At State Of Distress we are very passionate about upcycling old furniture and antiques. We love all things vintage, shabby, rustic, French country and the list goes on.

We are now Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ Stockists!

As of March 2017 we are now stocking all Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Colours and Waxes, along with brushes, Annie Sloan Books and other paraphernalia related to furniture painting! Later in the Summer we will be offering furniture painting workshops but in the meantime we are here for hints, tips and advice, just drop in and ask away!

Old furniture is often discarded or dismissed as aged, ugly or out of date but these pieces are generally solidly made and beautifully crafted. They also tell a tale of the past and carry their own history with them which is priceless.

At State Of Distress we NEVER judge a book (or a cupboard) by its cover. Look a little deeper and you may find there is potential to turn that item into a masterpiece and give it a whole new lease on life.


One woman’s trash is our treasure!

State Of Distress: providing shabby chic furniture, painted to a very high standard using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™. Items can be commissioned by request and if you have your own item of furniture that needs new life bring it to us and choose your colour and we can breathe new life into it for you.
