The Painted Brush & Co is one of the latest stallholders to join Plumes Emporium in February 2021. Local business owner Elise Parker originally began her furniture restoration and home decor venture as a way of restoring and improving her mental health by tapping into her imagination and practically expressing her creativity. She has now been restoring, designing and painting furniture for more than 10 years.
“It all began with a mid-twentieth century phone table and exploded from there!” she said.
Elise would describe what she does as “restoration with creative license”, giving furniture a second chance at life through repairing, reusing and reimagining – transforming the once old and worn out into things of beauty and value. Once a project is completed it is often offered for sale online. Husband Joe is also involved in all aspects of the business, and of course their children are along for the ride, too.
During their time in operation they have used a wide variety of products to help them restore and re-imagine their chosen furniture piece and in 2017 began retailing their absolute ‘must have’ favourites.
Customers can now find a variety of these Australian and internationally made eco-conscious supplies at Plumes Emporium (as well as online through the company’s website and other social media). At their stall you will find almost everything you’ll need to transform a piece of furniture, decor or art from start to finish.
Their wide range includes:
- Pureco Silk Finish Paint, sealer, stain and glaze
- Autentico vintage chalk paint, Bio-Strip and matt varnish
- Waxes and prep products
- Paint brushes and accessories
- Monte Marte art books, brushes and accessories
The Painted Brush & Co will also offer a selection of furniture, decor and other accessories at Plumes Emporium.
“At our core we want to help others to unleash their creative energies and imaginations and make their homes distinctly their own with beautiful and unique pieces of art,” Elise said.
