Some Shabby Chic Antique Inspiration

A couple days ago I went and checked out Forget-Me-Not Antiques. It's a newer antique store in the Hyde Park area of Boise (they've only been open since October). And although I didn't really need anything, I just wanted to go see what they had. And...I loved the things they had! And even though all I ended up buying was a few big, wooden dominoes, I felt inspired! The store was a bit different in that there wasn't a lot of color...almost everything they had was neutral in color, and it made for a really unique look! (sorta reminded me of Rayette's "White Out" Challenge from the Craft Warehouse Blog Party this past weekend) are a few examples of  why I love "shabby chic" antiques...(check out the cool newspaper dress on the wire dress form and the paper wreath in the 3rd photo)...

  1. Cara, do you know anyone who is good at Shabby Chic decorating who could help me at a reasonable price? I love Shabby Chic items, but can't figure out how to put them together to make them "work"!
