ABOUT OUR CORNISH FAMILY BUSINESS.
Creating our own Cornish inspired/Environmentally-friendly paint line has always been a dream of ours, ever since we first picked up our paint brushes.
Our upcycling journey started when Reece hand painted a sideboard from home, to help him with his growing anxiety. We knew that being creative and having time painting was a great cure for anxiety and this proved to be right, as painting has since helped Reece to combat his anxiety and to use his new found creativity to create and brand Cornish Milk Mineral Paint.
After Reece had painted the sideboard in 2013, we decided to put the sideboard up for sale on eBay and within a matter of hours we could see the bids rising and this is when we decided to perfect our new hobby, attend upcycling classes and to start our own home-based business. We both started upcycling furniture from our home, when the ''Shabby-Chic'' craze first took over in 2013 and this is when ''The Cornish Furniture Painters' was born.
In October 2019 after adopting our three beautiful children, we started to put the foundations together for creating an environmentally-friendly paint line and started to explore all the fishing villages and towns within Cornwall as a family, to gain as much inspiration for our colour shades and shade names.
At the time, there was not a UK inspired paint line on the market, as most other brands were French themed and did not showcased the beautiful colours which Cornwall and the UK had to offer, so we knew from day one that our line of decorative paints would be Cornish inspired and needed to reflect our beautiful home, Cornwall.
On the 10th January 2020, Cornish Milk Mineral Paint launched from our own shop ''The Cornish Furniture Painters'' based in the beautiful Cornish fishing village of St Agnes, Cornwall. Within a matter of months after a very successful launch, we made Cornish Milk Mineral Paint our main business and now operate from our family run Cornish Milk HQ, located in Camborne, Cornwall.
Cornish Milk Mineral Paint is a proud family run and operated Cornish business. Myself (Joe), Reece and our three children work hard to make sure we offer our Cornish Milk painters/customers the best environmentally-friendly mineral paints and preparation tools for their projects, transforming their homes without harmful chemicals/toxins, which traditional paints use.
All of our mineral paints are made, poured and labelled by hand and then carefully packed by us here at Cornish Milk HQ, before being shipped to our stockists and customers all over the world.
We value the traditional way of paint making and as a company we have proudly reduced our C02 emissions by 75%, compared to a normal machine operated factory, manufacturing paints and pouring by hand. Yes, this traditional process takes us a little longer, but we love this process and as a family we work together.
Cornish Milk Mineral Paint is not just our business, its our family, home and life passion.
Thank you for using and purchasing Cornish Milk Mineral Paints.
As a small UK family operated business, we thrive on the support and word of mouth from our customers and UK Stockists.
Thank you for your support!
Reece, Joe, Ayden, Elle and Ruben,
Cornish Milk Mineral Paint
