 Your local one stop furniture upcycling destination


Carts & Millie Boutique Furniture Paint is a water based, very low VOC, mineral paint suitable for furniture and home décor.  It is the perfect blend between desirable chalk and durable, self-sealing mineral paint.  It has superior adhesion properties, excellent coverage and requires minimal surface preparation. 27 fabulous colours and 3 sizes: 125 ml, 375 ml, 1 litre.  

Hocus Pocus rub on transfers are a much loved brand - something a little different; Hemp Oil to revive raw wood or finish painted wood; high quality Mylar stencils and designer transfers (an alternative to the rub on transfers) with a large range of options in numerous styles (French, Country, Vintage etc), and Washed Away wood stains in 5 on trend colours.  Boutique Hemp Salve is a great for reviving the interior draws & cupboards of your wood item, and my lovely NZ made water based Metallic Paint is now here to give your upcycle a touch of luxe!
