Shabby Chic Furniture
More of the furniture I have been collecting has been finished and now in the Beach House, I have given it all a shabby chic finish for that vintage effect.
Using different shades of white, cream or grey's for the finish colour makes them all tone and sit together nicely. If I had used all the same colour cream it may have been a little bland for such a large room.
I treated myself to this vintage wooden bobbin at an antique market, it came from an old weaving loom somewhere in Australia. I need to find some of my crochet laces and ribbons to wind on it, they are some where in a box here, I still have not unpacked everything I brought. But now I have some furniture to put things on I will have to sort through the boxes.
Little hand painted hearts.... Faye, Christian and Karen. Family Love.
A lovely old basket I found at a charity garage sale last weekend, perfect for my waste paper bin. It reminds me of my Great Aunts as a child I am sure one of my Nan's sisters had something like this.
