Shabby Chic Furniture

I couldn't work as much as I wanted, but fortunately I have something to show you. I decided to make furniture which I can use in my future projects if no one wants to buy them.
I applied several layers of water based paint to get the "real" affect and use some of my favourite colours: muted pale pink, greyish blue with white, verbena green and pale cream (these two will be finished by next week.... I hope so...).
Here are the pale pink cupboard, which is a real treat to a romantic woman, wallpapered with toile de Jouy and baroque patterns, filled with an aged toile de Jouy pillow (same pattern as the paper on the shelves) and a toiletry basket.

I decided to paint a small table which goes well with the cupboard and plan to make a bed and a chair to complete a bedroom interior.

Here comes my personal favourite, the pale greyish blue desk with "marble" top. The door is decorated with wallpaper and the same pattern were repeated inside the drawers.

I made a small table too in matching colour, which is suitable for embroidering or reading.

I think the fake marble top came out quite well.

I hope you like them :) More will come on next week!

See you soon,

  1. Great job! I loved the cabinet with its interior lined, as the desk drawer!
