1. Old and Weathered Farmhouse Style Ladder Rack

Old and Weathered Ladder Rack

Every home ends up having that old fashioned wooden ladder that ends up needing to be replaced or just ends up abandoned in the garage or shed somewhere, but with a little bit of paint and some ingenuity, you can give it a new home proudly on display thanks to farmhouse decor. The rungs of the ladder work great as a towel rack and are great for storing anything that can hang from a hook, like pots, pans, and even things like barbeque utensils. Depending on the condition of the ladder it might not even need a fresh coat of paint, but definitely give it a good cleaning before putting it to use.

2. Easy to Carry Tool Farmhouse Style Tray Planter

Easy to Carry Tool Tray Planter

Those old flat tool trays can be good for more than just carrying around your hammers and screwdrivers. After a fresh coat of paint or stain, you’ll be able to use the tool tray as a display holder anywhere around the house, even the dining room. It makes a great outdoor table centerpiece if you put some potted plants inside, but it can also be used as an organizer in the bathroom on your toilet tank or a table caddy in your kitchen for holding condiments or glasses. The possibilities for this project are near limitless.

3. Repurposed Outdoor Fireplace Mantle

Repurposed Outdoor Fireplace Mantle

While we usually think things like fencing, window panes, and shutters are only for the outside of a home, combining these elements in a unique way can lead to a lot of great indoor accent pieces. The entire farmhouse style comes from this idea of repurposing, and nothing drives that point home as much as this project. Using wood fencing materials to frame the fire pit along with window panes and shutters to draw the eye to the mantle shelf, this unique fireplace mantle can easily become the star of any den of living room or dining room area with some creativity and appropriate accenting.

4. Farmhouse Style Hanging Potted Planter Door Wreath

Hanging Potted Planter Door Wreath

Wreaths are always a nice focal point for the front door of a home, but why do a traditional rustic wreath using branches and reeds when you can add a bit of color instead. With this project, you’ll be able to make a unique wreath that will be the talk of the neighborhood. The best part is you don’t even have to change the wreath each season. Just replace the flowers with whatever colors and types fit the season, or just fill them with other farmhouse decor ideas depending on your preference.

5. Metallic Painted Jumbo Storage Jars

Metallic Painted Jumbo Storage Jars

If you are a pet owner or pretzel lover, odds are you’ve picked up one of those big plastic barrels of food or snacks with the screw-on caps. Don’t let those barrels go to waste since they offer some great storage potential despite their lackluster appearance. With a little bit of metallic paint and some creativity, you can transform the bulky clear barrels into something stylish, almost mimicking the farmhouse style of those Barnhouse steel milk jugs you tend to see out on the farm. All you need is a bit of metallic paint and you’re good to go for this quick and easy DIY project. This could look perfect in a dining room too!

6. Personalized Place Marker and Napkin Ring

Sometimes an event calls for a more elegant flair, something that normally doesn’t mesh well with the cozy laid back style of rustic farmhouse decor. With this project, you can add a little bit of elegance to your place setting, as well as give your guests a little personalized token to leave home with. All you’ll need are some wood disks, a bit of leather, some button clasps and some paint or a wood-burning kit to do the personalizing. You can also use a lettering stencil or freehand the names, whatever you’re more comfortable with.

7. Old Fashioned Farmhouse Style Indoor Display Pedestals

Old Fashioned Indoor Display Pedestals

Sometimes adding a bit of height to your countertop displays can just make a whole look come together. These countertop pedestals can help add that extra depth to your decor while adding their own elements to the rustic design of the room. Aside from something to use for the pedestal, you’ll need a bit of paint to match the color of the living room or color scheme you’re shooting for, as well as a bit of sandpaper to give it that worn and weathered charm. Lastly, you might want a small block of wood to place on top just to tie everything together. Also keep in mind where you want to place the pedestal when finding what to use as your base, as these can vary in weight. Picking something too heavy for a shelf pedestal could damage the shelf while picking something too lightweight for the floor could easily get knocked over.

This project helps completely transform them into a beautiful rustic planter with the help of a little paint and a wooden wall mount. These are a great way to add a bit of life to almost any living room, and they are quick and easy to make as well. For a slightly quainter touch, you can use old glass milk bottles instead of mason jars as well for a similar effect.

With a little bit of wood, nails and some stain, you can make a small rack for holding some of your more commonly used books, be it reference manuals in your office or your favorite recipe books in the kitchen.

13. 5-gallon Vase With Crate Frame

5-gallon Vase With Crate Frame

This project can look really nice if done properly, but it takes either a little bit of DIY know-how or access to a small crate to make work. By removing the housing panels on a wooden crate and adding a 5-gallon water cooler jug, you can make yourself a nice large scale vase for bigger greenery like reeds and stalks or full branches of blooming flowers. If you cant get your hands on an old crate you might have to build one from scratch, so you’ll need access to some wood, nails and a reference for how to build a crate.

