Meet the Team
At ShabbyAnd… our team are always on hand to help you with all things chalk paint related. At little over a year old, our small team have settled in well, and have become familiar with our customers.
Our Shabby Queen is Ann Beament, who began painting shabby chic furniture and selling it to friends and family. As the demand grew, Ann knew she needed a shop, and ShabbyAnd… opened in September 2013 in Barfield Road, West Mersea, Essex. Central to Ann’s life is her family, her partner David often helps out with the furniture, and recently installed all new shelving and display into the shop. You will often see her children around the shop, either helping out or waiting for Ann to finish!
Ann's sister-in-law Louise has been there from the start, you will see her in the shop busy painting furniture. Her love of paint is equal to her love of horses, she is a keen rider and horse enthusiast. Louise is also a real family lady, enjoying her free time with her 4 children when she is not at ShabbyAnd...
The latest addition to our team is Sara, who loves the world of shabby chic just as much as Ann and Louise. Sara is athletic, she is a skilled runner who’s determination has helped her with all her skills. She has recently become a grandmother for the first time, so expect to see some baby themed products in ShabbyAnd…!
