Take a page from this cheery room and pin up copies of sheets from a favorite book as art.
Prints and maps and paintings, oh my! There are so many ways to decorate a farmhouse—and not all of them fit within a frame. Here, some clever artwork ideas that look right at home in the country.
Not all art comes in frames. Thrifted finds like this antique botanical chart, a schoolhouse staple, make a seriously stunning statement. Struggling to score one just like it? We found a modern rendition.
We bet you never thought of using old feed and flour bags for art! Contributing editor Cathe Holden flattened them onto canvases and 3-D stitched them to make the graphics pop.
Vintage signs reading “supermarket,” “grocery,” or “meat market” make gorgeous artwork for a farmhouse. No luck at the antique store? Simply stencil your own!
Or, frame a photograph (like this gorgeous cow image from millhousemercantile.etsy.com) for a rustic focal point.
Press and frame flowers from the farm for a country house-ready wall.
Here’s a thrifty idea: Get your farmhouse style straight from the source! Here, ironstone plates, garden tools, and even a horseshoe become instant entryway art.
When passed down generation to generation and hung on the wall, decorative plates make meaningful art.
Start collecting similar pieces to group together for greater effect. Here, the homeowner displayed her father’s collection of antique maps in assorted frames, all of which were spray-painted gold (Gloss Gold by Krylon) to feel more cohesive. (To give them a weathered look, she struck each one with house keys after the paint dried.)
Skip formal frames and casually suspend prints with wall-friendly adhesive strips to achieve a wispy, floating effect. This trio of feather prints is from violasmarket.com.
Commission a canvas piece inspired by your canine, or another animal from the farm.
An abstract painting by artist—and CL General Store vendor—Deann Hebert adds texture above the chippy mantel in this Georgia farmhouse.
For this boy’s bedroom, designer Stephanie Sabbe was inspired by the vintage landscape paintings you see hanging on the wall. Arranging tip: She started with one large piece centered above the trunk and worked her way out from there.
Embroidery hoop art, like this pretty pattern stitched by our Assistant Managing Editor Katie Bowlby, recalls decor that Grandma would have had in her own farmhouse.
A little Mod Podge goes a long way in turning glass trays into farmhouse-worthy works.
A gallery of wildlife paintings (we spot a cow and bird) and other artwork warms up the white shiplap walls of this farmhouse staircase.
Silhouettes like these are a collector’s dream, but more modern or DIY renditions would look just as fitting in a farmhouse.
Taxidermy, vintage prints and mirrors, and even a horse bit, acts as cozy, rustic art.
Transfer a photo from the farm onto a wood slice for adorable art that is oh-so-country.
