Local mum of 3 Emma realised her dream when she opened Cositas in February 2017. Emma worked previously in local shops as a sales assistant and furniture painting guru. She’s in the shop most days because she downright loves it. Her days are just plain mad now, juggling the shop, searching constantly for amazing new stock, developing the workshops, trying to work with the local business community, working out how to use pesky tech stuff and then juggling her lovely family and dog. She’s only forgotten to collect from school once since opening the shop – well that’s all she admitting to anyway.

Emma teaches many of the furniture painting workshops in Cositas drawing on her previous experience as a professional furniture painter and tutor for over 10 years. There isn’t much she doesn’t know about all brands of chalk paint and our new hard wearing acrylic furniture paint, Fusion Mineral Paint from Canada.
