Shabby Chic, Vintage & Industrial Style – Just do it yourself!

Veröffentlicht am von

Are you looking for inspiration for your own do it yourself project?

Then you are perfectly right on my website!

My original website is in German and I am just about to transfer all of my project into this English version. So, this website is currently under construction. Sorry for that! But maybe you will already find what you are looking for! 😉

Chair, table or a complete room? These are my most recent projects – or at least those I translated most recently from my German website. 😉

So who is running this DIY website?

I am Leonie, a German DIY Blogger, so please forgive me for my everything but perfect English. 😊 I love all kinds of DIY challenges, I love paint, tools, wood. I love to try out new products, materials and techniques. And I love to finish a project and the feeling of pride that comes along with it. In Germany a hardware store chain has the slogan “Respekt, wer’s selber macht”, which basically wants to say “Respect to those who do it themselves”. And that is very much the spirit that I feel in my DIY life. Do it yourself and you will know what I mean. I promise to you, you will love your new beautiful piece even more and you will want show it to the whole world! 😉

I work with plenty sorts of paint. That is usual varnish but also more special products like chalk paint, milk paint, effect paint and more. Besides painting I work with various techniques to transform old or just boring furniture and home accessories into the most beautiful pieces. Sometimes I even build my own furniture, like my rustic loft-style dining table, redesign complete rooms or just create wall designs – Most of it in my own house.

So please feel free to browse through my projects and to get inspired! 😊

You need some more explanation? More details on used materials and techniques? Then visit my German site www.shabby-it-yourself.de. Even if you are not speaking German, my website might help you with the one or other question. For some of my projects you can find videos on my Youtube channel. Some of them have an English Subtitle. So maybe you’ll find your answers there?

You already finished a great Shabby Chic project? I’d love to show your pictures here! So please send them to my email address and I will share them with all the other DIY fans out there! 😊
