Full Farmhouse Tour, Styling Thrifted Decorations

Full Farmhouse Tour, Styling Thrifted Decorations

Sharing is caring!

Today we’re taking a tour of our farmhouse to see if I met the goal I made when we purchased it years ago: To style our home with at least 90% DIY and thrifted items.

Being that this is the first post of the month, you probably already know that it’s going to be focused on Styling Thrifted Decorations – but for some extra fun today, I thought we’d tour the whole house!

My Behind the Scenes Design School Is Open!

Before I get started today, I also want to let you know that my Behind the Scenes design school is currently open for new members! We’ve only got a few days left, but if you want to come join us, you can REGISTER here now!

If you happen to read this post after the registration window is closed, you can still join the waitlist to be notified when we open back up again next Spring for new members!

The origin of my 90% Goal:

When we purchased this home years ago, being that I was an interior designer and my husband was a contractor, and that our history was in remodeling and painting, we knew that this home was going to be our playground.

We wanted to do most of the work ourselves, and I decided then that I also wanted to style the home with mostly DIY and thrifted decor. I chose a number, 90%, but over the years, I never actually stepped back to quantify if I had met my goal or not.

So we’re doing that together today!

Back in February of 2020 I did a full home tour video & blog post, but since then we’ve made a lot of changes, with some more in the works! Instead of recording a new tour for this post, I decided to share some older images from last year’s tour, because when I do my next full tour, it will include full reveals of all the new spaces, which I can’t wait to share with you!

I’m going to share each room, and then a list of the items that HAVE been DIY or thrifted and help me meet my 90% goal, and then another list of the items I purchased new.

Also, if you prefer watching the video footage to see more of the space, you can view it on YouTube HERE!
