Janet Coon launched, Shabbyfufu the blog, as an offshoot of our website Shabbyfufu.com that began in the 90’s with a long standing love of “all things vintage”.
“I seek to inspire beautiful living on a budget, as I’ve been able to accomplish in my own home that we have lived in for over twenty years now.”
Our home in South Florida was purchased for it’s location in a quiet suburban area with great schools for our then very young children. It was an ugly fixer~upper when we found it after searching and scouring the area for several months. Although I don’t have “before” pictures to share, it was long neglected with ’70’s brown shag carpet, smoker stained walls, an overgrown yard and the original dated rooms. We were up for the challenge and over the years of remodeling and additions have made it our own nest.
We have been fortunate to have had our home featured in many fine publications both nationally and internationally, such as Better Homes & Garden’s Cottage Style magazine, Flea Market Style, Flea Market Decorating, Romantic Homes, Romantic Country, Shabby Style and countless others.
In addition to blogging Janet Coon maintains the home decor website Shabbyfufu and works as a stylist and photographer for magazines both within the U.S and overseas. We have a family construction business and are available locally for home building and remodeling in the Miami area.
