Today I wanted to share my simple trick I use in every room of my home to add that Primitive Style you see in my home. There are 4 items I always buy when I can find them for a good price!
1. Wood boxes, wood signs, wood furniture.
The older the better and I especially love old wood crates! They are utilitarian. I use them to store my towels and so much more. I love primitive decor that is not only pretty, but useful!
Found Wood Crate
The more rust the better! I buy signs, pitchers, pails, old silverware… The list goes on! You can use old metal in so many ways.

3. Natural Elements
Jute rugs, wicker baskets, faux or even real greenery. I love hanging baskets in clusters on the wall for inexpensive wall art! For these, I paid no more than $1 a basket!

4. White Decor
I can easily incorporate into my decor. My newest obsession is Ironstone! I can thank Marian at Miss Mustard Seed for that. Have you guys seen her collection?! I hung some platters and and some old chippy spindles on this wall in my living room. Again, inexpensive wall art!
The last few items I add are fabrics such as a linen throw or neutral curtains. For a dining room, a unique table runner or place mats. Throw pillows also add great texture to any space. Then I pop in some “found” objects like old books, antique mirrors or maybe some vintage framed paintings. My favorite right now is landscape paintings. Primitive style decor doesn’t have to be expensive. Most of my items are found at garage sales and estate sales. Thrift stores are another great place to find these items!
