I love the shabby chic look…. it is so soft and romantic. It is easy to change old and tired furniture into appealing new pieces. I have picked up a number of bargain priced pieces of furniture and given them a new lease of life with paint and elbow grease. I never get tired of painting and sanding and creating something beautiful.
I purchased this hall stand for $80. It was that typical brown colour you see everywhere. It is now so pretty.
This is an identical hall table that I have owned for years. I gave it the same treatment. It now houses some of my blue and white china collection.
This $5 purchase from a thrift shop is now functional and fabulous.
This little butlers table is now so sweet after a makeover.
Shabby Chic is very popular and many people are using their creative talents to transform and reuse items that might otherwise have been discarded. Why buy new items when with a bit of time and effort you can create your own masterpieces. I hope you enjoyed having a peak at some of my makeovers. Here is a selection of wonderful shabby chic tables other DIYers on Hometalk have created. I hope you enjoy browsing through them and taking inspiration!
