5 Beautiful Brocante DIY Projects To Die For
First, I must offer this little disclaimer about the title: they’re only to die for if you’re a huge fan of shabby french things (Brocante style) and the word Brocante is the french term for Flea Market. It’s my all time dream to go antiquing in the South of France. oooOoo I can picture myself walking through the streets of Provence, holding as much as I can carry. With a gigantic hand bag FULL of linens and fabulous finds. I can live in hope, right? All I need to do.. is become a bajillionaire.
I’m quite excited about all the lovely posts I’m featuring today and I hope you love them too!
I have a stool in my home that is in need of a serious makeover. Unfortunately, it’s not like this lovely stool, it’s small and woven so it’s difficult to do things to the top. I really adore this stool makeover, I think the rosette edging is a wonderful touch!
Everyone on Pinterest seems to have gone crazy with crates and palettes; seeing what wonders can be created from all of this wood! I love the grey wash on this little crate makeover and it looks like a fabulous pet bed. I wouldn’t make it for my cat because her sleeping spot changes regularly!
I absolutely LOVE this little ring dish DIY! It’s marvellous. I’m sure some of you have a little Eifel tower knocking about your house! I have an Eiffel tower pencil sharpener. I would love to visit Paris again. I’m tempted to enter this competition to win a weekend over there. Again, I can hope and dream! The tutorial for this ring dish is in French, so you will need to use a translation website.
I think I will be making these. The gorgeous blogger behind Tidbits blog had the genius idea of using rubber bands around a rolling-pin to get the continuous 3 stripes down the towel.
This shabby linen pouch tutorial is available on Stitch Craft Create and it has been taken from a book called French Country Chic. I’ve done an image search and only found two other projects from said book and I’m still interested. At £3 i might have to treat myself!
Now, I want to know, do you have any ideas of Brocante style items that are possible to DIY? I’m trying to update my decor for Autumn and I don’t want to go for the traditional autumn colours. I was going to go for Brocante/Shabby chic style with touches of baby pink and burgundy/wine. I have a teeny budget so any ideas are going to be put to good use!
