Read on to learn more. 

Reclaimed Wood

Reclaimed wood or reclaimed barnwood is such a fun way to bring a little bit of farm life into your home. Whether you incorporate reclaimed wood in your furniture or if you want to cover an entire wall in it for a shiplap look, you definitely can't go wrong with it. When you are shopping for reclaimed wood or reclaimed wood products, make sure that it doesn't have any wood rot and that it has been treated so it won't get damaged and destroyed in your house. 


Another fun way to make your house scream "Farmhouse?" add some fun, new, farmhouse-inspired lighting? For instance, you can get wire pendants that hang over your kitchen island for sort of a farmhouse eclectic feel or you can get a new chandelier for over your dining set that has a little bit of country inspiration. Just make sure that you aren't doing something obnoxious like a cowboy boot-themed chandelier because that may say "country," but it does not say "farmhouse."

White Paint

If you really want to achieve the farmhouse look, then you need to start with a fresh slate. If you have a house full of colorful walls, then you should either try to paint it or have it professionally painted. But what color? White paint is always the way to go both inside and outside when you want the farmhouse look. Not only will white paint brighten up your space, but it will give you a clean slate to accessorize with fun farmhouse-inspired accessories. 

Having that Joanna Gaines farmhouse look can seem like a dream that you'll never get to take part in, but it doesn't have to be that way. By using the tips in this article, you can hopefully get the farmhouse-inspired house of your dreams without having to break the bank.
