23 Ways to Add Farmhouse Style to Your Home
#1 ~ buffet and shelving
It's no secret that we moved to the country over a year ago and are renovating a cottage we are staying in until we build our forever home. I've been collecting pictures when I go out and about for my many ideas of things I'd like to add to my home when it's built. Multiple ideas fill my mind and keep my creative juices flowing and I thought I would share with you today....things I'm considering for my home.
#2 ~ rolling kitchen island with open storage
#3~ old door hung sideways with a favorite mural painted on it
#4 ~ every farmhouse needs an old rocker ( I have just the one)
#5 ~ farm lamp #6 ~ light bulb vase w/ fresh rosemary #7 ~ recycle old utensils
#8 ~ use brown and black burlap for curtains #9 ~ chandelier that looks like candles
#10 ~ use thick rope to cover cords #11 ~ cover a favorite light or shade w/ burlap
#12 built- in shelving to store wood indoors
#13 ~ using metal shelving for an open wet bar concept
#14 ~ moveable storage option with lots of drawers for storage ( seeds and herbs would be great in here)
#15 ~ handmade paper towel holder from the plumbing department
#16~ visiting the plumbing department for napkin rings
#17 ~ toilet paper holder made from plumbing parts
#18 ~ using dish towels as napkins
#19 ~ portable table and bar stools to eat on ( makes it easier to clean around)
#20 ~ open storage for herb garden ( makes it handy to grab while cooking )
#21 ~ use an old door and paint w/ chalkboard paint and use for menus.
#22 ~ use old whiskey barrel tops and hang for art
#23 ~ make a faucet out of plumbing part ( love this)
I've also thought of using rope to tie my curtains onto the rods and using the letters EIEIO when you walk in the house just for some fun.
Oh the life of a farmer and a daydreamer.
So do you think you would use any of these ideas?
I know I am. My hubby jokes that I take pictures everywhere we go but it's a way that I chronicle my ideas.
To see the magic I worked on our little cafe on a super tight budget go here. ( yes I decorate everywhere I go that's why I don't get my own stuff done.)
Now to get back to work still waiting on more baby goats to get here.
