About Bent On Life


Bent on Life is a veritable treasure haven. Our heritage building is just one of many fabulous buildings that are dotted around a classic British Town Square design, each building with its own stories and historical value.  This original bakery has been restored with love to enable us to showcase our beautiful range of furniture, DIY accessories and of course the wonderful Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan. 

Wingham is a great place to visit, with many wonderful retail experiences, along with our multi-award-winning cafe Bent on Food. We offer an old fashioned shopping experience, with gift wrapping and personal service. We love to show you all of the wonderful techniques that can be achieved with the fabulous Chalk Paint. We love colour at Bent on Life, and we aim to brighten your day with every visit.
