40 Farmhouse Finds From IKEA

You can read an updated version of this post here! 40 Farmhouse Finds & Favorites from IKEA has the latest 2020 goodness in stock now!!

In the past, IKEA may not have been the first place to pop into your mind when you needed to pick up some decor for your vintage home.  Definitely not a place to find antique replicas.

But, I want to challenge that thinking with a collection of 40 Farmhouse Finds from IKEA that I have been curating for the past few weeks.

If you are fortunate enough to live near an IKEA, you will understand what I mean when I say visiting IKEA can result in an all-day adventure and a carload of very affordable home decor.

Here in Seattle, they have just built a brand new store next to their old one (which is being turned into more parking).

I had the priviledge of previewing the new store the day before Opening Day.

40 Farmhouse Decor Ideas from IKEA

 I, along with the other guests, enjoyed an authentic Swedish breakfast in the IKEA Restuarant & Cafe and a pre-opening  day ceremony.

My favorite moment during the ceremony was when IKEA invited the 35 different charities represented there to come and shop the old store.  They could take what they needed as gifts from IKEA for their benefactors.

I just loved that!

 As for the store, let’s just say, they have really outdone themselves up here in the Pacific Northwest!

Here is a sampling of some of the features. . .

  • Nearly 400,000 square feet of shopping!
  • Simplified layout
  • Two floors, upstairs are the showrooms and downstairs is more of the actual shopping, called the marketplace
  • Fun childcare area inspired by a Swedish forest
  • Gift Registry
  • 365 Day Return Policy
  • Free Wi-fi

While I love planning several hours to take the kids to IKEA, if you don’t live near an IKEA, I have good news!

At the time this was published, all of the items in this post were available on the IKEA website.

Update- some have been discontinued, in which case I have added similar product links.

Now let me show a few ways to put together some of the fabulous farmhouse finds tucked away in this store.

I have divided the products into four design boards to give you an idea of have to use the different items together.

Let’s start with the kitchen. . .

 I am so pleased with the quality of their white bucket.  I use it for all kinds of things!
