About Us

My upcycling journey started many years ago; my passion for interior design has been part of my life since a young child- I honestly don't know what my mum thought at times! 😂
I was designing and staging furniture around my room at young age- everything had to be in the right place, and I still live the same today, loving my upcycled pieces and finding where they belong.
My passion for upcycled painted pieces came to an abrupt halt about ten years ago. Everything I did caused a lot of pain after an operation, and tests I was told I had rheumatoid arthritis, leaving me unable to sand and paint my pieces without being in a world of pain. 😪
Then about 3 years ago I called into a garage sale just around the corner from my home to find some beautiful upcycled painted pieces I asked about them, saying I wished I could do this again. I went on to tell the lady (Jenny) about my RA & not being able to sand, etc. - and she went on to explain about Chalk Paint™! I could not get home fast enough to google this Chalk Paint™ - I found a local stockist and sent for some paint right away, I got to painting the moment it arrived, no sanding and no priming- job halved.
I was sure I could manage this! Yes I did, and 3 years later I'm still able to paint. Yes it can be painful at times but the enormous pleasure I get from painting makes it worth it.
My Chalk Paint™ journey started about three years ago, and I am loving being able to upcycle my pieces with the most amazing Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan.

I was so amazed by this Chalk Paint™ and encouraged by my husbands cousin Lindsay who is a stockist in the UK, I decided why not let's give it a go! To become a stockist, I did not make this decision lightly because I knew it was going to be a lot of hard work. But I was up for it, so I applied.
I will be honest I did have a set back getting accepted and I honestly felt maybe this isn't for me for a second- then I went to work on improving my space in our shop even more. I reapplied, and received a call from Kate at Unfolded as I had done a few months before hand- I was feeling very apprehensive to say the least! The answer was yes; the tears flowed; I was so elated and apologetic at the same time as to being unprofessional! Kates' words were, "Please don't apologize, we want people like you with passion- it's fine!" 😊
I attended a training program in Melbourne and had a wonderful time learning and meeting some fantastic people from the Unfolded team, and let's say the rest is history.

I'm a stockist for the most amazing Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan. I'm very passionate about what I'm doing and feel very privileged & grateful to of been accepted.
A huge thank you to Annie Sloan, Kate, and the Unfolded team.
To all my wonderful customers for all your support over the years I couldn't have done it without you- thank you.😊
I would also like to thank all the people that have helped me to realise my dream.
I love you with all my heart ❤️ xx
