Are you excited about shabby chic DIY projects? I know I am. I think it’s a fun way to put worn, dated items out on display in a cute, pleasing way. Instead of throwing out old ceiling fans, faded wood, and rusted tin buckets, we can re-purpose them. Here are three DIY projects that give worn out items a stylish new life!
1. Ceiling fan into garden decor
Turn a ceiling fan into a pretty decoration by painting the fan blades, and fastening it to a post of wood. When the wind blows, the blades will turn! It’s a fun way to add a spash of color into your yard or garden.
2. Bathtub flower bed
Beautiful claw-foot tubs make great garden beds. Place one behind a shallow bed to add an extra level. Fill with flowers that will overflow and drape over the edges, for a romantic, charming look.
3. Window pane green house
Some old windows are just too quaint to throw away. Instead of bringing old windows to the dump, turn them into a greenhouse. That way, when the nights turn cold you’ll have a sheltered place for your delicate plants.
The shabby chic style is all about putting pleasantly worn items out on display. The weathered look of wood, the peeling paint of a bathtub, or the retro design of a fan can be very attractive!
