in such pristine condition! Really comfortable, and traditionally pretty!
 Here I am with all my treasures! It was quite a job filling the 10x15 space. I had about 4 months to plan, which seems like a lot of time, but with 3 little ones, under the age of 7, and moving the month before, I had my hands full! Seems like every spare minute I was either sourcing out finds with my kids, or painting while they played outside. It was worth it, though! Really rewarding seeing past customers again, who remembered me! Thanks so much for your support!

Little princess chair! Painted this little rocking chair in vintage white, and added this crown graphic to the seat. Perfect for the new little princess who owns it!

I'm working on quite a few custom orders right now, and have a few beautiful pieces waiting to be finished. If you're looking for a new piece of furniture for your home, please don't hesitate to contact me.
