Our New Improved Workshop Space Is Now Bigger and Better!

Here at ShabbyAnd…  we have recently invested in our business to improve our workshop facilities for lovers of shabby chic and Autentico chalk paints.

The area where we hold our workshops to show people how to lovingly transform their furniture to create stunning vintage and retro look has been expanded at 35A – 35B Barfield Road, West Mersea, Essex, CO5 8QX.


This good news means that we can now increase our services for group bookings for people who may be looking to entertain their family and friends, teams or groups with something a little bit different.


All of our workshops are fun and last three to four hours. If you are looking for a novel Hen or Stag party pre-drinks get-together, or run a WI group or sports team, Scout or Guide troop, for example, this could be the ideal activity. It would certainly be something to tell your friends about and you could have some new skills to photograph and post on your social media.

Our very own Shabby Chic Queen, Ann Beament, who was shortlisted in the Essex Business Awards in 2014, will be conducting the workshops. She will be sharing her expertise and knowledge with all attendees.

It was her love of transforming furniture with these techniques that led Ann to turn a much-loved hobby into a successful business and shop which sells Autentico Chalk Paints, carefully restored pre-owned furniture, creatively designed and ethically sourced goods that will be cherished by you or as gifts by your loved ones.


We run our workshops throughout the year for beginners, who are picking up new skills so that they can achieve that distressed or vintage look, and also for advanced practitioners of all things shabby chic, who feel the need to increase their learning.

The full spectrum of skills that will be demonstrated at the workshops are listed on an earlier blog, but you can rest assured that you will leave with a new talent that could save you pounds. Instead of having to buy new furniture for your home, you will be able to breath new life into your favourite piece or heirloom at a fraction of the price.
