Farmhouse Kitchen Decor Project Roundup

Buffalo Check Christmas DIY Decor #upcycle #repurpose #stencil #buffalocheck
This was a recent vignette from my buffalo check Christmas kitchen decor post,  My Christmas decor has been all taken down, and I am returning my kitchen to its usual farmhouse style.

Farmhouse style is so fun and very inexpensive.  My farmhouse decor is thrifted and/or easy DIY.

I love farmhouse style.  Especially in a kitchen.  It's pretty much like country style only lighter and brighter.  

Links to each project are in bold type!

Back to everyday farmhouse with my cutting board wall shelf project,  and my free drawer front wall hooks project.

Back to everyday farmhouse with my reclaimed wood cutting board wall hook display.  The chippy step stool was purchased at the thrift shop just as is.

One of my daughters gave me the Minnesota hotdish towel!  It's so cute and so Minnesota and so me. 

My Minnesota hotdish dishtowel is hanging on a wooden purse handle.  I love the handle's wood tone with the cutting boards.

Minnesota Hotdish Dishtowel
These vintage purse/tote handles work great for displaying vintage linens.

Another change in this vignette is the sign at the top. 

It used to say bon appetit.  I really liked that sign but changing up your existing decor is cheaper than upcycling thrifted pieces.

I painted it with two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old white.

I buffalo checked it with my *Old Sign Stencils stencil using black craft paint.

I also used Vintage from the Old Sign Stencils Market Extensions set.  I stenciled my word with Decoart Chalky Finish Paint in Rouge.

*Old Sign Stencils provided me with complimentary samples.
All opinions about these fabulous products are my own.

I sanded my stenciling lightly with 220 grit sandpaper and faux distressed the edges with my Folk Art layering block and Ceramcoat Walnut Noyer craft paint.

Hmmm.  Buffalo checks have moved into the kitchen!  I foresee buffalo check curtains coming in the near future!

  1. It's fun creating new vignettes just by moving pieces in and out. It keeps things looking fresh.

  2. You are killing me with cuteness! Love the rolling pin tree and so sorry to see Christmas decorating go.... :(

  3. Very cool, Charlene! I like all the vignettes but I really like the way you displayed the rolling pin collection. How did you fasten them to the shutter boards? I have about four rolling pins that I would like to find a way to display.

    Thanks for a great "idea" post!

  4. I made the lunch sign. Link in post to the project. Thanks. The links are hard to see. Working on it.

  5. I'm crushing on the wooden snowflake and the blue sleigh rides sign. Such a pretty collection you've put together!
