Finding Rustic Farmhouse Storage Solutions

rustic farmhouse storage solutionsRustic farmhouse storage solutions are becoming more and more popular all the time. They look fantastic and cozy and can solve all kinds of storage problems you have been having around the house. You can use them in the kitchen, bathroom, shed and even the front hall. The sky is literally the limit with this style of home decor.

Nothing makes a home feel more comfortable and cozy as farmhouse home decor. The colors are generally warm, there is often a lot of wood involved and best of all? These items are cheap to make yourself and just as cheap to find when shopping for them. The question is, where do you start looking for them?

Two super simple ways to track down rustic farmhouse storage solutions to use in your home:

The internet

What can’t you find on the internet right? Check out online sites like craigslist to get all kinds of materials cheap, sometimes even free, that you can use to make your own farmhouse decor and storage options. A lot of this stuff, like wooden crates or glass jars, for example, can be found online with people literally giving them away.

You can then use them as is or use them as pieces to build other things. You can even use old wooden skids as planters outside in the yard for a homey landscaping option. Some simple stain or a coat of paint can be added to bring some color into the equation as well.

The internet will not only provide you with the place to pick up the items you need to build things but also the instructions on how to build them. A quick search of Pinterest, for example, will allow you to track down just about any idea you are thinking of DIY constructing.

There is a wealth of things out there just waiting for you to find them and they are usually incredibly cheap or again, even free.
