The purpose of this guide is to direct you to where you can find shabby chic. The main reason I'm guessing you are here is because you like the style and would like some in your home but are not sure where to find it or buy it. Am I correct?
I believe that Shabby chic is a British style and was founded upon the recycling of old furniture and fabrics like those of which were found in large country houses and chosen for their faded or used condition. Shabby chic is a form of interior design where furnishings or pieces of furniture are either chosen for their age and signs of wear and tear. Something that is Shabby chic is typically an item which is painted with many layers of paint and then distressed to reveal the underlayers giving it an aged appearance.
The essence of today's shabby chic style is vintage and antique furniture with the original aged paint, or painted white and distressed at the corners by sanding. pieces such as dressers, chests of drawers and occasional tables are popular in shabby chic décor
