Bringing the Farmhouse Home: My Journey Decorating My Kitchen with Finds from Hobby Lobby

As someone who loves the charming, timeless feel of farmhouse style, I was thrilled when Hobby Lobby began carrying more and more farmhouse-inspired home decor items. Their collection has really expanded over the years to become a true destination for farmhouse lovers looking to bring some country character into their homes. Naturally, when it came time to redecorate my own kitchen, I knew I wanted to incorporate as much Hobby Lobby farmhouse flair as I could. The result is a warm, welcoming heart-of-the-home that feels fresh yet familiar. Join me as I share my hobby lobby farmhouse kitchen decor journey!

Testing the Waters with Small Touches

At first, I wasn’t sure how far I wanted to commit to the farmhouse aesthetic. As much as I loved the look, I didn’t want my kitchen to feel too themed or over-the-top. So I started small, picking up little accents here and there to sprinkle a hint of farmhouse charm into the space. Hobby Lobby made this so easy and affordable – I’d just browse the aisles and grab whatever caught my eye in my price range.

Some of my favorite starting pieces were the ceramic roosters and hens I placed on the windowsill, a reclaimed-wood “Bless This Kitchen” sign above the stove, and a couple of galvanized metal buckets tucked into corners. I also stocked up on cotton kitchen towels with cute farmhouse sayings and natural wood cooking utensils. These subtle touches gave me a taste of the style without overwhelming the space.

Freshening Up With Farmhouse Fabrics

Once I felt sure that I wanted to pursue the farmhouse kitchen vibe, I began looking for ways to work it into the room’s existing elements. An easy refresh was to swap out some of the generic cotton curtain panels for the beautiful farmhouse-print curtains and valances available at Hobby Lobby. They have so many charming patterns to choose from – I went with a classic red gingham check that immediately made the room feel cozier.

I also replaced the cushions on my breakfast nook bench with a complementing red buffalo check fabric. Between the curtains and cushions, it gave the whole seating area a more inviting, country appeal. And changing up the fabric elements was a quick, affordable way to test drive the style before committing to pricier, permanent changes.

Investing in Farmhouse Furniture Staples

Once I saw how well the farmhouse look came together, I started looking into larger furniture investments to really cement the aesthetic. The furniture available at Hobby Lobby made it fun and approachable. I fell in love with a beautiful reclaimed wood dining table – it has all the character of an antique farmhouse table at a fraction of the price.

To up the cozy factor even more, I added accent ladderback dining chairs with woven raffia seats and a matching bench. For additional seating, I chose a metal and wood stool with a tractor seat pad. The mix of wooden furniture with galvanized metal, raffia, and burlap detailing is the perfect combination for an inviting farmhouse dining space.

Curating My Farmhouse Kitchen Cabinet

With the major pieces in place, I turned my focus to accessorizing the kitchen cabinet and shelves. This was one of my favorite parts – I felt like a kid in a candy store gathering all kinds of charming farmhouse decor pieces to display.

I stocked up on enamelware mugs, plates, and pitchers for that timeless vintage feel. I added some wire baskets and galvanized trays to corral all the odds and ends that end up cluttering kitchen counters. Rustic pottery, wood crates, and bottles filled with dried lavender and wheat bundles make perfect farmhouse accents. For my cabinet shelves, I opted for whitewashed decorative tins and ceramic canisters with sayings like “Coffee” and “Sugar.”

I love walking by and noticing a new detail each time. It really brings the whole farmhouse vibe together.

Creating a Rustic Yet Modern Backsplash

While I adored all the reclaimed wood and vintage finds, I still wanted my kitchen to feel light and contemporary. I decided to bring in that balance through the backsplash. I fell in love with a beautiful white subway tile with just the subtlest texture – it has an aged, almost mineral look but still reflects light beautifully.

To incorporate a hint of farmhouse style, I opted for a classic bricklay pattern but did one section over the stove in a herringbone design. The natural grout ties the whole look together. It’s the perfect blend of rustic and modern that complements both my existing kitchen elements and all my new farmhouse accents.

Accessorizing with Farmhouse Wall Décor

No farmhouse space is complete without an array of wall accents to give it that cozy, collected over time feel. Fortunately, Hobby Lobby offers endless options for this. I picked out several wooden signs with sayings like “Farm Fresh Eggs” and “Homegrown,” as well as a big reclaimed wood clock for above the sink.

For a more elegant touch, I framed some beautiful botanical prints and old seed package illustrations. I also couldn’t resist a gallery wall of black and white family photos in rustic wood frames. The combination of heartfelt quotes, natural materials, and family memories brings the whole farmhouse vibe together.

Illuminating with Rustic Lighting

To finish my newly decorated farmhouse kitchen, I needed lighting options that continued the cozy ambiance. Hobby Lobby’s assortment of rustic fixtures fit the bill beautifully. Right over my kitchen table, I installed a galvanized metal chandelier with exposed Edison bulbs that casts the perfect warm glow during family dinners.

For task lighting, I opted for single-bulb pendants with visible filaments and black accents over my kitchen island and sink. They provide plenty of light for food prep and clean up while complementing my modern backsplash. For my upper cabinets, I added adjustable shelves lined with galvanized metal that I can use to display and highlight beautiful ceramics and glassware. The mix of modern and industrial styles ties the whole light scheme together perfectly.

Enjoying the Fruits of My Farmhouse Labor

Looking around my newly redecorated kitchen, I feel so at home and content. Whenever I need inspiration for cooking, cleaning, or just sitting down with my family, all the charming details fill me with motivation and joy. I have Hobby Lobby to thank for making it so easy to create my perfect farmhouse space on a budget.

Now when friends come over, I love showing off special finds like the porcelain “Greetings from the Farm” plaque I found in the seasonal section or my collection of bright speckled enamelware arranged just so. It’s a space that’s completely personalized to my style thanks to the amazing selection of decor I discovered at Hobby Lobby. I can’t wait to enjoy many homecooked family meals together in this welcoming farmhouse escape we’ve created right in our own kitchen.
