Introducing SHABBY CHIC® by Rachel Ashwell Chalk and Clay Paint
We are so excited to announce that, coming next week, our chalk and clay paint will be partnering with SHABBY CHIC® by Rachel Ashwell! This paint is the same paint formula that we now carry in our Bungalow 47 house brand, but in 10 new beautiful SHABBY CHIC® signature colors.
The Same Tried + True Product
The paint is the same amazing chalk and clay product Bungalow 47 is known for. It is easy to paint and distress and create those shabby, imperfect finishes we all love. The paint can easily be manipulated to create a crusty finish to mimic painted furniture patina.
As many of you know, we offer paint in both SHABBY CHIC® Paint and Junk Gypsy™ Paint private label brands. Rachel is an amazing and inspiring woman, and we feel so blessed to be able to bring this wonderful paint to market.
Rachel Ashwell and Shabby Chic
For 25 years, the name Rachel Ashwell has been synonymous with SHABBY CHIC®. The SHABBY CHIC® brand, based on the aesthetics of beauty, comfort, and function, marries great design with casual ease. British-born Rachel Ashwell is a self-made business woman who founded the iconic brand known as SHABBY CHIC® in 1989 when, as a single mother of two young children, she looked to open a small shop where she could sell pretty things without spending much time or distance away from her children. Read more about Rachel here.
You can also visit the official Shabby Chic® website here to learn more about her brand and style.
The pastel colors are similar to soft shades carried in the current Bungalow 47 Furniture Paint line. For Rachel’s private label, these shades were curated into an easy to follow pastel color chart.
UPDATE 2019: this line has been retired. Similar pastel shades can be found in the Bungalow 47 Furniture Paint line.
Would like to get samples of the Shabby Chic paint. Do u sell small samples?

Can you buy Shabby Chic paint in Canada and if so where? Or do you ship to Canada?
Hi We just filled out an application to carry the Shabby Chic Paint in our shop. Wondering if you have samples yet? If so, we would love some! Thanks, Kim
I’m very interested in samples also. Would you be able to guide me to co-ordination fabrics?
Yes, we can ship to Canada. The rates are not entered into our cart however. To place an order, you can call us at (517) 996-6201 and let us know that you would like to place a retail order for shipment into Canada!
Yes Kim! The samples are now available!
Karyn, Thank you for your question. As the distributors of the paint line only, we do not have access to the fabric lines available as they are not included as part of this licensed product. However, Rachel Ashwell has chosen these colors to coordinate with her palette and design aesthetic so they will look gorgeous side by side any of her Shabby Chic® Couture or Simply Shabby Chic® line for Target®. For more inspiration or coordinating questions, you may want to contact Shabby Chic® directly at http://www.shabbychic.com
Do you have a color card you can mail me?
Yvonne, If you would like a color chart for Shabby Chic Paint, please call our warehouse during business hours at (517) 996-6200 to provide us with your address.
Can you ship Shabby Chic paint to Denmark?
Unfortunately, Shabby Chic chalk and clay paint is only available currently in North America.
Where do I purchase your paint? Are samples available? Do you have a price list?
Donna, You can purchase 8 ounce sample sizes at $13.95 each from a retailer near you, or call us at (517) 325-1147 and let us know you are a customer who is interested in placing an order and we can take that over the phone!
Would this paint hold up well for kitchen cabinets?..is there a clear top coat that would protect it better?
What wall color goes well with and accents white shabby chic furniture? We just painted and distressed a our furniture and are looking for a wall color. My choice is white tinted wall color. HELP
Can you use this on walls
You can but I wouldn’t. This specialty paint is formulated best for those special projects that need just the right patina. Walls (mostly being drywall) are most efficiently painted using latex.
Where do I get your paints and what colors for the window shutters look good with cream soft yellow? Do u sell yellow paint?
You can purchase our paints on our website at bungalow47.com
Can I order samples of the shabby chic paint online from you? I am interested in Caribbean Sea and Malibu Bonnie blue
Can I order a color card of the shabby chic palette ?
I’m sorry. this line was retired a few years ago.
I’m sorry, this line was retired a few years ago, as it was limited edition. However, we do have similar colors to the ones mentioned in our current Bungalow 47 line. Shuttered Cottage and Tea Towel would be the closest matches.
Hi there! I’m have a specialty boutique (nearly 7 years) and am interested in carrying this! Can you please send me info!
Hi Dani, The paint is only sold under the Bungalow 47 name currently. This was a private label that we did for Shabby Chic and it was retired several years ago.
