That Old Farmhouse Appeal
I love having decorations on my table. Finding simple ways to decorate (especially our newly remodeled living room and dining room) is fun for me. I like country, primitive, vintage type items and I am really excited about the idea of remodeling my kitchen in the future...mostly for a dishwasher, but I want it to look like a traditional farmhouse kitchen.
I feel blessed to live in a farmhouse that has character and history to it and I love the idea of decorating in ways that highlight a primitive farmhouse era, with modern updates of course! No outhouse for me!!! lol!
The great thing about decorating is that you DON"T have to spend a lot of money to do it. In the picture above, I took an antique 4 gallon crock that I purchased at an estate sale for $10 and filled it with silk flowers and eucalyptus I purchased from Hobby Lobby for around $25. The result - a beautiful centerpiece on my dining room table. The table sits in a corner, so this centerpiece is a perfect fit for the table.
Be sure to look around your house to get ideas on incorporating old and new items for that rustic feel to your home.
