A "Chic and Shabby" office design

I always wanted to create a space in our home for my office in a way that I create space in my booths at the stores where I sell.... this is my chippy, shabby, rusty office design :)

Very cool copper hardware... my honey likes to use it as his coat rack LOL !

Layered perfection!

Peeling veneer isn't easy to replace, so I add primitive weathered wood over the top for a quick fix.

My grandpa's chandelier... chain covered with grain bags.

The ladder is resting on the door at the other end, and this end is suspended with the heavy rusty chain.

A Christmas gift from my son.... the perfect finish :)

Can't get enough of the Shabby Look!

A vintage vanity with no mirror makes a VERY nice desk :)
The antique ironing board had a broken rivet, so the legs were removed and
it was a perfect board for a laundry sign!

I sold this cabinet to a local dealer, and to my suprise, I saw it
on display at one of the weekend flea markets ... that was fun!

Antique school desk .... I painted white over the dark green and gave
it a "once over" with the sander.

All I had to do to this mahagony painted desk was shabby the edges.

A freebie.... makes a cool room screen. I added the paint, burlap, silks and twine.

Chicken coop + window with paint graphics = coffee table !
