  • Shabby Chic

    A new store is openning in town featuring antique, vintage and "shabby chic".
    was hoping to approach with scroll sawn items.
    But... do not know what will fit this venture...if anything.
    any ideas would be appreciated...
    So far iv'e come up with scroll sawn fancy porch brackets and corbels...

    Hi Rob,

    Whereabouts in Western Pa are you from?

    I admit, when I first saw the phrase "shabby chic", scroll saw items were the last thing it brought to mind. But then again, what do I know? I would suggest speaking personally to the proprieter of the new shop to see what kind of items they are selling. Maybe take some pictures of your work along to show them.

      Shelves with a distressed look, try crackle paint on them. Welcome signs, key racks, portraits with distressed frames. Just take a few minutes and make your items look distressed fro the shabby and make some elegant looking ones for the chic side. Votive candle holders, luminaries.

        I associate "Shabby Chic" (which is a copywrited/trademarked name by the way...) with the manner of painting style. As Mike said, the crackled paint along w/roses and ribbons etc.
        Since the store is also selling antiques and vintage items, you may find that not everything will fall under the shabby chic lable and that they will accept the scrolled items too.

            I knew a shabby chick once.
            Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

                Glad things worked out.

                I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

                Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

                So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
