Shabby Rose

Whitewashed shabby chic furniture with a lovely old world, vintage feel, was the inspiration for my latest fabric design.

Over the years, I have restored many wonderful pieces of old furniture, with a splash of white paint and some elbow grease, to rub back various areas of paint.
Looking at my one of my "shabby chic" side tables, (while relaxing with a nice hot cup of tea ;) got me thinking ... "why should furniture have all the fun?"


The result of that thought is "Shabby Rose" - a vintage inspired "shabby chic" fabric featuring 
soft lemon/tea coloured roses, distressed against a teal textured background :)

Shabby Rose 

I am looking forward to adding a collection of fabrics to co-ordinate with "Shabby Rose" soon :)

  6. This is such a beautiful fabric! Possibly my favourite of all of yours I've seen so far! :-) Would love to see the whole coordinating collection.

    I've always wanted to try my hand at restoring old furniture - perhaps I should put it on my to-do-list.

    I totally see this with a white chair too, by the way!
