Colchester based ShabbyAnd… Ltd t/a Autentico Paint UK exists to help you transform your home and furniture using chalk paint.


Are you looking for a unique or interesting piece of furniture for your home or office?
Do you have an item of furniture that could be transformed and brought back to life with a bit of colour?
Established for over five years, ShabbyAnd… Ltd t/a Autentico Paint UK is owned and run by Ann Cope, an experienced interior designer with an exquisite eye for detail.
Ann manages interior design projects from single rooms to full home makeovers, but she specialises in chic upcycled furniture, high-quality paints and home accessories.
Ann is so knowledgeable and creative and she likes nothing more than discussing what could be achieved with a coat of paint to ‘upcycling’ a table, a dresser, a side-board. She can really help you bring your ideas to life and don’t be surprised to find her suggesting the right colours for your next new furniture restoration project!!

Learn to Paint
If you would like to learn to paint, Ann also offers furniture painting workshops where you’ll learn how to combine the best techniques and materials using Autentico chalk paints. Beginners and advanced courses are available.

Up-Cycle Furniture
The ShabbyAnd store in West Mersea, near Colchester is the place where you will find furniture that is upcycled on site as well as home accessories and gifts.
Selling a wide range of character furniture that is ready to be transformed, come along, choose your piece, then talk to us about commissions.

Finding and painting the ideal piece of furniture for your home can be difficult but Ann loves nothing more than a commission to create exactly what you’re looking for – and there’s no-one better. The best place to start is just by having a chat with Ann.
