Shabby chic is cool! It is a type of interior decorating that uses furniture and fabric that appear “pleasantly old” and just slightly worn. Often the furniture is a bit mismatched and the colors are usually soft.
Match the pictures of the wood finishes with their definitions:
• Distressed wood = wood that has been processed to give it an antique look, sometimes with wire brushing or hand scraping
• Hand scraped hardwood, aka hand sculptured hardwood = wood that has been scraped smooth and left with scrape marks
• Reclaimed hardwood = wood from a broadleaved tree that has been salvaged from a previous use and recycled
• Weathered wood = wood that has been exposed to the sun, rainfall, or salt water
