Create a rustic, farmhouse kitchen with these easy ideas! By Funky Junk Interiors for eBay

Raise your hand if you wish you lived in a farmhouse... 

What is it about the thought of a charming farmhouse? All those nooks and crannies, creaking wood floors, and slamming screen door?

I myself wish my home resembled the real deal, however since it doesn't, I decided to achieve a rustic, farmhouse kitchen look, with simple accessories.

An old sign kitchen backsplash

Create a shiplap styled old sign to run across a kitchen wall! Instant charm, and add hooks so it'll become productive too!
  1. Cut planks to desired length.
  2. Decide what they will do... then paint the center with a kitchen themed stencil.
  3. Hang boards, and add hooks to hang your kitchen gear!

Note: Please check your local building codes. Place wood near a stove at your own risk.

Double the space with an old crate

Doubling up your space is easy! I love using vintage crates, or even little old stools! Add some vintage relics to the mix, and you have one pretty sweet, farmhouse look.
  1. Find a crate that would fit your desired needs and space.
  2. Use it to double up space for a coffee station, spices, or dishes.
  3. Add plenty of vintage charm with your accessories.

Adding instant, extra space with interesting finds

This replication vintage cart became the perfect extension to the kitchen island. A few 2x4s were placed on top, creating an instant coffee station.
