Rustic Farmhouse is one of the best decor styles for any home on a budget. So many of the pieces can be upcycled, made through some clever do-it-yourself work, or even savvy thrift store and garage sale finds. The hallmarks of the style are pastel, muted colors, painted wood furnishings, distressed finishes, and burnished or weathered metallic accents. These lend themselves naturally to vintage finds, DIY aging treatments, and hand-crafted items. If you’re willing to tap into your inner crafter, you can make a gorgeous rustic farmhouse room (or even an entire house) for a surprisingly low cost.
1. Vintage Window Headboard
If you’re looking for a cheap, simple DIY headboard project, look no further than old windows. Frequently available on sites like Craigslist and the Facebook marketplace, vintage windows are an extremely affordable way to make a simple, unique headboard. With weathered paint or stain to match your decor, they’re an effortless way to make your bedroom look far more sophisticated and coordinated. The windows can be mounted in a classic symmetrical style, or staggered for a more modern take on the rustic trend.