Not only do these jars look fantastic, the customizable nature means you don’t need to make a new jar every time you change around your stock and what’s in them.

17. Making Old Furniture Good as New

Making Old Furniture Good as New

A fresh coat of paint can liven up even the most worn and weathered pieces of furnishings. If you have an old piece of furniture that doesn’t quite fit the decor of your home, simply changing up its look might be all you need to be able to repurpose it somewhere, rather than spending hundreds of dollars on a new set. If you want it to fit a more worn and weathered barnyard feel, you can also wear down some of the paint with a bit of sandpaper or use an aged or oxidized brass stain on the metal portions to give it the look you want.

18. The Homemade Garden and Farmhouse Style Tray

With a little bit of creativity, you can use a little twine and a base to make your own little indoor garden of veggies that will look just as lively all year round.

Live plants can add a nice touch of color and life to any home, but sometimes just using a traditional small pot makes them come off as generic and out of place. Luckily there’s a way to make these banal little pots stand out and make the whole display look more appealing. Using a little bit of sandpaper to make the pot look more worn, as well as using a bit of twine, you can transform your borning standard pots into something unique and rustic.

Repurposing a wooden step stool as a small display shelf can be a great way to add a little bit of height to any farmhouse decor ideas.

It’s also extremely portable and has a pretty small footprint also, so it can help add a little depth to almost any living room. Feel free to get creative with the paint as well, using either a stencil or painter’s tape to create a pattern to make it feel less like a step stool and more like a display. With the right paint job you can even make it work as a free-standing farmhouse decor.

If you already have wooden frames for decorative pieces of artwork around the house, you can quickly convert them all to a more farmhouse style in about an hour or two depending on how many you have. You can even embellish the frames with other odds and ends like pinecones and other rustic staples if you really want it to be the focal point of the living room. If you have metallic frames, feel free to experiment with some metal treatment paints to give your frames a more weathered look.

23. Farmhouse Style Worn Wood Chair and Ottoman Set

Worn Wood Chair and Ottoman Set

When it comes to farmhouse style, sometimes one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. If you have an old wooden chair or ottoman set, or go salvage hunting and snag one from a thrift store or off someone’s lawn for pickup, you can transform it into something quaint and homey with the right materials and a little hard work. You might need to cut yourself some new fabric to cover any old or torn seating as well. While not the most comfortable, if you’re using it more for looks than utility, covering the seat or top of the ottoman with burlap could also give it a nice touch. This project is a bit more involved, requiring some tools and a little more knowhow, but once you’re done you’ll have a nice set of furniture perfect for your lounge room or den.

24. Wooden Planked Wall Mounted Plaque

Wooden Planked Wall Mounted Plaque

Finding the right worded wall display can be a challenge, especially with so many options to choose from. Finding something that fits your home as well as a phrase that fits your personality can seem almost impossible sometimes, and you can only put so many ‘Live, Laugh, Love’ decorations about without things getting redundant. Thankfully, with a few planks of wood, some stain, and some paint and letter stencils, you can make your own custom display and write something truly from the heart to make all your guests feel at home.

25. From The Work Bench to The Coffee Table

From The Work Bench to The Coffee Table

This project might require a little more DIY know-how as well as some searching for materials since you probably won’t have what you’re looking for just lying around the house. You can use any rectangular piece of metal, be it an extra piece of wide shelving or from the top of an old work bench, to act as the tabletop for a new coffee table. You can even treat the metal to get a different look, or simply just paint over it if you’re looking for a less metallic color for your den area. Either way, once you have a sizable tabletop material, the rest should be easy.

26. Obviously Awesome Olive Branch DIY Wreath

Perhaps you’re looking for a wreath as an interesting accent to some of your already existing decor, and not desiring one to simply hang on your front door.

DIY farmhouse style decoration doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to make your decor item from scratch. Sometimes it means that you re-purpose a different item that you already own in a creative way. These clever homeowners took a vintage door and hung it above their bed. If you have a gorgeous vintage door that feels too lovely to hide away in a cabinet, draw inspiration from this idea.

28. Breathe New Life into an Old Frame

A Layering of Elegance and Rustic

You wouldn’t believe how quickly and simply an old frame becomes a rustic, beautiful chalkboard. You can easily purchase chalkboard paint at the hardware store, which, when painted over glass, creates a chalkboard finish. As for the actual frame, spray paint it whatever color you wish. We love what these homeowners did with the gold hue. These homeowners chose not to use their DIY project as an actual chalkboard, but rather as a backdrop for a lovely cranberry wreath, which can also be easily assembled with pieces from the craft store.

