If you are looking for some new ideas in farmhouse decor, you are in the right place! I have looked high and low to find some fresh, new farmhouse decorating ideas (we hope they are anyway!) to inspire your next big room makeover. Bring the farm home with these fun decor finds! Some are to buy, while others to inspire your creativity and farmhouse style. Let’s take a look!
I am obsessed with cows- they are just too sweet. Oddly, I don’t think we have any cows worked into our farmhouse decor. I guess living in the country gives me my fix!
I can totally picture this cow at the top of a set of stairs, welcoming you to the next level of your home. Isn’t she fabulous?! If you have a farmhouse, you should probably have a cow… (Note to self.) While I LOVE this black and white cow, my absolute favorite cow is in color. Isn’t he great?? Instagram
Every farmhouse needs a big, awesome farmhouse sign! I love these signs because 1) they can be a DIY project, 2) you can customize them with anything you like, and 3) they are available is so many sizes you are sure to find one that fits your space perfectly.
I am usually a DIY’er, but every once in a while you see something you can’t resist…and know you can’t DIY it as fabulously as it is storebought. That’s the case with my new farmhouse sign:
I just LOVE IT! I found mine at a little shop in Pentwater, Michigan (The Glove Apparel) while shopping with my mom, and I probably wouldn’t have bought it without her encouragement, but I am so glad I did! Even my ice cream loving hubby likes it, and he is not keen on pricey signs, lol!
I have an antique scale that is nowhere near as awesome as this reproduction scale sitting on my open shelves. This one is MUCH better! Do you know why? Because it’s not a scale. It’s a clock! How perfect is that? These old scales are used as farmhouse decor, rather than their intended purpose, 99% of the time, so you may as well have one that is functional decor. I love this! I also love that it can be decorated seasonally, which is something I hadn’t thought of! I may need to bring mine down off the shelf periodically.
Farmhouse kitchens are in high demand, and once you’ve washed dishes in a huge single bowl farmhouse sink (<– *love* this one!!) you will understand why big sinks are all the rage. No more trying to wash big pans in those tiny double bowl sinks. Such a pain! This farmhouse sink takes style to the next level with its embossed apron front. How beautiful!
I love this idea! Wood shutters are not as easy to come by as they once were, so if you happen upon some be sure to snag them! There are so many things you can do with them, one of my favorites being this great farmhouse shelf. Since shutters are typically narrow, this could work out well on a hard to decorate narrow wall. If DIY is not your thing, or you love this and just can’t find the perfect shutter (me!!) you can purchase this almost identical shutter shelf.
This awesome “Farm Fresh” sign is 39 inches long, so it is huge! This would look great above windows or a door. Since it is metal you could even hang it outside. Too cute on the side of a shed! Update: This sign is now sold out, but no worries! Here is an almost identical version, except it’s 42″ long. Even better!Decor Steals
Even if you have limited carpentry skills, you can totally build this DIY farmhouse console table! Your local lumber store will cut all of the wood for you if you ask realllyyyy nicely and tell them you’re a new DIY’er, and you can YouTube how to make pocket holes without a kreg jig. It is as easy as it looks! Orrrrrr…you could save yourself the hassle and have this super great console table in just a few days… Just sayin’.
Bees are to hives, as ________ are to farmhouses. Do you remember those questions from school, lol? The answer, in this case, is “Wooden Trays!” I love trays and we have them all over the house: under the coffee pot, in the bathroom, in the living room, on bedside tables…pretty much wherever anything can be set down, we have a tray for it. I am particularly fond of the trays I have in my living rooms that allow me to set my coffee next to me on the sofa so I can sip while I work without worrying about it tipping over on the cushions. These trays come in a set of three and are Farmhouse Fabulous! I love the raised metal handles.
This is such a great idea for your
Spring Summer Fall Winter YEAR ROUND porch! Naturally, given the photo, you think Spring or Summer, but galvanized buckets can be used all year for seasonal decor. These would be super cute with Indian corn and gourds in the fall, and also with evergreen branches, pine cones and shatter-proof ornaments in the winter. I picked up six (or maybe 8…) vintage galvanized maple syrup buckets when we were in Florida. They are going to line our dock with plants this summer! Since garage sale season is upon us, vintage galvanized buckets should be pretty easy to come by. If you like the look of maple sap buckets, but can’t find them used, they are available online.
