Finding old vintage mirrors to use can be time-consuming and tricky, so make this one instead. Super easy rustic furniture tutorial shows you exactly how to make this awesome mirror.
6. Laundry Room Farmhouse Light
I love farmhouse decor, but the closest I can get to a farmhouse is to used rustic decorative elements in my city apartment. I saw this DIY farmhouse light using chicken wire on Pinterest and I would be lying if I told you that I’m not completely obsessed with it. Especially since I’ve seen versions on the internet for way more than I spent on this. I had a few requirements for the laundry room light. I wanted it to be unique, include wood tones, and look farmhouse vintage. I think it’s perfect! Originally, we had a cheap-o $10 Ikea light in there. It worked perfect, but I always had the intention of switching it out later. With this light, I was able to reuse most of it, and just removed the previous plastic shade.
7. DIY Plug In Sconce From Pendant Lights
I had been wanting some bedside sconces ever since I moved to the countryside, but I wasn’t sure how to do it since I couldn’t hardwire them to the wall. My next option was to use some type of plug-in lights. Being the indecisive person that I am I kept putting it off because I couldn’t decide on what I liked. I have been going back and forth for months on different options and probably still would be if I had not seen this DIY that enabled me to make a decision and get it done! So what did I do? I went to Habitat For Humanity and boy did I score! I got these two pendant lights for $1 each! I followed the tutorial and it was a breeze, they look amazing!
8. Custom Vintage Farmhouse Style Sign
Before Christmas, I won a sign of my choice on a giveaway over at Erskin House bed and breakfast in Shulemberg, Texas (So fun, right?!) Having a custom-made sign was one of the choices. I asked the sign maker if he could make us a sign for our home, which we call our “Little Farmstead.” I also asked if she could include the year that we moved in when it was “established.” Since we moved here two years ago, I have pictured a sign, just like this, above the coat closet in our entryway. I love the distressed detail Pathe sign maker gave the sign. It truly looks like a vintage, time-worn sign.

9. DIY Industrial Farmhouse Bathroom Sign
I think my husband’s biggest pet peeve is when one of the kids don’t flush the toilet. And when I say one of the kids I may or may not be guilty of that too. I mean in all fairness generally, it’s because I can’t even go to the restroom without having to jump up and run somewhere, so basically what I’m saying is I have a legit reason for occasionally forgetting to flush. Given our problem it only made sense to make a sign to remind us all how to fix it. The style I am going for is Industrial Farmhouse – and how I was planning to achieve this look. This sign was something I saw just the other day so it wasn’t in the original plans, but it filled a gap I had just perfectly!
10. French Farmhouse Bath Decor
This rustic DIY French farmhouse toiletry tray is so lovely. You can start with any wooden tray and follow the whitewash tutorial in the link. I like to place vintage apothecary glass jars on these trays and fill them with cotton buds and such, just stunning!
11. Farmhouse Reading Nook
Old houses are so charming but their floorplans can be a bit strange. We have been in this house for two years. In that two years, I have remodeled our kitchen twice, painted a lot of walls and ignored some spaces too. One of the weirdest things about this house was that for the square footage the “dining room” was sized for about two people. But off the dining room is technically this “family room”, which is also like the world’s smallest family room, so I combined both these spaces into a very long dining room. We have a long table, so this works, but the space was still a bit awkward. The wall opposite the kitchen was just weird and empty so I added my new little reading nook. I just arranged an antique door with my favorite wicker chair, added a plant stand and reading lamp, so adorable. I love spending my evenings here.
12. Pallet Coffee Cup Holder
I don’t know about you, but I collect some really cool coffee mugs and got tired of hiding them on a cabinet shelf! I’ve got all my favorite cups hanging on my new coffee cup holder now and I love it! Since I love coffee so much, I’ve developed a coffee mug addiction and trying to find my favs is a pain in the rear, so this solved that problem! It always feels like there isn’t sufficient storage within your cabinets for everything you might have. Fortunately, you will save quite a bit of space with this coffee cup holder! Makes me so happy!
13. DIY Apple Wreath
Fall has officially moved into our home and I can’t wait to decorate! I’ve been doing so much around the house. Our fall home tour for the Jr. League is coming up soon, so I have so much to do to be ready! Since we’ve built shelves, it’s one of my very favorite places to decorate and change things up, with a wreath of some sort. Apples are one of my very favorite things to decorate with for fall, so when it came to start bringing in those natural elements, I decided to make my own DIY apple wreath.
14. Farmhouse Style Staircase Gallery Wall
Everything in our home it’s bound to not look the same for any long period of time. I have slowly made some changes to this gallery wall over the past couple of months so I wanted to update my look. I understand that our houses are always in progress, always changing, and most of the time always improving. Your home is better designed when done over time & decorated with items with meaning that you love. Here is a farmhouse style gallery wall that really exemplifies eclectic movement and change.
15. Be Grateful Pallet Wall Art
Since the colors were in the scheme of my current living room pallet I have left it up all year round. I decided to tackle a project and give it a little Thanksgiving spin with the words “Be Grateful.” I never want to be limited by the holiday decor so I made it without any leaves or autumn colors. This project is really easy and cost less than $10!
