I love HGTV. I usually have it on in the background, and spend way too much time getting sucked into Property Brothers, Flip or Flop, and of course, Fixer Upper. Joanna Gaines has taken the interior design industry by storm and farmhouses are the next big thing. Let’s be honest, farmhouses never really “left”, they are a classic style that is beautiful and functional. But now, you don’t need several acres and a chicken coop to achieve that typical farmhouse style.

Here are 16 farmhouse DIY’s for home décor that work just about anywhere.
