1 SHABBY CHIC DETAILS
You don’t need the whole space looking to distressed, you don’t need to make all walls and every millimeter of your room look in the style. No, leave it for Sсandy or classical styles. Shabby chic needs just a one-tone green neutral color walls and wooden (or looking like wooden), or wall-to-wall rug flooring. But what it really needs - your attention to detail.
You can start your shabby chic journey with a small bed side table, or a nice coffee table, with a cabinet - anything you want. Make it really individual, with simple instruments like paint, metallic brush and lacquer (you can memorize what is decoupage, but be really minimalistic in it, please). Or you can leave it in the heritage color - if it is creamy, white, sage, pale - just brush it off and put a layer of transparent lacquer, to make it safe to use.
