Sprucing Up My Kitchen Walls with Farmhouse Finds from Hobby Lobby

Decorating on a Budget Never Looked So Good!

I’ve been feeling the itch to redecorate my kitchen for months now, but I’ve been hesitant to take on another big decorating project so soon after redoing my living room last year. However, my kitchen walls have been boring me to tears with their blank white paint and sad empty spaces crying out for some character. I knew it was time for a change.

As much as I’d love to give my kitchen a total redesign, that’s just not in the budget right now. But I realized I could make a serious style impact without breaking the bank by focusing on some new kitchen wall decor from Hobby Lobby. Their impressive selection of wall decor provides the perfect opportunity to give my space a mini makeover on a small budget. Plus, they’re always rotating in new inventory and running great sales, so I knew I’d find some fresh decor pieces to get excited about.

I decided to head to my local Hobby Lobby over the weekend to scout out their latest farmhouse-style kitchen wall decor options. I love the cozy, vintage feel of farmhouse decor, and I hoped to find some charming pieces to warm up my kitchen’s modern aesthetic.

The moment I stepped foot in the store and saw their gorgeous displays of wall art, mirrors, shelves, and more, I knew I’d struck gold. They must have just rotated their stock because so many of the wall decor items were new from my last visit. I started enthusiastically filling up my cart, imagining each piece I picked in my kitchen. Within 30 minutes, I had so many stellar finds, I was worried I’d go over my budget.

To reign things in, I decided to focus my haul on smaller accent pieces, knowing I could always come back for larger statement-making items later on. I chose a fantastic wood and metal “Blessed” sign for only $12.99, as well as metal coffee cup-shaped hooks for $7.99 each. They’re the perfect farmhouse accessories to dress up my blank walls without breaking the bank.

One of my favorite finds of the day was a charming oval wood and wire wreath with little faux eucalyptus sprigs for just $24.99. It will look so lovely hung over my kitchen window as the focal point of the whole space. I also picked up a set of galvanized metal buckets for only $14.99. I can already envision them mounted to the wall near my pantry, holding wooden spoons, whisks, and spatulas for an eye-catching display.

Beyond smaller accessories, Hobby Lobby offers a fantastic selection of larger kitchen wall art prints and decor signs to make a bolder impact. I decided on a stunning wooden sign that says “Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread” for $34.99. Between the distressed wood background and the black cursive font surrounded by a wreath of wheat, it really captures the cozy farmhouse look I’m going for.

To complement the sign, I found the perfect wall-mounted pot rack made from galvanized metal that looks straight out of an old country kitchen. At just $59.99, it was very reasonably priced for such a substantial iron piece. I love that it provides both function and style.

In addition to wall art and accessories, Hobby Lobby offers a wealth of beautiful wall mirrors that are perfect for opening up smaller kitchen spaces. I was so tempted by a gorgeous arched iron mirror for $74.99 that would add instant vintage appeal over my sink. But worried it might make the space feel cramped, I decided to hold off for now. I wrote down the item number in case I get the itch for it down the road!

After hitting the motherlode of amazing farmhouse finds, I started taking a look at more modern and contemporary kitchen wall decor options to balance out the vintage vibe. Hobby Lobby really does have a diverse range of home decor styles at affordable prices. I found an abstract black and white art print with pops of orange that would pair nicely with my stainless steel appliances, as well as some fun geometric metal wall sculptures that remind me ofAlexander Calder mobiles.

By sticking to mostly smaller accent pieces ranging from $12 to $25, I was able to pick up about 10 fabulous new additions for a mere $200 total. And that’s before any discounts! By shopping sales and using coupons, I can easily knock at least 20% off that number. For a whole new look, $200 is an incredible steal. And I still have so many more options to come back for without blowing my budget.

After checking out, I couldn’t wait to get home and see how my fun new finds would look in my kitchen. I was impressed by how many high-quality materials Hobby Lobby uses in their wall decor at such reasonable price points. From solid wood and distressed metal to canvas art prints and ceramic signs, the construction feels far pricier than what I actually paid.

I decided to start with the smaller accessories like the “Blessed” sign, coffee cup hooks, the wreath, and metal buckets. I filled the buckets with cooking utensils and hung them side-by-side on the wall by my pantry. Then I centered the wreath above my window over the sink. It only took about 20 minutes to get these few pieces up, but already my kitchen looked so much more lively and personal!

Next came the larger wall-mounted pot rack, which was slightly more of an installation process. But the included mounting hardware made it straightforward even for someone like me who’s decoratively-challenged. Within an hour of returning from Hobby Lobby, I had accomplished a mini kitchen makeover using their inspirational wall decor items that gave my space the updated farmhouse vibe I was dreaming of!

Over the next couple weeks, I continued adding to my new kitchen wall decor collection piece by piece. I nails down the art prints and mirrors, and displayed some ceramic utensil holders and embellished glass canisters on floating shelves I already owned. The end result is a kitchen that finally feels like home, and shows off my style, thanks to the perfect farmhouse wall accents from Hobby Lobby.

Not only did I manage to stick to my initial $200 budget, but I also took advantage of a 20% off sale and stacked coupons to end up saving over $75 in the end! For less than $150 total, I was able to give my kitchen a refreshing style boost – just what I hoped for when I was daydreaming about ways to liven up my wall space on a tight budget.

Based on this delightful experience hunting for budget-friendly kitchen wall makeover pieces, here are my top tips for affordably enhancing your kitchen’s look with Hobby Lobby finds:

  • Take advantage of sales and coupons as much as possible to save big on your wall decor haul. Just signing up for the Hobby Lobby app gets you immediate access to offers.
  • Focus first on smaller accessories under $25 to refresh your walls without overspending upfront. Add larger statement pieces over time.
  • Mix farmhouse inspired decor with modern elements for an eclectic look with widespread appeal. Hobby Lobby excels at both styles.
  • Check back often for new inventory hitting the shelves. Hobby Lobby rotates stock every couple of weeks so there are always hidden gems to uncover.
  • Measure carefully and utilize the online item dimensions to ensure wall art and mirrors will fit your existing kitchen space.
  • Take photos of your empty walls to reference when shopping. This helps you visualize how pieces will look in your home.
  • Purchase decor items that serve functional purposes like hooks, shelves, and pot racks to get the most bang for your buck.

With a little planning and savvy sale shopping, you too can transform your kitchen from blah to beautiful on the cheap with Hobby Lobby’s extensive collection of budget-friendly wall decor. I can’t wait to see how my newly spruced up farmhouse kitchen evolves as I gradually add more personality-packed accents from their ever-changing inventory.
