Our Country Shop


Nestled in the old 1850’s Union Bank building on the main street of Smythesdale is our little piece of rustic heaven! The building itself has been lovingly restored to imperfect perfection and is the new home of all our much loved rustic treasures and furniture. We currently have an array of hand painted furniture, vintage wares, home decor and gift wares including divine hand poured soaps and candles!!

Please scrolls through to view some snippets of the shop… or come and visit us at

  1. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog
    loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hi there, I just checked the blog out on my phone and on a computer and the images are showing up fine…. I have noticed that sometimes when i look at the blog from different laptops occasionally a few of the pictures are blurry so i think it might have something to do with the internet connection etc … hope this helps 🙂

  2. There’s so much farmhouse furniture around nonetheless am still trying to find a farm house model nest of tables – starting to believe they don’t really exist!

    • Hi Lucia, sometimes it can be incredibly hard to find the exact piece you are after. If you like you can email me some pictures of what you are after and if i come across anything or can help you find something then I will let you know. Adriana 🙂

    • Hi Lea, i often come across country style chairs … if you would like to shoot me an email with the style chair and colour / effect you are after that would be great 🙂

    • Hi Jean. No.. extra bond is designed for use with milk paint only. It is not reccomended for use with chalk paint. Chalk paint already has great adherence properties on its own. To learn more about extra bond pleasego to our “shop-paint” page from the menu and scroll down to the article links under the sweet pickins milk paint heading. 😊
