In honor of spring finally arriving (in Pennsylvania, anyway), I’ve gathered my top 5 DIY projects to add farmhouse style decor to the house. Have y’all gotten some good spring weather yet? We are in our first few weeks of total springtime fantasticness, and it’s been just amazing. We’ve gotten gardening, spring cleaning, decorating, and all sorts of playing outside with no jackets on in the sunshine and warm breezes underway. Glorious!
Farmhouse Project No.1: DIY Coffee Table Using a Salvaged Shutter
This is probably one of my easiest and most favorite projects we’ve done, and I love how it turned out. The hairpin legs really contrast the rustic shutter we got at a salvage shop locally, and it’s just adorable. You can also make one of these with a shutter, table top, door, window… the possibilities are truly endless. There is nothing like salvaging something so architecturally beautiful!
Farmhouse Project No.2: Easy Rustic Blanket Ladder DIY
If you’ve got pallets laying around, you’ve got to make this adorable pallet blanket ladder! You all know darn well, you use blankets even in the spring and summer time because you’ve either got the windows open in the evenings for a good breeze, or the air conditioner is slingin’ some cool air.

Farmhouse Project No.3: Rustic Kitchen Transformation Progress
This is probably one of my favorite transformation projects! This shelf adds so much character to the window (which was bare bones), and the pendant light is perfection – especially because it took only 5 minutes! You can add so much character to a window by simply adding a shelf, cute curtains, and accessories!
Farmhouse Project No.4: How to Make A Burlap Wreath
Listen here… your door cannot be naked, so whip this up real quick. This adorable wreath only took me a couple minutes, and it looks amazing on the screen to welcome folks onto the farmhouse porch. A burlap wreath can be customized in a million different ways, so make it your own!
Farmhouse Project No.5: Faux Salvaged Wood Farm Signs
Ok, so I haven’t written this post yet, but I am working on 2 new signs for the doors here, and I wanted to give y’all a sneak peek of the two I already have hanging up! I made these signs to look like either rustic wood I found laying in a pile of dirt, or hanging on a roadside stand. Aren’t they adorable!? I’m going to do a video tutorial and show you how to get the layers of character and depth with the new wood, so make sure you are hanging out on my Facebook page for that video, and subscribe to the newsletter (right at the top!) so you can be the first to know when that tutorial post is up.
