Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by today! Since y’all seem to love my first post “5 Best DIYs to get the Fixer Upper Look“, I decided to come up with 5 Best DIYs to get the Fixer Upper Look – Part Two!
You know I LOVE farmhouse decor, so theoretically this series could go on forever 😉
While there are plenty of stores that are filled to the brim with farmhouse decor and fixer upper knockoffs, you can expect to spend a decent amount of money.
And if you would rather buy all of your decor, this post probably isn’t for you 🙂
I love DIYing a large portion of my in-home decor! Not only do I save money, but I can also create something that fits into the farmhouse decor idea (whites, neutrals, metals, rustic, etc) but can also be unique, something you won’t necessarily see at the store.
So, do you want to DIY some farmhouse decor, too??
So, I can’t believe I didn’t have shiplap in my first post!! If you would have asked what shiplap was before Fixer Upper, I would definitely given a deer in headlights look.
Shiplap is all the rage these days, and for good reason! It adds so much rustic charm to any room and is relatively inexpensive.
There are so so many tutorials, projects, and ideas on Pinterest to motivate you. I pin a lot of them on my Fixer Upper / Farmhouse Style Pinterest board, so check it out for even more inspiration!
Who doesn’t love a good chalkboard?? I’ve seen so so many creative DIY chalkboards on Pinterest, it was hard to choose just a few.
Use the chalkboard for pretty word art to display your favorite quote, write up some family rules to keep those kiddos in line or use one to plan your weekly meal schedule. Whatever you choose to do, chalkboards add such lovely charm AND can be functional in your home.
I LOVE open shelving. It’s the perfect place to display fun and charming farmhouse pieces, your grandma’s old china or some fun dishes of your own.
My favorite part: you can style them however you want! There’s no right or wrong way to style shelves.
DIY Farmhouse Shelves by ME!
Girl, you NEED a farmhouse mirror. They look perfect in a bathroom, on those open farmhouse shelves or hanging on the wall.
These talented ladies created the most beautiful farmhouse mirrors I know you’re going to love.
If you don’t want a mirror, sub out the actual mirror glass and make it a picture frame, a frame for word art or simply a rustic open frame to hang in a gallery wall.
Ok, so maybe you’re saying, “Sarah, those are pretty intense DIYs. I want something that I can make in under an hour”. I got your back.
The farmhouse wreath. Probably the easiest farmhouse DIY but brings just as much rustic charm as a more in-depth project.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends! If you’re looking for even more farmhouse-inspired DIYs (aren’t we all) check out a few things I’ve been working on recently:
Wishing you a joyful day!
