Do you live in a dreamy French country farmhouse? Maybe you just wish you did? When I found some of the DIY ideas in this collection of shabby chic decor, with the clean look of white and floral, distressed chalky finishes, I found myself wishing my entire house could be decorated like this. Turns out, you can have this amazing shabby chic look for a lot less than you might imagine. I had been eying one of these benches at a local store, but could never afford the $1400 price tag. However, I am loving the $85 version I made last weekend. I am going to make some pillows for it this weekend and post pics for you, I know you are going to want one for yourself. From creative wall art ideas to handmade romantic bedding ideas, you are sure to fall in love with most, if not all of these DIY French country decor looks. Check out the oh so lovely step by step photo tutorials from some of the best DIY bloggers around to see how you, too can make these for your home. Stop dreaming of having this fantastic decor in your house someday and make it reality today.
