The Cloud Tree Furniture Story
I’ve always loved crafting! I began upcycling when I was experiencing some personal health struggles and needed a creative outlet. It was then that I realised how therapeutic it can be to get my creativity flowing and make something absolutely beautiful! What makes me so passionate about upcycling is that it’s a way to give new life to something that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
Named for a cloud tree in my own garden, I began Cloud Tree Furniture as a way to sell the furniture I’ve painted. As my business grew, I started selling upcycling tools and supplies so you can create your own bespoke furniture, too. I’m thrilled to share my favourite upcycling products with you so you can experience the joy of making your own creative vision come to life!
I’m a sales rep by trade, so I spend my days travelling all over beautiful NZ. However, a few years ago, I was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease. This diagnosis forced me to slow down, and there were many days when I struggled to manage my demanding day job.
I began thinking about creating a business to support myself in the future. And that’s how Cloud Tree Furniture was born! My husband is an amazing support, as he does most of the repairs and rebuilds for my upcycling projects. Then I use my creative flair to produce a unique piece of furniture!
On 20 December 2021, I got a new kidney, which was donated by my wonderful mum. Since then, I’ve gotten my energy back and have a whole new lease on life. Now I’m able to pursue my passion for upcycling alongside my day job.
I love to share the joy that comes from refurbishing furniture! After all, if I can create a unique and beautiful piece, then you can, too! I’ve chosen the best materials, paints, brushes, stencils and transfers I’ve found so you can paint your own bespoke furniture. I hope that, by using my products, you feel the same sense of delight from upcycling that I do!