Breathe some new life into old canvases or wooden palettes by spray painting meaningful words or sayings on them. You can use a stencil if you’re not particularly artistically inclined.

You might be stunned by the fabulous decor items that you end up with for barely any investment beyond the cost of the paint.

34. A Simple Sign

Paint Custom signs for Your Kitchen

Not every DIY farmhouse decor has to be complicated. These homeowners gave their kitchen a gorgeous touch of farmhouse style by creating a very simple sign to hang high in their kitchen. To replicate it, start with a long, banner-shaped piece of thick stock board or wood. Print off your letters on your home printer in the largest font possible. Using an X-Acto blade, turn the letters into stencils. After arranging them how you want them and taping them into place, simply use black paint to fill them in. After your project has dried, it will look lovely hanging in any living room of your house.

35. Fake Your Way To A Box Of Flowers

Create Adorable Paint Stick Display Boxes

If you’ve seen wooden boxes of flowers and thought it was a creative farmhouse decor idea but looked to complicated to execute, worry not. This DIY farmhouse decor involves faking your way to the illusion of a box filled with real flowers. Start with a wooden box or crate of your choice, either spray painting it or leaving it as it is. Then, fill mason jars with faux flowers from the craft store. Place the mason jars into the box. The finished product will look like an antique box that’s overflowing with beautiful flowers.

Love Makes the World Go ‘Round

This is another DIY farmhouse style decoration that shows how endless the possibilities are when you have some old wood lying around. These creative homeowners stained a piece of wood and then stenciled in three of the letters of the word “love” in white paint. However, instead of just stenciling in an “o,” they created a heart out of pressed flowers and glued it where the “o” would normally go. The finished product is the kind of farmhouse decor that usually goes for a lot of money in high-end decor shops.

39. A Glowing Farmhouse Decor Idea

Light Up Your Life with Country Flair

This DIY farmhouse style decoration will literally add a glow to your living room. Instead of buying overpriced lantern sconces at a home goods store, these creative homeowners used some recovered wood and mason jars to create their own. First, they spray painted the wood their desired color. Then, they hand painted the upper rims of their mason jars. They attached hooks to the pieces of wood and a short length of chain to the jars. After hanging the jars on the pieces of wood, all that was needed was two candles to bring these beautiful wall sconces to life.

40. The Ultimate In Farmhouse Style: Barn Doors

The Dream of every Farmhouse Decor Enthusiast

If you’re looking for a farmhouse style idea that is less of a DIY farmhouse decor and more of a permanent installation in your home, then you might want a barn door. A barn door is a door that doesn’t open and close, but rather slides on tracks. It is the ultimate way to give your living room or whole home a very rustic, farmhouse style. It looks like a complicated install, but can actually be simpler than installing a standard door. You can find barn door kits at most big box home improvement stores.

41. From Ladder to Nightstand

Ladders are Fun, Functional Display Alternatives

If you have an old wooden ladder in your shed, don’t throw it away. Instead, take a cue from this farmhouse idea and turn it into an incredibly rustic and creative nightstand. If your ladder has been sitting in storage, give it a good cleaning and sand it down to remove any old stain or debris. Then, paint it with the color of your choice. Strategically lean it or pose it next to your bed. You can decorate it with books, plants or small decor items. It’s not only stunning, but serves as a completely functional nightstand with plenty of space.

42. A DIY Mirror Inspired by Nature

Reflect Your Beauty with a Driftwood-Adorned Mirror

One of the cornerstones of any DIY farmhouse decoration is incorporating elements of nature into your projects. This DIY decoration begins with a simple circular mirror, which can be purchased inexpensively at any craft store. Then, gather a basket of twigs and small branches from outside. Break them and arrange them around the mirror until you find a design you like. Then, simply use a hot glue gun to secure the twigs into place. You can spray paint the twigs beforehand for a more refined look or keep them as they are for a more earthy appearance.

43. Fake Your Way to a Stunning Shadowbox

A Hanging Vase Creates Instant Visual Impact

Shadowboxes can be difficult to assemble. Instead, create the illusion of one. Using an old frame, spray paint the actual frame the color of your choice. Paint the glass with either chalkboard or regular black paint. Then, take a mason jar and fill it with faux flowers from the craft store. Using a hot glue gun, adhere hooks to each side of the mouth of the jar. Then, use a thick ribbon of your choosing to hang the jar in the center of the frame. It looks like a shadowbox, but is actually just a clever DIY farmhouse decoration that’s surprisingly simple.

