Come Along And Help Us Celebrate Our Second Birthday!

You are cordially invited to ShabbyAnd…  on Saturday September 5th to help us celebrate our second birthday in style!

Everyone who walks through the door of our premises at 35A to 35B Barfield Road, West Mersea, Essex, on that day will be given a glass of fizz and some nibbles to help us mark this special occasion and to thank you, our customers. We value all of our customers and as a token of our appreciation we are giving everyone 10 per cent off everything in the store for the day.

‘It’s happy birthday to us, ‘ said ShabbyAnd…’s owner, Ann Beament. ‘Who would have thought we would have come so far in such a short time and I firmly believe our best is yet to come!’

ShabbyAnd… which is well known across the region for our fabulous range of lovingly restored furniture, shabby chic goods, unique home accessories, soft furnishings, gifts and cards, as well as for being one of the UK’s main stockists for child-friendly and eco friendly Autentico Chalk paints.

You might have seen ShabbyAnd…featured on TV when the producers of  ‘Peter Andre’s 60 Minute Makeover’ programme selected one of our two tier occasional tables to help refurbish a room of someone nominated by their friends and family for some star treatment. ShabbyAnd…’s proprietor, Ann, who turned her love of transforming heirlooms and well-loved pieces of furniture into a business, had used her creative talents to give the table a make over using Aged Paper Autentico Vintage Chalk Paint and dark wax.

Since then our business has gone from strength to strength. We have installed a special paint mixing machine so that we can mix and supply any of the Autentico chalk paint range for all projects, whether you want to use it on internal or external walls or on furniture.



 We have also expanded into a second neighbouring premises to provide extra space for our regular workshops where our experts show people how to upcycle well-loved pieces in a shabby chic, retro or vintage style. You name it and we can reinvigorate your favourite household items using paint and wax or by applying special effects, whether it is a table, chair, chest of drawers, wardrobe, picture frame or mirror, etc.

All of our workshops are an enjoyable experience, lasting three to four hours, where beginners and or more experienced enthusiasts are shown how to prepare the furniture, the necessary tools and equipment, painting techniques, layering techniques, and how to apply waxes and special effects.

Last year we were shortlisted for the Essex Business Awards and we are currently nominees in several categories of The Trust Awards UK 2015. Please vote for us at: http://www.thetrustawards.com/uk/companies/shabbyand/?cid=32
