ShabbyAnd and Friends Prize draw hampers

ShabbyAnd…’s owner, Ann Beament, said: ‘We were absolutely delighted with the number of entries to our Free Prize Draw. If it hadn’t have rained on the Sunday, we would have run out of entry slips.

‘Lots of people came for the Mersea Island Food, Drink and Leisure Festival and our stand was one of the most popular attractions.’

Our other good news is that everyone who entered the Free Prize Draw is being contacted to give them a 10 per cent discount voucher for ShabbyAnd… and Autentico Chalk Paint products.

If you would like to join Elaine on a Beginners’ Workshop and learn how to breathe new life into an heirloom or give a well-loved piece of furniture that time worn or vintage look, just get in touch. It’s a great way to develop a new interest, it will help save the planet by recycling materials and could save you pounds refurbishing your home.

Ann, or one of her team of shabby chic experts, will show you how to clean your furniture and how to repair it. They will demonstrate how to prepare surfaces before showing you how to apply Autentico Chalk Paints to give each piece a retro or distressed appearance. You will also learn how to apply waxes to seal your piece with soft sheen.

If you have already done one of our Beginners’ Workshops, you may be interested in increasing your skill and knowledge. We also run workshops for advanced practitioners of all things shabby chic, who want to learn more skills like how to createcrackle glaze effects, craquelure system, 3D effect using stencils and the Terrapieno embossing paste and Art Medium.
