We're doing Annie Sloan's THE BIG PAINT 🥳🔥 Get it while it's hot!

Up-cycle & Chalk Paint Store


in the Sunshine

Now a global phenomenon, Annie Sloan first developed the Chalk Paint® range in 1990 to answer the need she had for a versatile paint that would work beautifully on furniture without priming or sanding; that would be easy to use and quick to dry; and that could be used for a number of different paint techniques. She called it Chalk Paint® because of its velvety, ultra matt finish. 

 Whether modern or antique, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint lifts and brings new life to each one. Our showroom is full of upcycled tasteful furniture that’s been given the Annie Sloan treatment. Browse these pages or come for a visit to the picturesque little village of Tyalgum.


We stock Annie Sloan Chalk Paint because it’s non-toxic. No sanding or priming needed because it paints over just about anything. There’s NO paint fumes. And it washes out in water. What could be better than that?


We specialise in making second hand furniture, beautiful; mirrors, wardrobes, coffee tables. There is loads of advice on how you can paint your furniture with style. Or we can paint your furniture for you. In store is a small selection of antique and preloved items that are unique and add to our eclectic style of furnishings. Browse the shop for that special gift.


Unparalleled in quality and hugely popular, one of many reasons why we’re an exclusive stockist. Basic Skills with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is offered regularly.  We also run a Mixed Media workshop, using stencils and Iron Orchid Design moulds, stamps and transfers.

Our Projects

There are so many ideas and designs, it’s hard to decide which one you want! Our job is to help you find the right look for your project. Colours, styles, houses, offices – every situation is different, and we are here to offer you help getting the look that’s just right for you!

Clients also bring pieces in for us to transform on their behalf. Sometimes rooms, sometimes whole houses get the shabby chic touch from Somewhere in the Sunshine. There are lots of different styles that are important to us: French, Boho, Country, Swedish and Modern Contemporary. We work with your style. Check out these before and after photos to see the transformation.

Happy Customers

I have an old kitchen dresser my grandmother left me. It didn't suit our Hampton's style house. The girls at Somewhere in the Sunshine introduced me to 'Pure White' and it changed the whole thing. So glad I was able to keep this heirloom. Looks great!

I love Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! I've only done my kitchen cupboards so far, but I found it really easy and quick to do. Love that there are no paint fumes and no prep! Phew! What did we do before Annie Sloan!!
