DIY Farmhouse Pendant Lights
These are some of my favorite DIY’s to date. I made two lights for our master bedroom update for around $40! And the bonus part is they are super easy. A few simple cuts with a miter saw, stain, glue, screws, and done – industrial farmhouse pendant lights. You can’t beat $40 for 2 lights!
One of the easiest ways to incorporate farmhouse style decor is to makeover your existing furniture. Typically, when I think of farmhouse style, I think white paint and chippy. But that’s not the end all, be all when it comes to furniture. Gray, cream, white, black, green, navy – pick what you love and go for it. Even traditional style furniture can get a farmhouse vibe like this buffet.
Wood signs, vintage metal signs, metal letters – they are all classic farmhouse style elements that you can DIY for some old charm in your home. This DIY sign from Unoriginal Mom is perfect and a cost saver for sure. It’s a genius way to make your own version of an expensive idea. And even if you don’t have a Silhouette, grab a stencil and draw your own letters.
This windmill decor is one of my absolute favorite DIY’s from Sadie Seasongoods! What a brilliant idea for repurposing old ceiling fan blades and turning them into the perfect farmhouse decor DIY. If you’ve got a saw and some creative vision like Sarah, you can do this!
Add some inexpensive rustic DIY’s to your home like this super easy and super cheap DIY Rustic Planter. I made this in less than 30 minutes with a box I found for $3 at the Target Dollar Spot. I threw in some faux greenery and roses that likely came from the Dollar Tree and now I have a perfect little farmhouse centerpiece.
Farmhouse style and shiplap are like two peas in a pod. Not everyone loves the trend, but I certainly do. Is it going to end up being the paneling of the 70s that everyone couldn’t wait to get rid of? Who knows? But to me, it’s classic and perfectly farmhouse. You don’t have to commit to an entire house of shiplap. Do an accent wall, one room, an island – this trend works great in small doses. Check out these stunning shiplap tutorials to get some major inspiration.
