Shabby Chic 2

Would you like to learn how to give your old fashioned frames or furniture a quick aged look? Shabby Chic is the term given to the kind of antiquing that will fit in with any type of interior. It can look Mediterranean, Italian, French, Swedish or English Country House. You can make it look as old as you like, and have it in the colour you like.

“This Victorian desk of mine was destroyed in a devastating flood two years ago. I repainted and distressed it , fitting a new leather top. It is now a very useful dressing table!” – Dorothy Boyer
