Farmhouse tables, chairs and other farmhouse furniture can give an old fashioned country charm to any home. Whether you’re repurposed older items or making new farmhouse classics to decorate, most importantly, all it requires is a bit of imagination. One way to get farmhouse furniture ideas that are fresh and new to your mind is to look at what nature has to offer. Look around and see how things have been decorated in your surrounding areas. If there’s a garden festival happening nearby, take note of the food and beverages displayed as well as the decor around the venue.

The style you choose should be one that complements your personality as well as the space you have available for it. To help get your ideas flowing, I’ve come up with some interesting ideas for a few different home decorating themes. Whether you want an English country farmhouse, logo design, summer boho design or something in between, here are the spring vintage farmhouse decorating ideas for you to consider:
Spring Vintage Farmhouse Inspired by Nature
If you like the charm of a Victorian style home decorated with antiques and farmhouse furniture, try a visit to an antique farmhouse sale. These places often host weekly or monthly auctions where furniture from throughout the history of farm life is sold. Everything from tractors, sleighs, stables and more can be found on these sales. The pieces on sale range from decorative seating to decorative accessories for your home. You’ll find tables, chairs, benches, toy chests and more.
Spring Vintage Farmhouse Theme
You can bring this charming theme to your home by checking out your local flea market, craft fairs and second hand stores for old-timey farmhouse furniture and decor. Antique dealers are also a great resource for finding interesting pieces and there are many flea markets and second hand stores that hold flea market type events. If you have no other place to go for your vintage furniture needs, vintage shops should be your next choice. Check out antique shops in your area for ideas on where to buy farmhouse tablecloths, chairs and more.
Spring Vintage Country Home Decor
If you want to bring a more down to earth look to your home, try a country theme with vintage farmhouse decor. This look is all about bringing life back to the period decorating styles popular in the late 1800’s. With this look you want to use antiques and period wall art to pull together the look you’re going for. Look for pieces that are designed with an old world flair like wrought iron, old wooden shutters and lots of handcrafted furniture. The rustic feel of these antiques will add a charm and warmth to your home that you won’t find with modern contemporary pieces.

With the right research you can find some great buys at an antique store that will fit perfectly into your vintage home decor style.
