Modern Farmhouse Decor on a Budget

Calling all Fixer Upper fans! As if Chip & JoJo weren't enough to get you hooked, how cute is all of the rustic farmhouse decor they use?? I can't get enough of that shiplap and all those sweet vintage touches they add to everyone's homes. It got me thinking about what direction I wanted to take our home decor in, especially having just bought our first home! I loved the farmhouse look, but didn't want to take it too far and lose my modern touch which I love as well.



As I got to shopping and searching for the perfect pieces for our new place, I saw my heart sinking seeing those price tags skyrocketing. The farmhouse style has completely blown up since the show, which is great, but not so fun for my wallet. That's why I was so excited to see the massive selection of home decor available at Gordmans! I never realized how much they had to offer and at amazing price points! Every item I got was $10 or less and I walked out of there feeling so inspired to decorate our home, particularly our new fireplace mantle!



I love this frame and sign combo the most. It was such a simple touch to our mantle that is also a great daily reminder! I plan to put a family photo in the frame after we have our session this spring, but for now the monogram is a nice touch. I'm sure I'll never burn this candle, but the sleek grey candlestick is a nice combination of classic and contemporary.



The metal orbs are super popular right now and I love how they add just the right modern touch to keep things balanced. I like to rotate mine from my coffee table tray to my mantle depending on my mood. Also on my coffee table: a little pop of yellow! I just love how something as simple as some sunny faux flowers in a cheap mason jar can really brighten a room and therefore your mood!






Can you believe all of these pieces were less than $10? They are great quality, like you would find at any major retailer, but at a fraction of the cost. I love that Gordmans has such steep discounts on items I would otherwise have to window shop! They had tons of other items I loved but just didn't have the right space for (the struggle, right?!), but I thought I'd round up a few of my favorites for those of you who might have the perfect home for them!




How cute are those wire baskets?! I think they'd be perfect for collecting my mail or even as fruit baskets! The rug and orb globe are stunning, too!

Do you have a Gordmans nearby? (Double check here!) Are you in love with the Fixer Upper style decor? Tell me which one of these pieces is your favorite!

  2. I can't believe you got all of that for under $75! That's amazing! We are remodeling our house and want to have a farmhouse theme in our kitchen. It doesn't look like there's a Gordman's near me, so I'm going to have to check out their website and see what I can find on there!

  3. I will need to share your post with my daughter! She and her husband just bought their first home and she loves the farmhouse look, but money is tight to decorate as she would like.

    I would assume Gordmans has online shopping? I've never heard of that store around these parts. :-)

    Thanks for sharing!
