Farmhouse Friday: Farmhouse Kitchens

Every Friday, I like to share something farmhouse related . Sometimes I share farmhouse decor at local stores, but sometimes I share farmhouse rooms from Pinterest. This week I’d like to show you some farmhouse kitchens I’ve been crushing on.

I love the simple beauty of this kitchen. From the white cabinets to the neutral colors, this kitchen is warm, cozy and inviting. It has a lot of high end elements, but doesn’t appear fussy. And how pretty is that Roman shade?

This white marble kitchen is lovely! I really love those open shelves and that subway tile backsplash. That range hood is speaking to me, too!!

What about these two kitchens from DIY Decorator? 


I love a kitchen with a large island, interesting lighting and lots of natural light! The paneled backsplash adds a lot of warmth to the room, too.

Next week I will be sharing farmhouse fireplaces. Have a wonderful Friday!

Farmhouse Friday: Soda crates

I love that wooden soda crates are popular right now. They are so versatile and so neat looking, too. 

I have two of them that I have used in a number of ways:


There are still more ways to use them on Pinterest. I thought it might be fun to share them with you today.

I love everything about this picture. I love that crate, those white blooms, the watering can, and that demijohn!

Pottery Barn

How about this spring vignette from Life on Kaydeross Creek?

I’ve also seen them repurposed as stools, 

Prodigal Pieces

shelves,

shadow boxes,

Christmas Inspirations

 and spice racks.

Brohaha

See? I told you they were versatile! Keep your eyes peeled for my wood crate. You’ll see it again real soon.

How do you use your wood crate?

Farmhouse Friday: milk pitchers

I love decorating with milk pitchers. For many years, this farmhouse staple was used for serving milk to hungry families, not for decorating. I thought for this week’s farmhouse Friday I’d share a roundup of Milk pitcher decorating ideas.

This metal milk pitcher is being used to store kitchen utensils.

Is there anything prettier than simple blooms in a white pitcher?


                         <source>

Simple greenery looks amazing as well.

This pitcher with cotton stems is lovely as well.

In my own house, I have three IKEA pitchers corralling my kitchen utensils.


How do you use pitchers in your home?

Farmhouse Fridays: favorite farmhouse bedrooms

 

This week, instead of sharing five things I love or a roundup of farmhouse style merchandise, I’m going to kind of combine them. Today I’m sharing my favorite farmhouse style bedrooms, as seen in magazines and on Pinterest.

I love this shiplap headboard and the ticking stripe duvet.


              Cotton Stem Interiors 

This next room is so pretty. I love an iron bed, but I also really love the tray ceiling and light fixture.


                 Our Vintage Nest

There isn’t anything in this bedroom I don’t love, but there’s just something about that beam and those lace curtains.


                  Love Grows Wild
The old door and the ceiling beams got me. Love this pretty room!


          Dreamy White Lifestyle
I like the colors in this room, but those sconces just make the room.

Farmhouse Fridays: a DIY distressed coat rack


I’ve wanted a little extra storage in the hall bathroom for awhile now.

I loved those antiqued coat racks but they are so expensive. I decided to go the DIY route.


I had this awesome board with this fabulous weathering already.


Then I bought these three distressed hooks from Hobby Lobby for $3 each.

I was loving the weathering but it didn’t look so great in our bathroom. When I was chalk painting my jars last week, I decided to try it out.


I touched the brush to the board and I was done.


And then I let it dry for a few days before attaching the hooks.


I realize it looks lost on that wall, but it’s the perfect size when it’s filled.


It would be perfect in the kitchen as well for hanging aprons.


What farmhouse project have you created lately?
