I’m always drawn to certain images when searching for inspiration for home decor. Primitive farmhouse decor always seems to be what I circle back to. It is somewhat utilitarian which I also love and can be achieved easily and on a budget. Two more decor styles I am drawn to.
Adding Primitive Farmhouse Decor with Wooden Objects
This old milk crate is one of my favorite pieces I own. I use it as decor and storage. I have fallen in love with utilitarian pieces. It helps keep the clutter to a minimum and provides the warmest touch to any space.
Chicken Feeder as a Plate Holder
I got this chicken feeder at a local sale and it is the best plate holder. Just make sure obviously that you clean these pieces really well. REALLY, really well. Metal is another way to add texture but I just try to keep these pieces to a minimum.
Instant Wall Art Adds Just the Right Amount of Primitive Farmhouse Style
I have found that wicker plate chargers and baskets add such an amazing amount of neutral texture and these are so cheap. You can find them at almost any thrift store. I just love the treasure hunt to find them. Really I like to treasure hunt for all my decor. But it’s more fun when you’re looking for a specific item and you find it!!
White Ironstone Pitchers Look Simple and Timeless
Ironstone is a must in my home. Pitchers, bowls and plates. I hang the platters on my wall for a simple yet elegant touch. It’s minimal and clean. The two styles I try to achieve. Often times, however, the prices on these pieces are a little steep. I usually have a budget in mind when I am out treasure hunting. Don’t over pay just because you want the piece. I find eventually another piece will come along at a price you can afford. I have made the over spending mistake in the past.
Baskets are another utilitarian piece that I have in almost every room in my home. I fill it with throw blankets, books, magazines. Pretty much anything that will fit in them that can hide things I don’t want to see everyday is what I use them for. I like the warmer colors if I can find them but have also painted some white over the years so they fit better into my decor.
The last few items I am usually drawn to are old quilts, old landscape painting, oil paintings, cast iron and old spoons used in the kitchen. Wood cutting boards tend to catch my eye at sales as well. What can I say? I love to collect pieces that have a history and tell a story. Don’t you?
What are some of your favorite primitive decor items you always buy when you see them? I have many. Bowls, mainly yellow ware. Chairs for some reason seem to find me even when I don’t need them! Ironstone is another favorite, though in Texas it seems to be hard to come by. I love small cabinets you can hang on the wall. Again, I have too many!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. It means so much to me to have you here.
Be sure to share your primitive finds with me on social media.
