My name is Mélanie Paulin and I’m the owner of Carte Blanche, exclusive stockist for Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan in the Greater Moncton area. I’ve been upcycling furniture for several years and in 2013 decided to open up a boutique that is a unique mix of home décor and DIY workshop space. Carte Blanche encourages customers to be creative, gives them the confidence and skills to tackle their own home décor projects and continuously provides inspiration and guidance. It is a place to learn, share and get excited about painted furniture.
When I heard about Chairs for Charity, an event combining creativity and charity, I just knew I had to get involved and that I had to get other local designers involved as well! I am so excited to get started on my chair and to open up Carte Blanche’s doors to help local designers Patrick Gagnon and Sophie Cassidy Querry with their own chairs.
