Romantic Shabby Chic Style Office

26 Aug

I recycled a medicine chest my girlfriend was ditching. There was a great opportunity to decoupage and create a one of a kind shelf. It did not have to be repainted and I was able to apply leftover wallpaper from the wall behind, to the underside of the shelves.

I decoupaged old piano music and book pages from 1898. My father happened to find them in a wall when remodeling an old house.

How I love to create non conventional pieces which are recycled, old and rusty.

The look is exactly what I am striving for…shabby chic, romantic, cottage.

the same girlfriend disposing of the medicine chest was also getting rid of this wonderful piece of office furniture, a particle board desk. Hideous, I know. However, we can work with this. I have started by gluing cork board squares to the front and sides.

Across the top is also cut cork board. To add shabby chic detail, door hanger scrapbook embellishments were adhered.

Any piece of furniture can be transformed, don’t let anyone tell you differently.

Happy Planting!!  www.dianadigsdirt.com
