Distressed White and Shabby Chic

The look of Shabby Chic and distressed white items are popping up everywhere. Scads of magazines offer up ideas and displays all capturing the romance that these pieces exude. Blogs from all around are exemplifying gentility and grace that lend themselves to this style.

These are just a few of the pieces we offer on Nunnie's Attic, Inc. Could you find a little corner for that table in your house? Or maybe your dining room is in need of a new chandelier. There is something to be said for that clean look that only white can give. Having 3 dirty boys in my house I can't capitalize on that look. But someday, when the boys have grown and gone, maybe then I'll be able to have that computer room or reading corner where I don't have to worry about the outside dirt making it's way inside and onto my pieces.

And kudos from this corner to all of the beautiful displays of yellow roses yesterday. You all have such a gift for beauty and design. I can't wait to see who the winner will be.

Have a great Saturday everyone! Enjoy the weekend!!

What are you doing either a. up so late or b. up so early? I can't sleep!

I think it sounds like you should get the Hu Hot franchise over there in PA.

Love the distressed white and shabby chic... wish DH did!

I get up to send my hubby off to work. It's a habit now and even though he tells me to sleep, I feel guilty (sigh). So I get up!

I want to eat at Hu's! It looks so yummy!

Hi Julie~ LOVE those things you are offering esp. the chandelier. The toilet paper holder is cute too! :)

I love that "Blackbird" song who sings that I didn't see a artist name.

Hello! I would love white shabby things too, but with black dog, one furry kitty and a messy husband and son, I am afraid I'd be stressed out cleaning all the time. I love the look though!!

You decorating is so adorable! Great star over the mantel!!! Your porch is very inviting, too!!

I do love that chandelier. I almost clicked to buy it for my new boutique closet. But I just bought some curtain rods this afternoon for my dining room, so I better wait a bit. So the hubby doesn't think I am going overboard, you know. But I will check back sometime, I will need a lot of chandeliers to get the look I am after! :-)

Have a great rest of your weekend!
