I often get asked… ‘Do you paint furniture for people?’ ie, items that people already own. The answer is YES, I do!

It’s been a busy start to the year and here are some pictures of finished projects, which might help to inspire you if you fancy making any decorative changes to your home this Spring.

Happy (not so) New Year…

Apologies for not posting on here for a while… There are two reasons I haven’t posted for a while:

  1. I’ve moved house twice so far this year whilst we’re having our old house rebuilt. Yes, 100% demolished and we currently have new walls going up!
  2. I will soon be launching a new website where you can more clearly read about my business, services and home interiors shop.

Here is a little glimpse of how things are going to look. I will be having a relaunch in Spring, just in time for all those exciting DIY and home improvement plans! So whether you’re sprucing up your decor, thinking about a furniture makeover or looking for beautiful new accessories to add the wow factor to your home, watch this space!

Here are my opening hours for the holidays – in short, closed from Sat 23rd Dec and open again on Thu 4 Jan 2018.

If you are local and desperate to get started on a new paint project between the holidays, please do get in touch on 07776 182079 or email and you can visit the shop by appointment to get what you need!

For now, my very best wishes for a fabulous Christmas and a healthy and exciting 2018!

Christmas Opening Hours


Almost There…!

I don’t know about you, but this year has FLOWN by and once again we’re just around the corner from Christmas.

There are still some lovely bits available in the shop, in the way of tree decorations, festive home accessories and of course beautiful (and different) gifts for all the family. I for one get a bit fed up of seeing the same things on the High Street year in, year out, so I make it a point to select unusual items that will inspire and delight!

Here are some pictures of what’s still available. Email me via for availability, to reserve an item or if you have any questions.

Christmas Has Landed!

After doing some research I learned that the majority of people prefer not to be bombarded with Christmas until after Halloween/Bonfire Night. With that in mind, my Christmas shop is now open!

Whether you’re shopping for gifts or thinking about changing this year’s festive colour scheme, there’s something for you at Shelle’s Chic.

Open Tuesday to Saturday, 10-4 at Chilvers Coton Craft Centre in Nuneaton.

Holidays are coming…

This time last year I was in a tiny shop and didn’t really have room to ‘do’ Christmas. This year, that’s all changed!

Christmas is arriving – IN STYLE – at Shelle’s Chic on Saturday 4th November. Doors open at 10am. Unit 3, Chilvers Coton Craft Centre, Avenue Road, Nuneaton CV11 4LU.

There will be lots of beautiful gifts and even more beautiful decorations to make your home look gorgeous this festive season. I will also be doing special offers every week in December and a prize draw you won’t want to miss.

Hope to see you soon!
