By Lyndsie

I'm really into the shabby chic décor trend. No duh, right? It's just that it's such a great way to furnish your home on a budget. If you have an eye for picking out the right pieces, if you're handy with a few easy-to-use tools, and if you're creative when it comes to sanding, painting, and things like that, you can do so much with so little. I'm ready to steal all these ideas to decorate the rooms in my house. Maybe you'll want to steal a few of them, too.
