Chippy Chic

Peeling paint looks so cool, doesn't it? It's not exactly healthy (lead in old paint, chips littering the floor and everything else), but when done in a controlled and safe manner purely for the aesthetics we love the look. Here are a few chipped paint looks for your home:

1 wood molding key rack by Cosa Verde, $19
2 This chipped paint paper from Scrap Girls is actually for scrapbooking, but think of all of the cool home decor things you could do with it. $3
3 distressing techniques from Shave Paint & Decor
4 Topographic Map by Lynne Prestebak via Red Bubble, from $17 for an 8x12 print up to $154 for a large framed print or canvas
