Some people might look at furniture and decor that’s worn and aging and see something that should be thrown out. If you’re anything like us, however, then you see the potential for a beautifully rustic looking upcycling project! After all, things that are a little stylishly shabby are really just well loved and well used!
Check out these 15 gorgeous shabby chic projects that will make your home feel lived in and friendly.
1. Tin can cutlery holder
Stylish Eve walks you through the process of creating a cutlery sorter out of tin cans! This will be handy if you’re serving a meal on the patio and need to carry out many sets of silverware.
2. Decorative wooden spoons
Red Brolly suggests saving worn out wooden spoons from the trash can by wrapping their handles with pretty scrapbooking paper and tying them in a little bundle with burlap string. Hang the bundle on the wall or rest it on a counter to add a little shabby chic to your kitchen.
3. Torn fabric window hanging
Homemade Interest shows you how to create adorable hanging decor that will frame the top of your window simply by tearing and tying strips of pretty coloured or patterned fabric along thick twine. This is a great way to use up old fabric scraps that you don’t have enough of for other projects but still want to make use of!
4. Worn frame and tin flower hanger
Cottage Flair suggests using an old, worn picture frame even if the glass has long since been broken and thrown away! Try placing it around a vintage tin wall hanging to accentuate a cute floral arrangement, embracing its chips and scratches.
