It's just that it's such a great way to furnish your home on a budget.
If you have an eye for picking out the right pieces, if you're handy with a few easy-to-use tools, and if you're creative when it comes to sanding, painting, and things like that, you can do so much with so little.
I'm ready to steal all these ideas to decorate the rooms in my house.
Maybe you'll want to steal a few of them, too.
1. This Kitchen Shelf
The color is adorable. The crockery is adorable. The idea is genius. Seriously, if you have a small kitchen without a lot of storage, a shelf like this can hang right on the wall.
2. French Bed
French Provincial furniture works perfectly with the shabby chic trend. This is the kind of bed that practically ensures sweet dreams.
3. This Living Room
Everything about this room is perfection, but I am especially living for that clock. I need that.
4. This Nightstand
Now, here's the key thing to remember about shabby chic décor: you can get inventive with anything. You can turn anything into something pretty yet practical.
5. This Bedroom
Oh, that canopy! You know, if you're handy, it's actually fairly easy to turn any bed into a canopy bed.
6. … or This One
Pay special attention to the accent chair in this lovely scene. Accent chairs can easily become nightstands, shelves, or accent tables. You're welcome.
7. This Writing Desk
This is gorgeous, partly because it's so simple. Even the refurbishing technique here is simple.
8. This Bathroom Décor
Yep. Sometimes all it takes is a simple basket or shelf.
9. This Bookcase
Doesn't much look like a bookcase, does it? If you have a piece like this, I promise you'll be the only one in the neighborhood who does.
10. This Ceiling
Lots of people make the mistake of neglecting the ceiling. However, it's surprisingly easy to shabby chic, plus it adds a layer of texture to any room.
11. Or This Living Room
Can you pick out all the fab shabby touches? And can I just say that displaying your clothes is an excellent way to decorate while simultaneously saving closet space?
12. This Kitchen
Oh, this kitchen! The table, the chairs, the cabinets, the clock, and those lights – I just want to live my whole life in this kitchen, tbh.
13. This Porch
Actually, scratch that, I want to live my whole life on this porch. Isn't this the most perfect porch you've ever seen?
14. This Swing
And a swing is the must-have accessory for any porch.
15. These Planters
Throw in a few planters so your porch life is full of flowers and greenery.
16. This Hutch
You could also use something like this in the bathroom – for the linen.
17. This Entrance
What better way to welcome people into your home?
