Here at CCORRN we really love what we do, we really do!

We love getting messy in the name of saving the planet - just look at our overalls, they're more like colour cards than clothing.

One thing we love more than testing and making paint or collecting and sorting resources for the scrapstore; is seeing and hearing what members are making and creating with their purchases.

We encourage you to take before and after photos or better still, take lots of photos or video clips so we can make tutorial print outs or even mini movies to help inspire others.

Not everyone lives on Facebook which is where we have shared a lot of these creations to date so we have decided to use this blog part of our website for this purpose. We might pop in the odd guest post if we feel the content might be of interest to you.

Additionally we will be creating a regular members' e-newletter. If you've given us your email already you should recieve one in a few weeks time and if you haven't we will have a subscribe button added to our website in the near future.

So if you have photos of things you've made or rooms you've given a 'makever' to; please share them with us either via Facebook or via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If you'd like to submit a blog post to us it is probably best to sendus it by email, ideally with photos.

Thank-you so much for all your stories we'd love to hear and see more fo them.

You can apply for as much, or as little of the 240 litres, and once a month we will announce the lucky recipients!

RePaint Wish List

We are also launching a reservation service for members of the public. If you need a specific type or colour of paint or you need large quantities - it can give us time to prepare and mix it and saves you the trouble of traveling to us.

If you wish to reserve paint please us this form (word document) and email back to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

And, as always, if you wish to discuss directly with us or need more information please call our office on 01354 607667
