IMPORTANT NOTICE - Due to the deluge of Frenchic Paint orders I will be closing the website for paint orders from May 12th for two weeks, this will enable me to get up to date with past orders, messages and stock levels.
Business online will resume as normal on 26th May and the shop in Winchester will open when safe to do so.
Stay safe, Geraldine x

Add some character to your home with one of your favourite sayings etched onto a chunky wooden sign. Whether you’re looking for something that inspires you or simply makes you smile, these handmade signs are made with aged wood and rope for a shabby chic look, and are a natural or off white shade that will complement any part of your home.
If you can’t see your favourite quote, simply let me know what you’d like and I’ll be delighted to arrange to have it specially made for you (this does cost extra).
Create something different and add another dimension to your handiwork, whether it be for furniture, craft making or your walls at home, our range of stencils are there to inspire and bring out the artist in you.

Info about Furniture
There’s beauty in pre-loved furniture, and we want to bring it out. I was frustrated with the boring, identikit furniture I saw in shops everywhere and wanted to create something that was individual and beautiful.
Here at Pavia-Lee we hold regular workshops to teach you how to upcycle your own furniture, we also take commissions for those of you that are too busy or just not inclined to paint yourselves. We use the eco-friendly Frenchic furniture paint because we believe it’s the best.
We offer a unique range of hand painted furniture for sell, pick up or local delivery only.
Info about me
Hi, I’m Geraldine and am the owner of Pavia-Lee on Parchment Street, a lovely little shop set in the historic town of Winchester. I opened my shop in February 2017 after a long life passion to have my own shop, I could never find the right thing to put into my home or to give as a gift for a friend so I decided that others must have the same problem, I wanted to offer a solution.
Why the name Pavia-Lee ? Pavia is from a town in Italy, which is also the name of our house. I rather liked it so I decided to use it and Lee is a play on my daughters’ names Ellie and Leah.
A website was the next step and I hope that I can bring some of my shop into your home via the internet.
Frenchic is an all natural, chalk and mineral paint that requires no stirring, shaking or the addition of water. We don’t add VOC’s, toxins or solvents and it has virtually no smell – which is important when painting indoors! You’ll find that it’s creamy, rich and has superior coverage. Safe to use on children’s toys and furniture, the healthier choice for your family & pets.
We have a number of ranges
- Original – 24 gorgeous colours, seal with a choice of our 4 waxes or the fabulous finishing coat, more durable, scratch resistant and water resistant, I just love this product!
- Lazy Range – 15colours with the wax already infused, so just paint & buff, what’s not lazy about that?
- Al Fresco – 12 rich colours designed with your outdoor furniture in mind, paint on plastic, UPVC, wood, metal & masonry, maintenance free for up to 6 years!
- Wall Paint – 10 new colours in a velvety washable finish.
