Painted Furniture and Home Decor by Melanie Anderson and Nicole Poirier-Wyss.

Retailers of Chalk Paint™ Decorative Paint and Products by Annie Sloan, Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint and Products and the complete line of Artisan Enhancements finishing products.  New to the Hamilton store are a selection of General Finishes products, makers of Java Gel!

We repurpose and upcycle tired but well built furniture. All of our pieces are finished with Chalk Paint™ Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan or Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint.  These are the best paints and waxes available for wood, laminate, cement, plaster and just about any other surface you can think of.

We are both trained in painting with these two fabulous lines of products, so please don’t hesitate to come in and consult with us.

We conveniently carry a full line of related products to help you give your furniture a brand new look: paint and wax brushes, handles and knobs, resin embellishments, etc.

You will also find a vast array of ever changing gorgeous and unusual vintage and new home decor, in other words shabby and chic and everything neat!
