One Room Challenge Week Three is here! Last week I showed you my vision boards and since then I’ve been shopping for all of the farmhouse style family room decor. I’ve been to most of my favorite bargain shopping places, but I also have found things around the house that I can re-purpose for this room. This will help me stay in budget for the project.
Although husband was going to start the wood wall last week, I took too long to make up my mind about the style(this is not a new occurrence). So we’ve moved that project to this weekend. The wall treatment I finally chose is pretty unique and I’m really excited to show it to you! I think it will complete our farmhouse style family room perfectly.
I have found all of the big pieces for the room. The couch, chair, and rug are en route so lets all hold our breath everything comes this week as promised. Ordering the Ikea Ektorp couch and chair online was incredibly simple. It only took a few minutes, shipping was only $59, and they will be delivered this Monday. I’m very pleased with the Ikea shopping experience so far.

Mike built this sofa table a couple years ago for my office. It’s been hidden under office supplies so I decided to move it behind the couches in the newly decorated family room.
For end tables, we’ve done a fun little project to revive some old pieces. These were part of my “far east inspired” decor phase. After that five minute fad ended, they were stuck in storage for years. During a recent light bulb moment (that only took like ten years to think of), I asked husband if he could cut off the wings and make a new top. He said he wasn’t sure but, as always, he did it in no time. Once they are distressed I think they will look great in the room.
This chunky metal jug was at an antique shop and definitely belongs in my farmhouse style room. There is a similar style jug at Wayfair if you don’t want to search for an antique one.
Pottery Barn had a basket I loved but there was no way I was spending $129 for it, so I set out to find a much cheaper one. This one was at World Market for $34.99! It will hold all our family room blankets. Adding all of these different textures is important since I’m using so much white.
This vintage style rug is actually brand new. I’ve never ordered from the company before so I’m a little nervous but I checked the return policy and I can always send it back. It was a great price, free shipping, and I used a 20% off coupon. Once it gets here I will share the link if I think the quality is great! The best part of the rug is how vintage and worn it looks. My husband is probably going to ask why I paid for a new rug that looks super old. 😉The great thing about being frugal with your basic pieces is then you can splurge on something really meaningful to add to the room. For the wood wall above the table I am working with the owner of the amazing Etsy Shop Hoosier Farmhouse Interiors. The owner Katie’s creates these beautiful handmade signs. She is custom designing a piece for me. She has been amazing to work with! I can’t wait to see the finished product hanging over the sofa table on the wood wall.As you can see it’s all coming together. There are still a lot of accessories left to find. Those can sometimes be harder to find than larger pieces. This weekend I have to reassemble the end tables, paint the lamps, and Mike will create the wood wall and we’ll be creating a tutorial for readers. Check back next Thursday to see our progress!
