A guide to buying Chabby chic dining room furniture

Shabby chic dining room furniture is at home in both cottage and country style. Shabby chic is a decorating style where things look old, worn and slightly mismatched in purpose. Most shabby chic furniture is white or lighter colours, and is often made up of various kinds of wood. If you are buying chabby chic dining furniture, this article provides you with a few options for how to buy.

Buy authentic

One of the cheapest ways to achieve a chabby chic decorating look is to do it authentically. In other words, you may buy older or more worn or "shabby" purchases and use them to fill your dining room. You can find a shabby table at a flea market or at a thrift store or garage sale. You can either leave the table in its shabby form that you find it in, perhaps with cracks, stains or dents, or you can paint the table and choose or create some painted chairs. Paint It is common or shabby chic decor to also have peeling paint, so you don't need to worry if your paint job doesn't come out exactly perfect, it will all aid to the shabby feel. You also don't need to worry much about having all pieces of furniture as a perfect match. You can buy oak tables, for example, but not necessarily have to pair them with matching cock chairs. Upholstered chairs or even modern chairs would create a little twist, and keep the shabby and casual vibe going.

Buy furniture store shabby

Another option, and a perhaps more expensive one is to buy furniture designed to look shabby chic from a furniture store. This means that you are buying furniture that is designed to look slightly older or shabbier, even when it is brand new. This is sought of along the same idea as buying jeans with holes already in them. Shabby chic style of decorating
Many country furnishings stores and stores that sell French furniture cater to the shabby chic style of decorating, so you can find these types of shops both online and locally to see what they have to offer. Even when buying a painted dining table or other shabby chic table or shabby chic furniture from a furniture store, you do want to make sure that you don't get too much that matches perfectly, as that would take away from the shabby chic aesthetic.
