Distressed White Floating Shelves and Cabinets
White is an excellent choice, especially if you have a smaller kitchen. This evergreen color makes your space look brighter and spacious than it is.
Add in some fresh pastel flowers such as light blue delphinium, pale green hydrangea, or soft yellow roses. Just above the small cabinetry, considering hanging a shabby chic artwork.
Antique Porcelain Sink
Do you have an incredibly beautiful accent piece like a porcelain sink? Let it shine! Ideally, it can feature an elegant wooden leg frame. Hang on it a pretty cross-stitched floral hand towel.
Vintage Kitchen Appliances
Add a warm nostalgic touch to your kitchen by using vintage appliances. You can get these from a local moving sale or from online stores. If these are not in good condition, you can get them refurbished or repainted in a suitable color that goes with the theme.
Use Vintage Linens
You can up the charm of your kitchen by using stylish vintage linens. For instance, tack lacy napkins inside the bottom panes of your glass-front cabinets. Top your new butcher-block countertops with mismatched lower cabinets.
Vases’ Must-Have Applique
Do you love DIY? Get some old, stylish wine bottles and decorate them. Use some ropes, faux pearls, paper, and lace. Get a quality hot glue gun to carefully fix all these on the bottles in an attractive manner. Mix and match different styles to create a splendid collection of vases for your kitchen.
Distressed Antique Curio Cabinet
When it comes to shabby chic kitchen décor, a curio cabinet is a must. This absolute gem displays small attractive items and makes your space look purposeful but not cluttered.
It should feature antique windows for doors so that you can peek into mason jars housed inside it. Sprinkle in some smaller items like salt and pepper shakers and some photographs of your family.
GolD-Trimmed Pink and White China
Do you want to soften up your tabletop or kitchen cabinets instantly? Put down doilies! Create a cute arrangement of stacked china and pink tea sets featuring floral patterns. Combine it with a lovely ceramic pitcher serving as a vase for fresh pink roses.
For this arrangement, choose china plates and salt shakers with gold trim. This will add some fancy touch to your shabby-chic display.
White Cabinetry With Metal Accents
Uplift the charm of your plain white cabinetry using glass votive jars featuring metal handles. Put other metallic items on display to make things look simple and neutral. When in doubt, add some metallic frames and flowers.
