I've been focusing a lot on my own home these past couple weeks. I don't have a "fixer-upper" in the sense that my home needs a lot of work, but there was and is a lot of painting that needs to get done. My home is a post and beam with a lot of exposed wood so it kind of feels like a farmhouse which is perfect for all the new accessories we've added online. Oh, did you think I was going to post pictures of my house? I will soon, I promise. I'm not quite ready yet. You can get a glimpse here though. I will show you the accessories I've been adding in though.
We kind of can't keep this Repurposed Metal Drum Shelf in stock since I posted it on Instagram a while back. Oh, if you clicked that Instagram link, that is my house. So this wall shelf looks like a slice of a metal barrel with some wooden shelves and handles for a very rustic farmhouse feel. Add some old bottles or books or small picture frames. We like to add some faux greenery to liven it up but bud vases with real picks from your garden will work too.
Any lover of farmhouse style loves olive buckets. Whether they are reproductions like these or vintage ones like the ones we have coming in next week. They come in two sizes and are the perfect container for cotton stems or these faux ferns. The metal has a perfect patina of wear and tear that looks just like they were used in the fields to pick olives during the harvest.
Another shop favorite is this Wooden Tray with 5 Glass Bottles. We like to see it on a sideboard or bookshelf with a single flower or cotton stem. You can add a fresh flower to each for a colorful display or leave it empty cause all on it's own it has dimension that will add some character to your home.
This metal wall rack with 3 metal pots might be one of my favorites. I do love it with the ferns but I want to put this on the wall next to my sons craft table in the playroom. Fill it with "craymons" and "muckers". Still another perfect utensil holder for the kitchen too. Makeup brushes, hair brushes and on and on.
Another great vessel for our ferns are these very rustic zinc finished metal pots. No two are alike in their patina and each one has a scalloped mouth and cute little scalloped saucer. I have quite a few of these around my house cause I'm a plant killer. Faux ferns nevah die!
And last for today is this super farmy and rustic root cellar box. Most of us buy our roots from the grocery store now, so we can use our cellar boxes for decoration. You know what would be super to do with this is purchase it for a gift. Line with a Pehr napkin, like we did here, and get a bottle of wine, some chocolates and cheese knives. Voila! Instant houswarming gift!
