Thank you for taking the time to visit our online store at Furnishin Designs.
Here is a little bit about us…..I am originally from the UK and arrived on the sunny shores of Australia over 10 years ago with my husband and 4 small children in tow. I worked as a midwife for over 20 years in the UK and still work in health currently as well as running our shop. When we first arrived we had no furniture and had to furnish our house on a budget and quickly. I had already heard about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in the UK and so I investigated further. I was overjoyed when I realised how easy and quick it was to use with no need for sanding or priming. Perfect!! We purchased our furniture mainly from op shops and I painted it - I worked full time as a midwife and my 4 children were all very young but it was so quick and easy to use it was done in no time at all without compromising our family time and I loved it!!! This is where my passion for painting and revamping furniture began. I quickly became a tiny bit ‘obsessed’ with painting and upcycling old furniture. I really love the fact that furniture from the past can be transformed into vibrant bespoke pieces. Some of these items no doubt would of ended up in landfill as no longer loved.
I’ve been following and loving the work of Annie Sloan retailers for several years, dreaming that one day to be a stockist myself - I finally found a space that worked and i can now say my dream has come true!!
Furnishin Designs is in the coastal town of Woolgoolga on the Mid North coast of NSW, its a beautiful place and I absolutely love it here. My shop is small but sweet, with a vintage feel. We pride ourselves on getting to know our customers and providing a great friendly service.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in non toxic and virtually odour free, with minimal VOCs so environmentally friendly and safe. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint requires NO sanding and NO priming and will paint on virtually everything. These attributes are definitely a good reason to paint on and on…..
We stock the full range of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and waxes and many other Annie Sloan Products, we also stock the MINT by Michelle decoupage papers and a selection of knobs and hooks.
