We’re always adding to and amending our dream kitchen wishlist, but most of us don’t have the budget for a total kitchen makeover. So today we’ve got seven farmhouse kitchen must-haves to achieve that classic country look on a classic country budget.
What country kitchen is complete without this traditional farmhouse staple? And these roosters won’t wake you up at the crack of dawn!
The incredible criss-cross shiplap below adds instant character to any builder-grade kitchen island, and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. If you’re a little handy with a jig saw, hammer and a paint brush, you can DIY your way to a more charming country kitchen island. Googling “budget DIY kitchen island shiplap” is a great way to get you started.
A big ol’ farmhouse kitchen sink. You’ll find some brilliant farmhouse kitchen inspo on Pinterest! We’re partial to this dark fireclay look.
Rustic brick or wood accents with a modern tile mosaic
We have some great examples of this in our Pinterest board on country kitchens, and you can find some darling wooden decor on our website.
And don’t be afraid to choose an unorthodox color! We adore this farmhouse remodel with pastel blue-green cabinetry!
Accent letters are a great way to make a personal statement in any room of the house. The word “EAT” for instance, adds character and coordinates well if you have some of those galvanized accent pieces we mentioned above.
What farmhouse kitchen must-haves have we left out? What do you love about your kitchen?
But first, we feel sort of obligated to mention the Big Event that happened over the weekend…

We’re back today with one of our most popular blog post topics – customer favorites. This is the one where we offer you some country decor inspiration by running down the list of what everybody’s loving right now. Let’s do it!
History lesson! For those new to this style, it mimics a 19th century American style of embroidery. According to Needlepointers.com, it is believed that candlewicking or whitework (named for the distinctive white thread on white fabric) was conceived by the women traveling westward. Because thread and other sewing materials were very limited, the style made use of the colonial knot, which required less thread, was sturdier and held up to heavy use and washing.
Happy Friday! We’re back today with another edition of customer favorites. These are our top 10 country decor best sellers from the month of February. You can find them all at Primitive Home Decors, along with different sizes, styles and colors to coordinate with your existing decor.
