All about Shabby Chic Surrey: our team comprises, Sarah and Andrew, who you might recognise from your visits to the Flora Lou shop in Chobham where they applied their shabby chic process to customers' furniture.
We still use the same shabby-chic methods, apply the same shabby chic treatment and commit ourselves to the same high standards of work that Flora Lou achieved over the years.
After several years of trading Flora Lou is no more a feature of the Chobham high street. But despite the lack of a shop, the workshop and team are still working. We can still shabby chic your furniture in Surrey.
We can collect your furniture, apply your choice of colour and wax and return your furniture at a time that suits you.
A typical schedule might be a fortnight, but can be quicker.
Our local area includes:
We do shabby chic work further afield but will need to be realistic about collecting and delivering your furniture over longer distances.
We mainly paint with Johnstone's paints. That's a departure from several years of using Farrow and Ball paints. But, we are getting better painting and drying results with these Johnstone's paints, so it's sensible to work with them. Of course, we can colour match any colour into a Johnstone's paint. So, if you heart is set on Elephant's Breath, Mole's Breath or Pavilion Gray, then don't worry. Because we can do all these really popular colours. Yes, the Farrow and Ball paint range does have a colour for everyone.
Paints in the Annie Sloan paint range are also popular. Their paints are matt finish on account of their high chalk content. They give an excellent shabby-chic effect when they are combined with a neutral wax finish.
We also use a variety of shabby chic colours from other paint manufacturers (mainly eggshell finish). These include the likes of Dulux, Valspar and Little Greene. Typically we use these to match the shabby chic furniture with existing paint colours in the home.
