50+ Captivating Farmhouse Wall Decor Ideas to Fit Spaces Big and also Small

Hanging Floral Plate Arrangement

This is one of the last ideas I came across and the one that made me perk up the most. A vintage plate arrangement for your dining room or living room (or any place in the house that gets a lot of traffic) is a pure genius.

Because you can either do it with pieces you already own, or you can visit a second-hand store to pick out vintage floral plates of different sizes to arrange together.

I just can’t stop looking at this arrangement it’s so pretty. And if you take the time to put it together, your guests are sure to take notice too. It’s a super cheap and ultra creative home decor idea.

Rustic Hanging Pails

Apparently, pails aren’t only for hauling water anymore. Hang them from a hook in an arrangement for three and you’re automatically left with some great looking storage that doubles as rustic home decor. It is a great cheap farmhouse decor idea that can instantly liven up just about any room.

The great thing is you can use them to store almost anything you can think of, like linens, kitchen utensils, toiletries if you hand them in your bathroom.

Windmill Wall Clock

Ah, a windmill clock is probably the ultimate farmhouse decor accessory. It’s such a clever idea and can go great over a table arrangement like in the picture or as the central focal point of a wall arrangement in a living room.

I’m glad I came across this windmill wall clock because it helps make this farmhouse idea collection awesome.

Rustic Floating Shelves

We all need shelves, and for the farmhouse look, these rustic shelves are perfect (and not too pricey either). They are a simple way to create a farmhouse feel and you can use them to store your books in.

One other good thing about these shelves is that they don’t only go with one decor theme but can easily be mixed and matched to fit your needs (and you can even paint them yourself).

DIY Shelf Arrangement

Another way you can decorate your house it to put together a shelved arrangement. If you have smaller pieces that would go great together then you can put them together on a pair of floating shelves like the ones pictured above.

The only thing I would change about it would be distressing the stark white lamps (which can be as easy as using a brillo pad to distress wood). Time to add some shelving to your farmhouse house plans!

Driftwood Mirror

Adding mirrors to any space makes it look bigger and livelier, so you can’t go wrong with adding this twig accented mirror (for which you can find most of your materials right at home). Variations of this mirror can easily be found in a farmhouse decor catalog or even online.

It also makes a great centerpiece for a thoughtful wall arrangement and helps you create depth. If you want to take it an extra step you could even spray paint and distress the twig accents.

Farmhouse Decor Coffee Station

Make your own farmhouse coffee station (isn’t the tea kettle beautiful?). You can use farmhouse accents like pails to hold your coffee condiments, and DIY coffee mug hangers right above it to bring it all together. You can’t get any more country farmhouse decor than this.

Washboard Bulletin

With some magnets, a hook, and some pins, you can make your perfect washboard bulletin and ditch the boring corkboards. This is such a clever idea and it doesn’t take long to put together.

The pins at the bottom can even be used to hold your keys, or you can get more creative and add hooks to the metal part for extra handing options. This is a great antique farmhouse decor piece.

Gallery Entry Wall

This gorgeous gallery entry wall may be the easiest project you’ve ever done. If you’re looking to really get that farmhouse look throughout your home, you have to start at the beginning and the entry is that beginning.

A few strategically hung pictures and some rustic wood signs or old frames instantly transform the entryway. You can pick up old signs and pictures at a flea market, or create them yourself.

Pallet Coffee Station

I love things that you can make from old pallets and this coffee cup holder also satisfies that farmhouse kitchen vibe. You just use strips of wood from an old pallet, paint as you wish, and then add the hooks. This is a beautiful way to display your coffee cups and keep them close at hand. And, did I mention how easy this project is?

These plug-in sconces are great, and they have that farmhouse look due to the chicken wire. I love the look of these for the porch, or even for the entryway if you really want to bring that farmhouse look home.

This can be a repurposing project if you have some of the supplies on hand or if you need to buy them all, it’s honestly not an expensive sconce to make.

This primitive farmhouse wall cabinet is absolutely perfect! It’s made from an old wooden crate, which you can pick up at most flea markets or thrift stores for under $5. You’ll also need some chicken wire, which gives it that great farmhouse look. This would be perfect in the kitchen or bathroom and it’s a relatively easy project.

Staircase Gallery Wall

If you have a staircase, this gallery wall will instantly transform it into an authentic farmhouse style. It’s similar to the entryway display that we touched on before but customized for your staircase. I love the table legs used as décor. They add such a unique and interesting touch to the whole display.

Pallets are so versatile! You can create this beautiful “Be Grateful” pallet wall art or you can use your own inspiration to create your own message. This is a really easy project that costs less than $10.

Mason jars are another thing that you’ll always find in an authentic farmhouse. These DIY mason jar wall lanterns will definitely give you the décor that you want and they’re really easy to make. They’re also gorgeous!

You’ll take the mason jars and affix them to wooden sconces, which you can also fashion yourself. Add pebble stones and some tealight or votive candles and you’re ready to go.

Farmhouse Shelves

One great thing about the farmhouse look is these huge shelves. I love how much space these give you for pictures or knick-knacks. You could also put them in the dining room or kitchen for holding dishes. They’re relatively easy and not expensive at all, especially if you happen to have a few slabs of wood laying around somewhere.

Enamel Mug Decor And Organizer

Metal mugs really take me back to my grandparent’s old home place. You can use those enamel mugs to create this neat organizer that can hold towels, flowers, or anything you want, really.

The old barn wood holder also adds to the whole rustic country look and the overall project is really easy. You can easily attach the mugs with screws or if you don’t want to put a hole in them, use metal clamps to hold them in place.

DIY Wood Pallet Spool Clock

Really put those old pallets to good use with this great spool clock, which has a definite old country feel. You can paint the numbers on with stencils or if you really wanted, you could add a clock kit and making it a working piece of art.

This is definitely going to be a conversation starter and absolutely one of my favorite projects in this collection.

DIY Plank Wall

If you really want to get that farmhouse look, consider adding a plank wall. If you don’t have wood planks, you can pick them up at your local home improvement store. Then just use them to cover your chosen wall.

I love this look by the bathtub or you could add it to the kitchen or any room in the house, really. It’s a relatively quick and really easy way to bring in the farmhouse look.

DIY Wood Striped Wall

source: designdininganddiapers.com

I really love how this wood striped wall looks. This would be so great in a bedroom or den. You’ll need boards to cover the wall and if you want to distress them first, they’ll look even better.

Just attach them in a striping pattern, leaving space between them for the actual wall color to come through. This is an easy project and you can take it down if you ever need to and just have a plain wall again.

Wooden Necklace Holder

Here’s another great décor piece that is made from driftwood but you could use any wood that you find outside. It’s a gorgeous necklace holder and definitely has that rustic country look to it. It’s also really easy to make and since you grab the wood from outside, it’s virtually free, too.

The old rustic drawer pulls really give it that farmhouse look and you can find those at flea markets and thrift stores if you don’t have any on hand.

Rustic Twig Frame

This project is basically free and is a great way to display your favorite photos or art that the kids have made. You just glue twigs together to match around a frame, and you can do this in any size frame you need. Remember that farmhouse style is about the simple things, and this rustic twig frame fits that philosophy perfectly.
