Shabby Chic Beds and Bed Frames
The term shabby chic was coined to describe fashionable items that looked worn out, distressed or used while still looking expensive and luxurious. The combination may seem confusing, but it works for most fashion items like shabby chic furniture and accessories.
How to Choose a Shabby Chic Bed or Bed Frame
A shabby chic bed or bed frame may look old and ratty from afar, but brand new and clean up close. Here are some examples and why they are considered shabby chic:
- Vintage Cane Weaved Bed Head: The classic weaving of the bed head embodies the vintage effect of the piece, but the quality and white colour makes it chic.
- Shabby Chic French Provincial Bed Head: The design shows a classic baroque French style, but the craftsmanship is modern because of the flat wooden headboard.
How to Make Your Own Shabby Chic Bed
Using your own bed, you can create a shabby chic effect using large quilts and wood polish. If you have a wooden bed, night stands or a dresser, you can change the colour to an aged brown or classic white to give it that chic style. Using fluffy, patterned quilts and pillows, you can create shabby chic bedding ensembles.
