If you love to collect things, have you considered adding one or two Gumtree shabby chic to your collection? For those who are not into collecting things or shabby chic, this may be the perfect addition for your home. You can place these on your living room table, dining room table, kitchen counter, fireplace mantel and more! If you choose to add them to your living room, you may want to place two in each corner of the room and plan to place a plant in each one. Your guests will think you’re really going to fall in love with this shabby chic addition!
Another great way to incorporate Gumtree shabby chic decorating is to use farmhouse chairs to decorate your dining tables. This is such a fun look to try on. You can have fun with it by placing three chairs with a table between them and have a unique arrangement. Decorate your entire dining room with farmhouse chair covers, adding some pillows to the chairs and a basket of fruit on the table. You can use this in the evening when you host your friends or family.
To create beautiful Gumtree shabby chic kitchen cabinets, you need to start by cleaning and repainting your existing kitchen cabinets. If there are any wood surfaces on your cabinets, you will need to sand them down to give them an aged look. Once you have sanded them down, stain them in a variety of colors to match your Gumtree kitchen cabinets. You will probably find that darker colors work better than lighter ones. Then you simply apply a coordinating kitchen stain to the front of your cabinets, to cover any imperfections.
For the second step, you need to add a few coordinating accessories to your kitchen. These include a new shabby chic coffee table and an oil rubbed bronze candle holder. The coffee table base, which is made of solid wood shabby chic style, can be easily found at any home improvement center. It looks great with an old rosewood table.
For your third step, choose the right decor for your kitchen design. If you are working on a shabby chic kitchen design, then you can add a Victorian accent through using aged wood like pine, mahogany, and oak. In addition to using solid oak or walnut for your solid wood shabby chic cabinets, you can also use aged wood pieces like a table or a cabinet with a painted or distressed finish. In this case, you can use any type of wood that will enhance your overall design. The table base and the kitchen wall cabinet can both use an oil rubbed bronze finish.
Fourth, add coordinating accessories to your kitchen. Choose the right colors for the walls and the kitchen wall cabinet. You can go for an antique color scheme or choose a modern red or black paint. Both styles will look fantastic with an oil rubbed bronze finish. On the other hand, if you are going for a more shabby chic style, then go for a very worn out look that features a stained wood look to it. This will be a perfect combination for an antique style cabinet.
Lastly, you need to install a dining table in your design. This will complete the shabby chic design. As mentioned earlier, you can go for an antique table, but you can also choose a modern dining set for your kitchen. As long as the dining table is made of solid pine, oak, or maple, then your design is complete.
The last step is to make sure that you are working with a great material that will last through the whole project. Here, again, you have a number of options. You can use an aged looking wooden frame to house your table. Or you can opt for an oil rubbed bronze finish for your farmhouse dining table. Again, either option will work perfectly. If you want to create an antique feel, then go for farmhouse chairs with a distressed finish while shabby chic style dining chairs can have a nice clean finish.
