The shabby chic lounge!!

Well the lights going in yorkshire...and i`m snow blind from painting chairs, so I decided its best to sit on the computer looking at pretty pictures on other peoples blogs before realising i should just update my own!!I took some before pictures of the lounge etc at the new house which, though you cant tell from the pics had pale purple walls before, which didnt look bad but just wouldnt have gone with my shabby chic look! My husband has run off with my camera (just for a few hours!!)and as i`m now hellbent on blogging i`m putting on a picture i took of the lounge a few days ago, though i believe it has been slightly `tweeked` since then,even my daughter has started rearanging cushions and fluffing!! Interior designer in the making!!
 I have always had a bit of a problem with coffee tables...not that i want to hurt them or anything!!! They just often seem uninspiring pieces of furniture! In the past i have often used pouffes,trunks etc to avoid anything too sensible but i found this indonesian rocking cradle about 8 years ago and loved the shape so i painted it and its been following me around ever since... its so pretty! When i first got it i was living in a warehouse conversion in london and i dont think shabby chic/vintage was as popular as now so i know some judgements have been made about my shabby objects in the past,most people thought my lounge tables where bought to be painted when i got them!
Before and after  
The shop is now working quite nicely as a backdrop for pictures which is great and when i`m finished the space should be good for various backdrops and style variations though i must admit i have been sticking with my trusty old neutral shades, my niece nearly died of shock when i admitted i was thinking about painting a french style bedside cabinet a deep pink and distressing it!!!!! I`ll keep you posted on that one.  I have to mention a lovely pressie i got sent recently with some bits i ordered off ebay,they are the letterblocks spelling out FiFiChic on the dresser,they are 3 fabulous mums who handmake lovely craft items and do craft fairs etc `Handmade by us 3` they have a facebook page of the same name and they make fantastic items at very reasonable prices,check out their customised items,you can have your own pretty shabby chic keyrings, letterblocks etc. Anyway the kids are about to come in...so bye for now xFiFi

As the neutral shades in the cabinet are available so thought of painting the cabinet colored be pink will be cool enough! Thanks for the snaps of the customized items. It's looking really nice.
