The producers of the ITV programme which refurbishes rooms for people nominated by family and friends, recently contacted us and asked us to donate a two tier occasional table.
Our Shabby Queen, Ann Beament had lovingly upcycled the table using Aged Pepper Autentico chalk paint and dark wax. Now the table is appearing on Peter Andre’s programme on November 26th as part of the renovations to a home at Coxley Green, London.
Ann, who established ShabbyAnd… to meet a growing demand after successfully painting shabby chic furniture and selling it to friends and family, said: ‘We are thrilled to have a piece of our furniture feature on ‘Peter Andre’s 60 Minute Makeover’ programme. It’s good to do something to help someone in need or to reward someone who has done something good.’
Everything is unique in our ShabbyAnd… shop at 35A to 35B Barfield Road, West Mersea, Essex, but our team will be able to show you another lovingly upcycled piece of furniture that has undergone similar restoration work.
The beauty of chalk paint is that you don’t have to spend ages sanding furniture down. When Ann chooses an item of furniture to restore, her partner carries out any repairs and then after cleaning it, Ann or one of the team, paints straight on to the wood.
If you can’t find anything online or in our shop to meet your needs, you may wish to book a place on our next workshop to learn how to upcycle your favourite piece of furniture yourself!
