I love the farmhouse style in home decor, the idea for this post started when I found this old baking tray as I was de- cluttering. My hubby had put it in the junk pile as it was looking old and worn out. I squealed with delight when I saw it. What was junk to him was joy to me.
Now why I screamed for joy was because nothing screams farmhouse more that this kind of galvanised tin stuff. It was also the right size that I was looking for. I thought it had great potential. So let’s go from junk to joy with these farmhouse DIY ideas.
A floral farmhouse style Centrepiece:
I filled the tray with faux greens and flowers and it looked so good. It’s amazing what a few flowers and leaves can do. This can make any corner of the house look good.
A DIY rustic sign board:
For this I took a 12inch x 12inch canvas board, mixed some acrylic white and black paint to make a lovely grey and painted it. It does not have to be neat. In fact we are looking for that shabby chic look in this case.
I further distressed it with the pallet knife, and marked out lines 3 inch apart and used a black pencil to draw the line when the paint was dry.
It turned out so lovely just the way I wanted it. For the lettering I used cord, you could use different words that matter to you like BLESSED or THANKFUL but I went for HOME.
I braided the cord this way and formed the letter “home” and stuck it with glue. The candle too I wrapped with the same cord and the floral painting also blends in well into the setup. You could place them all together like I did or individually too.
