So, I’ve been scouring Pinterest lately as I recently acquired a buffet and hutch I plan to redo. I’ve been looking for one like this for a very long time. It’s like the one my mom has had for the past forty years, only this one is smaller and I’m in love with the piece. I’m not going to show it to you just yet. But I cannot wait to see how it turns out.

Aside from that though, we also acquired a new leather recliner. At first it didn’t quite fit into our space but not I’m using it a focal point for redoing a few things around here, mainly with farmhouse style decor, including my kitchen. Here are a few DIY Farmhouse Crazy Ideas I’ve gotten that I just may try!

Retro country kitchen spruce up. I love this idea. I’m going to be tackling it this weekend on my own stove and will let you guys know how it turns out. Product used is spray can you can purchase from Walmart for less than six bucks, plus a handle to add to the bottom which I think is adorable being the bottom of the stove has no real handle.

This is another idea we want to do to remove the cluttered look we have with our TV placed upon our fireplace. First off I’m going to mount our TV when I get around to it. This idea comes from Decorating Your Small Space and I can’t wait to create a picture frame in rustic white wood to add some farmhouse flare.

Looking on Craig’s list I always find cheap old doors to re-purpose and this idea from DIY Craft Decor is one of the best I’ve seen. Turning an old door into a welcoming photo frame/coat rack that visitors can feast their eyes upon when they enter your home.

You know I’m on the hunt for a country kitchen island. This one from Hometalk showcases how to take an old dresser or baby change table, add some paint, some hooks, a wooden top and now I’ve got some red to go with my vintage blue stove for a farmhouse retro feel.

If you are like me there is absolutely nothing I hate more than a bedroom full of clutter. My room right now is a disaster and the wall above my bed and empty space. I don’t have a traditional frame, though I’m always keeping my eyes peeled. I never would have thought of this idea from Better Homes and Gardens, to take pieces of wallpaper wrapped around cork board or bristle to create fancy wall art that can change the theme of your room in the blink of an eye!

I’m a huge fan of Ikea. Not having it everywhere in my home, but bits and pieces to tie things together. I want rustic, country, farmhouse flare and this screams all three with this amazing Ikea Hack which we will be doing this month. I’ll write about and show you how it turns out. I can’t wait to see it finished and with matching side tables that cost me 8 bucks each to buy. I’m sure we will get compliments on the set.

So no matter what DIY project you are looking for. You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars. You can turn trash into treasure. Take something old and make it new again. The best part is that every piece you create says a little bit about you and is touched with a flare of  your own personality.

Happy Designing!
