About Shabby Chic Surrey
We can paint, stain, shabby chic and lime your furniture at our workshop premises in West End, Surrey Heath. Typically we paint with water-based primers, undercoats and eggshell or satin wood top coats. But we also paint with Annie Sloan chalk paints and other matt emulsions, such as Little Greene.
We use water-based varnishes wherever possible, but will use solvent-based polyurethanes when needed. And we also apply solvent-based primers to hide certain wood stains and knots.
How Our Shabby Chic Service Works
We can collect your furniture, apply your choice of colour and wax and return your furniture at a time that suits you.
Generally a typical schedule might be a fortnight. But this can be quicker.
Our local area includes:
We also do shabby chic work further afield. However, we do need to be realistic about collecting and delivering your furniture over longer distances.
Shabby Chic Paints
We mainly paint with Johnstone's paints. Certainly, 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. Thus, 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. However, they do 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.
