A few weeks ago on my 29th birthday I did what most people in their late 20’s do… go to Ikea for a fun filled day of shopping for our home. Isn’t that what the cool kids do? Well, I’ve never been a cool kid so I guess that doesn’t matter. Jose & I learned a valuable tip: Never go to Ikea on a rainy Saturday, you will be taken away by a sea of people throwing pillows & shopping for sofas. It was a mad house. None the less we had a great time & we found a few farmhouse decor & I thought I would share some of those finds with you guys here on the blog today…
Here are the above items as Jose wrote on our farm blog, TheWhiteCottageFarm.Com:
This faux Murraya is great on each side of the entryway inside or out. Also with proper scaling these look great on the top step of the porch. [Link Here]
Looking for a potter for the Murraya above, put it in this galvanized plant pot. [Link Here]
Finish out the look with this metal watering can. This piece adds just another level of detail to the design, and if you have any real plants around it can do what it’s meant for. [Link Here]
This light is one of my favorite buys from the IKEA trip. This over-sized metal lamp is a wonderful anchor to any space. [Link Here]
This dish towel fits in perfect with any farmhouse style, one day when we our kitchen renovation is over, we will fully be able to use them. [Link Here]
We picked up a few of these vases and have them placed around the house with flowers in hopes of speeding up this cold weather March and bring spring in. [Link Here]
Lastly, we bought three of these cushions for the three white metal chairs we have at our dinning room table. [Link Here]
& here are some of the items styled in our home now. We don’t have them all styled, but most of them & I caught a few shots with my cell phone today to share with you guys how well Ikea decor fits into our 1800’s farmhouse…
Some boxwood tress on our back stoop & by our front door along with the metal buckets & black watering can.
The chair pads on our white metal chairs in the dining room. The chair pads add a cozy farmhouse vibe & also make the metal chairs a little more comfortable.
Some of the tea towels in our dining room.. so pretty that we can even keep the drawer open. The tea towels there are so cheap, I highly recommend buying a whole bunch on your next trip to Ikea. Also those lovely greens in those pots are Ikea as well… I also recommend picking up a ton of those on your next Ikea trip to place in all your vignettes in your home.
& lastly those clear glass jars styled on top of our piano as you can see above. They are the perfect vintage inspired vase for any room, & again, super affordable! Also, that sectional is Ikea as well which we’ve had for years & love! I’ll share more of our Ikea finds soon, but for now these are working great in our fixer upper. As you know most of our house is in complete demo mode so it’s so nice to have a few areas semi-decorated in the mean time & doing it on a budget is pretty easy with these farmhouse finds from Ikea. What are some of your favorite finds from Ikea lately? Let me know in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! It means the world to me! xx
