Farmhouse Style
What Is Farmhouse Style?
Farmhouse decorating is a style that is warm, cozy, relaxing, and full of charm and character while being organized around a central notion of practicality.
Farmhouses should look like they've evolved over time: Matchy-matchy is a no-no. Your furniture should not look like it could have all been bought at the same store. 
Also, a home decorated in this style should consist of hand-me-downs and flea market finds combined with newer pieces. For instance, an old harvest table and Shaker cabinets combine beautifully with stainless steel appliances and modern light fixtures in a farmhouse kitchen.
Distress Furniture Like a Pro
When giving an old piece of furniture a fresh coat of Chalk Paint™, it’s fitting to distress it a bit, so the new paint feels natural on the vintage or antique piece. 
Farmhouse Decorating Ideas
Here are some elements of décor and decorating ideas that will help you achieve a great farmhouse style:
  • Barn wood and shiplap
  • Butcherblocks and apron sinks
  • Grain stripes and throw rugs
  • Vintage furniture and distressed painted finishes
  • Farm animal art
  • Wicker, rattan and natural weathered woods
Don't forget to add a countertop Herb Garden.
Put together a rustic herb garden in distressed terra cotta pots with Chalk Paint™ on your countertop for a lively — and delicious— addition to the kitchen.
Try adding a Farmhouse Door Headboard like below.
Crafting your own headboard is easier than you may think. With the help of a rustic door, some Chalk Paint™ and a few other materials, you can give your bedroom a mega-makeover in an afternoon.
