Chalked up furniture paint and upcycling furniture.

If you have been into our shop, you know how much we love upcycling, in fact all of our shelves, tables, and ladders we sourced second hand, or off the side of the road. Its a lot of fun when you spy a piece that you know will be just right, and tada with a bit of cleaning and painting we have a new piece to showcase what we make, so we were pretty happy when we met Alyssa and she joined our creative collective four years ago. Alyssa lives in the hunter and started making chalk paint, then one thing led to another and Chalked Up Furniture paint was born.