44. A Piece of Found Wood Becomes Chic Decor

Honor Your Home with a Hand-Painted DIY Farmhouse Décor

If you find a piece of wood with a flat side, you’re halfway there to a gorgeous DIY decoration. This farmhouse idea involves painting a piece of found wood a solid color and then stenciling a design or saying of your choice. Like so many of the DIY ideas on our list, it looks like an expensive decor item, but is actually totally simple and inexpensive to create. It’s yet another DIY farmhouse decoration that just requires a little time, patience and creativity.

46. A Ladder in the Bathroom? Why Not!

Create Interest by Replacing Drawers with Baskets

This decoration idea might be shocking to some. However, we think it’s a perfect farmhouse idea. These homeowners took an old ladder and cleaned it up with a glossy stain. Then, they leaned it against the wall in their bathroom. It serves as not only a functioning towel rack, but an accent piece that adds a rustic touch to their otherwise modern bathroom. This is a bold idea, but it’s perfect for homeowners who like to think outside the box while decorating with farmhouse inspiration in mind.

Not every DIY farmhouse decoration has to involve sanding wood or painting furniture. This simple little banner might not be a complicated DIY project, but the result is absolutely sweet and perfectly classic. Simply cut burlap fabric into triangles and write your desired letters on each triangle with white fabric paint. Then, use a hot glue gun to attach the triangles to a string of twine. You can also tie two large ribbons into bows and glue them on the outer edges as these clever homeowners chose to do.

48. A Simple Chalkboard

Hang a Chalkboard for Special Messages

We’ve already seen examples on this list where homeowners turned old frames into chalkboards. We truly believe it to be a decoration idea that is integral for any farmhouse inspired decor. These homeowners used a rustic and worn frame and appear to have left the actual frame untouched. However, they applied chalkboard paint to the glass. The finished product is a chalkboard where they can write memos and sweet messages. We love this simple and yet inspired idea.

49. Another Inspiring Idea Using Reclaimed Wood

DIY Entryway Organization Made From Old Sliding

Much like the chalkboard frames, we see a lot of reclaimed wood on this list because it truly is a cornerstone in farmhouse decorating. By incorporating this wood, these homeowners instantly gave this room a more rustic and classic atmosphere.

50. Create a Humorous Industrial Sign

Create a Humorous Industrial Sign

This is another example of a decoration idea that looks much more expensive than it actually is. These homeowners simply spray painted a piece of wood. Then, they purchased some small wooden letters from the craft store and painted them the color of their choosing. The final step was simply hot gluing the letters to the wood. We adore the “flush” message to be posted above a toilet. However, we would love to see this DIY idea used for other messages, such as “dream” above a bed. This is a DIY idea that offers limitless possibilities.

51. The Most Farmhouse Decor Idea We’ve Seen

A Chalkboard Door for Budding Artists

We’ve seen a lot of chalkboard paint used on different projects on this list. We’ve also seen barn doors used to really create a farmhouse feel. Hence, the chalkboard barn door might be the ultimate in farmhouse decor style. These homeowners simply used chalkboard paint on a door and then used a kit from a home improvement store to install it as a barn door. We’re utterly in love with the rustic and yet somewhat kitschy feel of this barn door. It would be absolutely wonderful in a kitchen or as the entrance to a den.

52. Picnic Tables in a Dining Room? Absolutely!

Picnic Tables in a Dining Room? Absolutely!

When we think of picnic tables, we typically think of outdoor and patio furniture. However, if you want a rustic farmhouse look in your kitchen or dining room, consider moving a picnic table indoors. To take an old picnic table and make it more appropriate for the indoors, give it a good washing down and sanding. Then, stain it and use a protective finish to preserve its shine and integrity. This is a great way to give a farmhouse feel to any dining room and is a great way to breathe new life into an old piece of outdoor furniture.

53. Replace Kitchen Drawers with Wooden Crates

Clever Crate Drawers for Storing Produce

If you want to give a farmhouse look to your kitchen drawers, then remove the drawers and replace them with wooden crates. You can either skip the tracks all together or install new ones to allow the crates to slide in and out of the cabinets easily. This is a bold decoration idea, but it’s truly a brilliant way to give new life to your kitchen cabinets.

54. Give a New Spin to an Old Chandelier

This Clean-Lined Chandelier is a Statement Piece

By shaping wire and metal into an orb, you can create a unique and farmhouse inspired covering for your chandelier. Not only is this unique chandelier covering pretty to look at when the light is off, but it creates truly unique light patterns on the walls when the chandelier is on. This is one of those DIY projects that is quaint, allows you to repurpose old materials and gives your house a rustic yet unique feel. You can create a similar look with twine by using starch to render the twine pliable.
