What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Tie your room together, Shabby Chic-style. Whitewash is king in this style. Use it to tone down wood moldings and beams and to give furniture a clean, classic look. But don’t stop there: Whitewash the floors for a bright, airy feel. This style works with distressed finishes, sanded finishes and pickled finishes. All of them work together, but choose your finish based on material and use. New wood should be pickled, rough wood should be painted and furniture and cabinetry should be glazed. Use color and pattern in seat cushions and hardware for a warm and whimsical finish.
