Creating Vintage Farmhouse Style

I have a confession…I have several imaginary homes that I decorate in different styles! I have an imaginary cabin in the mountains, a cottage at the beach, a country home in Provence and an old farmhouse! Please tell me that you do that, too! lol This week I had a lot of fun at The Scoop finding ways to decorate my farmhouse, so I thought I would share them with you!  

0be275661c759cd381a68fe777a3029c I love all of the fabulous vintage pieces in Beaux R’eves Farmhouse Dish Cupboard!

4a438e5a7f5411bfe8b3bacc6ff9ce57 Mimi’s Vintage Charm shared her Antoinette Dining Room Chairs and her wonderful farmhouse table!

51d0ce63daee04336bf6905bcc90b01a I know I will be searching the thrift stores for a candidate to make my own Vintage Child’s Chair to re-do like Anderson & Grant!

175c2fe0672eb25dfb5fe445693ad48a And another lovely share from Beaux R’eves…her  Summery Guest Room! Hmm…I’m afraid that I would never leave!

553fe96b926b539fbfdac2a020697adf Now I am on the hunt for a “savour”…a Greek basil tree like Simply Suzanne’s found in her local nursery! It’s so pretty and she says it smells heavenly…and you can cook with it, too!

5488b583385f55f5d0e3b58a20bb49a8How’s this for repurposing? One More Time Events created a Rustic Vintage Window Coffee Table with found objects! Love it!

dfcb3422cebb3a47ad44b1cb9cd5c672 CD’s Country Living gave new life to a wonderful old family piece with lots of memories attached with her Antique Washstand Dresser!

Ozzie Our CEO Miss Ozzie reminds me to show you that you don’t have to spend a fortune to create that farmhouse look!

With some bargain shopping and thrift store finds, you can create farmhouse style on a budget! I show you how I did it here.

  1. Yes, I have other "homes" in my mind, too. A creative person is just restless like that I think...we can never be happy with just one look. I have a little bit of all of them mixed together in my real home, and at times, I feel like it's disjointed...but, it's home, and I love it. I really enjoyed the post today.

  2. Yes, I also dream & think about my farm house up on the hill. It is an actual house that for some reason I have this connection to. I did take a tour when it was on sale and of course I fell in love with it - so I am often changing things around.
    Love all your ideas for the perfect vintage farmhouse style, so if I win the Lottery - I'm buying my dream LOL
    Have a great weekend.

  3. This makes me wish I still had my farm house where my girls grew up and where it was smack in the middle of the country side. I'd be decorating with such warm, White and lovely things as I'd be so inspired with your gorgeous features!
    Enjoy your weekend.

  4. I think many of us day dream about "another home". Fun to see your farm house touches, Debbie.

  5. Oh the dream.... yes I think we all do :)
    Luv the inspiration.

  6. You are so sweet to include my headboard bench ....thank you so much! Hugs, Penny

  7. Great little way of showcasing others' posts, Debbie. And yes, I do have a few other homes (or at least a folly or two), in my mind - a beach cottage, a romantically rustic guest cottage, and a potting shed - to name just a few. ;)

  8. Debbie,
    Ah~h~h. . .one can dream now, can't we dear friend???
    I adore all the amazing photos from your blog friends homes!!!
    C'est magnifique!
    Miss Ozzie is adorable as ever!!!
    Thank you for the tip on where to find local Farmhouse accessories!!!

  9. Thanks for featuring my guest room and dish cupboard Debbie. I have such fun with all of my vintage Farmhouse finds! A great post with lots of ideas.

  10. You did a good job rounding out the look with these beautiful blogs. Going to visit.

  11. Debbie,
    Just back from a trip home to see my mom in Alabama, and I now have several more dream homes captured in photos. Love your collage of farmhouse inspiration...
