Antique with Rustic Appeal
Probably we can call it a corner shabby chic cabinet with rustic feel. It’s obvious that the cabinet’s primary material is the organic wooden. With darker finish, it looks naturally interesting, giving a contrasting visual against the clean lines interior.
Charming White Accented by Handcrafting Details
All white finish on this cabinet seems making monotone look. Accent it with handcrafting details inserted along the cabinet’s doors and use other old-fashioned pieces as the highlights. This window shutter and side table are the examples.
Vertical Wood-Panelings as the Accents
Redesign your old basic wardrobe by adding vertical wood-panelings as most stylish door. It’s free to choose the panel colors, consider using the colors that fit the basic facade’s tone. Also remember to select the schemes precisely referred to the eclectic themes.
Grey is Fine, the Design’s Details are the Importance
Eclectic style isn’t always pastels. Light grey can create very distinctive tone directing to shabby chic or vintage. But, it needs to be supported by the old-look design. This display cabinet, for instance, is physically designed in vintage, exposing the clear glass paneling and the obvious wooden buttons as the importance.
Handmade Finish for Wardrobe
It’s not easy to get this unique color scheme applied on the wardrobe. It’s the handmade and uses the oldest Provencal method. The homeowner says the finishing is made of wood ash (you can get it from the chimney) that then is mixed with the binder of acrylic. The paste then is applied on the wardrobe.
Play with Classic Details
I love this armoire. It’s full of handcrafting details. About the design, it’s so simple but rich in visual appearance. The color combination is also awesome, contrasting the dark and glowing wood color for the accent. The armoire looks great with this furniture setting.
Vintage that Brings Rustic Theme
This armoire is exactly fantastic. It also gives rustic and vintage as well. I definitely look the beauty behind this shabby appearance, and the color makes it so obvious among the green walls.
Shabbily Deep Color for Buffet
I love the corner buffet accented by a hand-painted picture in the center, but I love more the buffet next to it. The color powerfully creates a shabbily deep blue tone, and in the center it has the darker brown background, a perfect space for displaying lots of colorful antiques.
Make Your Old Cabinet as the Direct Point
When we’re focusing on this old cabinet, we will ask is it just for the rolls of tissue? Whatever the purpose, the design obviously presents a vintage piece. With clear glass panel and shabby white frames, the cabinet looks so adorable in this bathroom.

If you want to create a shabby chic bathroom, it’s much better to complete the space with all vintage pieces. Not merely the fixtures, some furniture sets are also purposed as the secondary pieces that beautifully garnish the room. The narrow cabinet and the ornate firebox are the examples.
