Seven great elements of Farmhouse Style
Paint, make, or find these items to give your home an instant style upgrade.
2 – Mason Jars
Use for more than just canning jams. Paint with Chalk Paint® in any color you like for flower or candle holders.
3 – Anything Galvanized
Buckets to baskets to watering cans, these add a touch of industrial to the farmhouse style.
4 – Pie
Apple, strawberry rhubarb, blueberry…made in a ceramic or Pyrex pie plate, and served on vintage china with an old pie server. Does it get any better than that?
5 – Wooden Floors
White washed by time, or paint, there’s very little carpet in a farmhouse, save for a few area rugs. See our tutorial on whitewashing floors here.
6 – Simple, Heirloom Pottery
Beautiful timeless pottery, like our collection of Farmhouse Pottery, is a staple of this style. It serves many uses and stands the test of time. A must for any country kitchen.
7 - Barn Doors
Whether they’re leading into a barn, or separating two rooms, barn doors are a great architectural detail that add style and texture to any room. Grab a small one for a headboard, or go all out like the photo above and put them on sliding tracks.
