Let’s be honest – some websites just have that shabby chic feel about them, that old time-worn look that gives them a vintage and fresh look that has you simply green eyed over the great look. I’ve trawled the web to find where shabby chic is used, how it’s used and why it’s used and I’ve come up with a few great pages and blogs that will keep you inspired and give you many great shabby chic ideas to use in your upcoming projects whether they are traditional or digital.
Must see shabby chic sites
