Shabby Painted Furniture
October 3rd, 2009

Late 19th C. Louis XVI Style Hand Painted Demilune Commode Ruby lane540Shabby chic/Cottage Style is gaining popularity as people are looking to open up their spaces with the use of whiter or pastels.Furniture pieces are often painted with many layers showing through obviously worn areas.Fabrics tend to lean towards the cottons and linens. Linen was found in the french homes, and is particular popular today in reproducing this look. Whites and pastels that are bleached out give a beach like presence to a Shabby chic look. A unique way of antiquing fabric is to stain it with tea which gives it that old vintage style.

Popular decor items are pillows made of vintage barkcloth fabric, vintage linens, chenille bedspreads, vintage chandeliers, and anything with roses on it. It is a soft, relaxed romantic way of decorating that looks comfortable and inviting.

Pink, mint green, and soft aqua are also popular colors seen in accessories and fabrics. Colors like Yellow, white, Grayish-Green, lighter pastels are very popular paint colors used on furniture.

Swedish Paint techniques and Paint techniques for Shabby style are the same, athough the style of furniture are often different.

- Distressed looks are achieved by painting your furniture 2 colors. After the last paint dries, you can sand down revealing the first coat of paint. This technique looks amazing when starting off with a darker color such as black, and using your top coat a lighter color such as white.

-White Washing (this technique is very easy and is called by many names) It is simply by applying a opaque (see-through) glaze or by painting then rubbing away the paint, or sanding away the top coat to show the wood or base coats. This technique allows you to see the beauty of the grain but still have the beauty of a painted piece
