101 Prettiest Pinterest Shabby Chic - My Picks

Bonjour!

Do you enjoy DIY shabby chic or only buy finished products?

Published January 26, 2014 by Mary McShane

If you have just recently discovered shabby chic décor, Welcome!

The shabby chic look is attracting new admirers for clothing, accessories, furniture, artwork, flower arranging and interior design.

Shabby chic "anything" is very much in demand.

Shabby chic collectors do not limit themselves to one style or design. Inside this overall category of shabby chic lives several niches, but not limited to: homemade, vintage, Parisian, cottage, country, French, shaker, nostalgia and chateau.

Those who like DIY projects have no worries about the final product looking homemade. In fact, that's part of its charm. Shabby chic has lots of versatility: from rustic, vintage, elegant to professional styles.

No material or color scheme is off limits.

NOTE: There are two DIY (do it yourself) videos at the end of this hub. I love doing easy projects, however I can't sew and I'm not exceptionally crafty with paints or intricate work. But I can and have made the projects in these videos. One video is short and one is a little longer but both have very detailed instructions. I chose easy project videos to feature to encourage visitors to give DIY a try.

Feel free to pin anything here to your Pinterest boards. I have noted sources where I was able. This hub was flagged for overly promotional using Pinterest links, so I tried to include user names wherever possible so you can locate their boards that way.

Here are my top favorites from my boards and from other Pinterest users. Enjoy!

Shabby Chic Home Décor

Shabby chic décor has become so popular that many crafters are furnishing your home and mine with their DIY projects.

If you go religiously to the flea markets and craft shows, you can get better bargains than buying at high end specialty shoppes.

@billybuc

Thank you Bill. Oh, I do know I have committed a cardinal sin of topic writing here by restricting my audience mostly to women. But I'm counting on women to visit, pin the pix or pass the hub on to their friends.

So to the men who stop by this hub: thank you for coming to visit and please do pass it on to your wives or significant others.

Pinterest is an addictive form of online scrapbooking and shabby chic décor is only a small part of it. However it has a large following, of which I am just one. I love it enough to feature a hub about it and hope others will find their way here to view - either by happenstance or by the gentlemen passing it on to the gals.

Thank you, Bill :)

I couldn't figure out what the title meant; when I saw the pictures I realized why I was confused. :) I'll pass this one to Bev. Nice job, Mary.

@Jodah,

Hi John, Ya, I can see how this wouldn't rate high with the gentlemen, but I thank you just the same for taking time to read it. Let your wife have a look lol. Thanks for your visit, comment and vote :)

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on January 27, 2014:

Hi Mary, this is not really my type of topic but my wife would love it. The hub is wonderfully written with wonderful images (great for shabby chic lovers to share on Pinterest) and great tutorial videos. I can appreciate the amount of work put into it, vote up. Well done.
