Interior decorating fads come and go, but the farmhouse trend seems to be here to stay. It’s popular now even with mainstream stores, so everyone is chasing the next farmhouse decor piece they can add to their home. There’s something comforting and cozy about the farmhouse vibe. Are you looking to incorporate it into your own home? Forget the expensive price tags at the store. You can easily try these 5 DIY Ideas for Farmhouse Decor On A Budget. Start small and soon you’ll work your way up to a farmhouse decorated entirely by you.
1. Rustic Bathroom Sign
Cute signs are great because they can be used anywhere in your home, but bathrooms tend to be forgotten about when it comes to interior decorating.
Other rooms of your home will simply get used more, so they’ll be seen by more people. When someone goes to the bathroom, it’s for one purpose and then they’re done. Still, that doesn’t mean you have to leave it undecorated.
(This style sign would look amazing in any Bathroom… you can find them over at Pottery Barn but you could easily make one of these yourself with some wood… paint and stencils!)
A rustic bathroom sign will fit right in with any bathroom without looking out of place. The key is not to go overboard in the design, or it’ll look too busy for such a low-key space in your home.
With the right supplies, you can make a rustic bathroom sign in just a few minutes. Think about what you want it to say and then use wooden letters to spell that message out. Spray over it with a rustic colored paint and your bathroom will be looking better in no time.

2. Mason Jar Light
Mason jars have also become popular because they share in that same rustic, homey vibe that people want in their homes. You can drink and eat out of mason jars, but why not use them as decor?

You can quickly make your vanity lights into ones that use mason jars as light fixtures. All the supplies are already probably in your home, since it only takes a few Mason jars, a Sharpie, a hammer and one nail.

3. Antique Window Headboard
For a bit of a larger project, you can look around for a few old windows and make them into a headboard. No carpentry skills needed, since these will be attached to the wall behind your bed.
(For the Farmhouse Lover… these windows are to die for! You never know what you will find at the Thrift Shop… Flea Market… Restores and of course Antique Shops! No direct site for this beauty… found on Pinterest)
You’d think an old window would be taken out because it’s broken, but they get recycled all the time. People take them home from recycling centers or snatch them up at yard sales to use as art or other decor pieces.

4. Pastel Chalkboard
Chalkboards are another way to throw back to simpler days, where the rustic decor trend draws its roots from. If you find one that’s a size you like, paint it a pastel color and hang it in your home.

They’re great for getting the family to interact even on the busiest days, since everyone can leave a note or read a message before they head out the door. Of course the traditional Chalkboard is always a great alternative.

5. Storage Bench
For those who are looking for a bigger project where you can spend time at your workbench, you should build a rustic storage bench. The open storage concept lends a hand back to your rustic theme, and it can double as a bench for people to sit on and take their shoes off at before they enter your home.
(How amazing is this DIY Rustic Farmhouse Bench? You can make one for your very own with this incredible DIY over at Cherished Bliss.)

Try New Projects
Rustic decor is anything that looks a little aged, like it’s been on a farm that’s been operating for decades. Certain colors and decor pieces can really work these themes into your home, like an antique window headboard or mason jar lights.
Whatever you decide to do, if the finished project looks a little loved and a little more worn, it’ll fit right in with your rustic farmhouse interior decorating.
