Vintage images are great for shabby chic decor projects

Easy, easy, shabby chic decor accent piece. Just find your favorite vintage graphics, print them out in the size of your choice and frame them in a wood frame that has a vintage appeal to it.  This is a great way to make very inexpensive finishing touches for a room that is using a particular theme. If you need a bold piece you can go large without busting the bank.

Victorian images are especially useful for a shabby chic theme and there are tons of them out here online, many of them are free and when you’re looking for something in particular you can usually find it for $3 or $4 on Etsy or by searching blogs.  Roses, birds, butterflies and bees are popular and offer opportunities for adding strong color accents without really interrupting the decorating theme.
