Chic Chateau: Repurposed Never Looked So Good!


Lots of plans are in the works for this year's Chic Chateau charity showhouse tour which will take place at the end of September! 

We have design teams hard at work coordinating their rooms and colors for the two Chic houses and scouring area consignment shops, Habitat ReStores and flea markets for furnishings and accessories for their rooms!  And builders are pushing ahead with the two Chic houses that will be ready for the tour to begin on September 21st!  

While we will keep the design plans under wraps for the time being we invite you to take a look at some awesome re-purposing ideas that really underscore our Chic Chateau premise! Visit the Muddy Boot Decor Facebook Page to see how some gals in upstate New York are giving discarded items new life! www.facebook.com/MuddyBootsDecor...

And check out an idea from a past Chic.....how you can take scrap metal, an old door and a glass top...
