When on the hunt for farmhouse decor, I am doing my best to curb impulse spending. I don’t want to regret a purchase. I also have a budget and I want to buy only what I will truly love for a long time. It helps to know that there’s no rush to make a decision either. Renovating a house has a very different timeline than building one so I can afford to be discerning. Even when I buy antiques or second-hand items, I will only purchase high-quality pieces that have timeless appeal.
My latest farmhouse decor finds not only fit my simple and classic decorating style but they are also one of a kind finds and true steals. My kind of trifecta!
Here are some of the things we’ve added for that classic farmhouse style without the kitsch.
Farmhouse Decor Reveal
I found this antique mirror with a floral frame at a local antique and secondhand shop, The House Market, and hung it in our master bedroom. When you have a mirror with a lot of detail on the frame, it makes a big statement on its own. There’s no need to add anything around it or near it. People always say how much they love it. I think one of the reasons why is because there’s nothing else on this shiplap wall to compete for visual attention. But also, it’s simply beautiful, and it was only $50!
Rustic Vintage Watering Can
I wouldn’t put rustic touches everywhere in our house, but I love this beat up, vintage watering can. I picked it up from a vendor at the Country Living Fair in Columbus last summer. Currently, it’s filled it with some fresh Russian Sage from my herb garden, which smells so heavenly. Walking past it every day is a reminder to slow down and enjoy nature’s simple pleasures.
Curb Grab Antique Rocking Chair
Last fall, Matt and I saw this antique rocking chair sitting out on trash day. I’m not ashamed to say we hit the brakes and did a curb grab. Their trash, our treasure. I can’t believe someone would just toss this antique rocker! With just a little cleanup, I was able to restore the glow of the wood and it looks great in the corner of our bedroom. Snatching a few minutes of reading time here on a rainy day is bliss.
Signed Landscape Painting
I found this nature landscape painting at a little old lady’s moving sale last summer and snatched it up fast for $5. These paintings are classic farmhouse elements. Right now they’re actually trending on Magnolia in Joanna’s new collection for a lot more money. Go figure, right?
Little Ironstone Pitcher
I purchased this little ironstone pitcher because I loved its graceful, curvy lines and classic white finish. This is a piece that will never go out of style and it’s useful. It can be used to hold fresh or dried flowers or to pour fresh cream in the kitchen. Win, win.
