Shabby Chic

I have a confession to make:

I am a Guy and I love to decorate!

There, I said it!

With that said, one of my favorite kind of styles is Shabby Chic. I love French Country too. I have seldom decorated using the style though. You will see in this pic a little piece of Shabby Chic where I painted a set of shutters and made them look a little distressed looking:

Doing that is just the begining. I am currently working on a project that, even if you don't love it, I will. Since Jennifer and I got married we have not had a headboard for our bed and really haven't had the need for one until we moved into our new house. So, stay tuned for pics of our new headboard. And just a side note...this Friday we will be celebrating our 5 year Anniversary!

After I finish with the headboard I have a few other pieces of furniture that I will redo. And I have an idea for our foyer and for our bathroom. I know, I know, I am a glutten for punishment. As if I don't have enough to keep me busy I add more stuff to my to-do list. Jennifer has never had to give me a "honey-do" list. I make my own!

So...who's ready to see the new headboard? Stay tuned...

Shabby Chic/cottage/French Country. Yes! Yes! Yes! My favorites too. Of course with a mixture of retro. I'm very eclectic. We should go to some estate sales some day together.
Can't wait to see the headboard!