This vintage inspired metal and wood wall pocket is a great way to add a touch of farmhouse decor to any kitchen, mudroom, entryway…so many possibilities. You could use it for mail, keys, dried flowers or anything else you can think of. We were in Florida last year and I found this awesome Mud Pie dog food scoop. I mounted it to the wall and use it to hold tennis balls for our dog! (Below.) Update: Things sell out FAST at Antique Farmhouse, and the wall pocket is no exception. No worries, I found another great rustic wall pocket to share!

Don’t you love this scoop with dog tail handle-turned-leash holder? I love that everything I need for our dogs is easily accessible right by the door. I had no idea it was supposed to be a food scoop until I was at the counter buying it- it makes so much more sense as a tennis ball and leash holder, lol!
Define your entryway with a narrow console table like the one below found here. By adding these amazing arched windows, a DIY pallet wall, tall vases and farmhouse style pillar candle holders you can complete the look below in no time!
Bring a little rustic farmhouse garden inside with a shabby wooden ladder and some potted plants. (If you are a plant killer like me, check out our post on nearly indestructible houseplants. I have managed to keep a ponytail palm, a snake plant, and quite a few succulents alive for a few months now!) I have a tall ladder like this that is used as a nightstand next to my bed. I added boards running from front to back and use them to display decor items, and also as a place to hold my basket of remote controls, my phone and some books. I love using ladders as unexpected accent pieces! If you are having trouble finding the perfect ladder to use as an end table or nightstand, this ladder shelf in antique white is perfect!
The Navage Patch is offering free farmhouse printables that would be perfect to print and frame on their own or used to create a gallery wall. If you don’t want to print your own, I am loving these farm implement patent prints! So cool!
Every farmhouse living room needs a big, comfy upholstered chair, and Rachel Ashwell’s Mabel chair fits the bill. Each piece can be customized to your exact specifications, so matching your existing sofa and decor is easy, and also available in a love seat. The best part? This piece is Made in the USA. I love the casters on the front legs. Such a perfect detail!
Bring a little rustic farmhouse into your home office with a DIY chicken wire memo board. This is adorable! If DIY is not your thing, this chicken wire memo board is the perfect size for any room and use. These little clothespins would work perfectly for this project.
Using an antique dresser mirror, this all-white bathroom gets a rich pop of color that lends to a farmhouse look. I recently found an antique dresser mirror at Goodwill for $5, so start looking if this look appeals to you! I also love the corner shelves. What a great way to still have a pedestal sink, but add counter space, in a tiny bathroom!
How cute is this rustic HONEY centerpiece box?! It is even made of reclaimed wood found in Texas. While you may think this is farmhouse decor that is more for spring or summer, I see it as being pretty versatile. The other side is probably not stamped “HONEY” and therefore this can be turned around and used on a buffet or mantle to hold fall and winter seasonal decorations. $30 for a piece that can be used year-round is a steal!
Don’t leave the Dog 1 and Dog 2 out of your farmhouse design ideas! Check out these darling pet beds made from upcycled drawers at Liz Marie Blog.
Or this rustic bed made from reclaimed pallet wood for your Perfect Pibble.
And finally, #20, because of COURSE you need an actual horse in your farmhouse. Oh, Country Living, sometimes you are just too much. I love how the description of the photo focuses entirely on the blue and white accessories and does not mention the giant horse in the corner one time. Written for a not-terribly-observant spouse, perhaps? LOL! I can just hear my Hubby, “Allison? ALLISON. WHEN did we get a horse for the kitchen? Was this here last weekend?” :p
I did promise not to surprise him with any more pets after the last dog….
I hope you enjoyed some new Farmhouse Decor ideas! There are so many ideas on Pinterest (thanks, Fixer Upper!) that I tried to find ideas that I haven’t seen before and also that I would love in my own home! I hope these inspire some new farmhouse decorating ideas for your home, too.
