Shabby chic is an easy and affordable way to create a charming bedroom. Form an elegant look that has an aged essence and a feminine atmosphere thatâ€™s brought forward via lots of lovely pastel colours. Itâ€™s a modern theme thatâ€™s sure to impress.
Shabby Chic DÃ©cor
Typically, shabby chic decoration involved soft colours, such as creams and pastel pinks whilst using white as the base. Add lots of dÃ©cor with butterflies, hearts and birds for a calming bedroom thatâ€™s also full of life. I definitely think itâ€™s the leading choice in modern girlâ€™s bedroom ideas.
One of the reasons I adore shabby chic bedrooms is because it encourages light into the room, making it a timeless interior choice whatever the weather outside.
By adding unique items and vintage furniture youâ€™re bound to create the ultimate chic look. Hereâ€™s how you can customise old furniture and do it yourself…
How to Create Your Own Shabby Chic Furniture
Up-cycle old items to create your very own shabby chic furniture!
If youâ€™re wondering how to paint furniture with a vintage look then here is how:
- Find a second-hand or old metal or wooden furniture
- If itâ€™s wooden, sand it down to the remove broken, mouldy or the old, unattractive surface
- Paint it white
- For the perfect antique look use dark wax
Why not go further to create a contemporary, custom look too? Use letter stencils and paint it a silver or soft gold hue? Try just painting a word, such as â€˜chicâ€™ or go further by painting a whole phrase like â€˜live, laugh, loveâ€™.
Now youâ€™ve created white bedroom furniture with an elegant vintage look, but donâ€™t only create a shabby chic bed â€“ you can also up-cycle mirrors and picture frames as well as tables and chairs!
