DIY FARMHOUSE DECOR | 10 EASY + BUDGET FRIENDLY DOLLAR TREE FARMHOUSE HOME DECOR CRAFT IDEAS 2020
hey friends and welcome to coffee with my sunshine I am so glad you decided to stop in today because this video is actually going to be a giant playlist that I put together of my most favorite

farmhouse

DIYs that we've done together and if you find that you like this one be sure to come back because this is only part one of my favorite

farmhouse

DIYs that we've done there will be a part two coming up probably next weekend so if you're ready to get

craft

ing let's get started so if you would like to see how I made this Lantern out of 4 picture frames from the

Dollar

Tree

please keep watching you'll need to start out with 4 5 by 7 picture frames I got front mine from the

Dollar

Tree

and they worked awesome wouldn't stir sticks I ended up using skewer rods because I didn't have anything else but I suggest the wooden stir sticks because they're flat and you'll see why chalk paint a hot glue gun to eight inch by seven and a quarter by 1 inch wood blocks and you can go to

Home

Depot super cheap and they will cut them for you to the size that you need one six inch by five and a half by one inch block and one a five and a half by four inch by one inch block you'll also need two inch copper fitting which I got mine at my local hardware store for 25 cents and they will cut that also for you and a small piece of thick rope you can get that at

Home

Depot or Lowe's or whatever and they will also cut that for you all right we're gonna start by...

taking out the glass from the picture frames and we're gonna paint them with the chalk paint then while those are drying we're going to paint the wooden stir sticks in my case I use the skewer sticks and I just took a napkin because I find it easier than a paintbrush and just rubbed it up and down the skewer stick then while those are drying you paint the wooden blacks all four of them and you don't need to paint the bottoms because those are just going to be glued together or it's just going to be at the bottom of the lantern I actually got this idea online from a picture I saw on hgtv's website from a while back and I will try and link that in the description box so you can see step by step instructions you after everything's dried you're going to grab the frames again flip them upside down grab the wooden stir sticks and we're going to glue them to look like window panes I think that's what they're called and then as soon as you get those stuck in you're going to grab the glass and run a bead of hot glue around the edges of the frame and pop the glass in I kept the little tabs on the back of the frame just for extra hold on the glass because I didn't want it to just be the hot glue holding it in but you can do either way after you have all the glass back in you're going to glue the edges of the frames together to make a box or square or the lantern shape I did it and then realized I did it wrong so...

that's why you see some of the paint missing on the edges so I'm just redoing it so that it's even on all sides then you're going to glue the whole piece the lantern sides to the base which is the woodblock that is eight inch by seven and a quarter you're going to glue that on top and then you're going to take the the other three remaining blocks glue those together from largest to smallest and then you're going to take the the copper fitting and the rope and this we didn't do on camera because I forgot to turn it on but you just feed it feed the Rope through the copper fitting and we put a little bit of hot glue in there just so it would hold because it's gonna kind of be your handle then you just glue the rope and copper fitting on top of the smallest black and then you're pretty much done you can fill the lantern with whatever you want I chose to go with succulents and I think it's super pretty and really a

and girly with the copper fitting I just I like that little touch so with these giant playlists you will see that I actually took the original videos and combined them all together so you will see different backgrounds and different music and lighting so I apologize if there are some that are loud with the music or quiet or whatever but I thought it would be super fun to have all these

farmhouse

DIYs that you guys seem to really like all together in one place you for the first one we're going to start off...

with two of the eight by ten

dollar

tree

frames and we're going to pop out the insides including the glass and I they didn't have black frames at the

Dollar

Tree

that I was at so I just got the gold ones and I thought I would use a little bit of chalkboard paint to paint over and it took two coats and some of the gold still showed through but I was fine with that because I didn't want it to be perfect so then in one of the frames you're going to want to remove those little tabs that hold the glass in and for this I used a good amount of e6000 glue just to because I was going to put the glass back in because we're gonna need that for later and then I used a little bit of hot glue as well and then put another layer on top of that but be careful with the amount of glue that you put on because you don't want it to squish out beyond the the frame because you don't want to see it from the top and then we're going to add the second sheet of glass on top of that just so it's a little bit sturdier and this rope this nautical rope is also from the

Dollar

Tree

and I had an idea of how I wanted it to look so I started to glue that but as I did I noticed that the sides of the rope where I was looping it was going to be a lot thicker than the middle so I didn't think that was going to work out so I took it apart and then started over and just started wrapping it around the edges in kind of like a square so because the top part of this tray that...
we're going to add the one with the glass sits a little bit above the rope there's going to be a gap so you could add things like little pieces of greenery or shells or maybe even a picture or a Seine or something that it would be really cute if you could do that but I'm just going to leave mine plain and then just glue the second frame on top of this with a good amount of e6000 and hot glue now I had already had these handles from my father-in-law but you could get some at probably your local hardware store or

Home

Depot if you have a Habitat for Humanity around I know they usually have like a bin full and they're older like an older style like these are and this tray I wasn't going to necessarily be carrying around by the handles so I just used glue and attached them and I really love how this turned out I like that the frame is kind of rustic II looking and black and like I said some of the gold shows through which I think kind of goes with the look that I was going for but I am I really like how the Rope looks underneath the glass I think it's kind of cool so for the second tray I just got two of the pizza pans from the

Dollar

Tree

and I'm going to take them and put one upside down and then put a bunch like a good amount of e6000 glue on top of that one flip that the other one on top of it and then you're gonna want to press down really good and I had set some really heavy things on top of it for quite a while I think it says it needs 24...
hours to dry and I forgot to film the part where I took some wax paper and set it inside the circle pizza pan and traced right around the inside edge because we're gonna need that for the faux wood pieces and this is actually just vinyl plank flooring underneath here just two strips of it which is really really cheap you can get it at Lowe's or whatever and it's already sticky on the bottom or you could go ahead and just use the what is it called the contact paper stuff that you can get at

Dollar

Tree

or any of your

craft

stores that look like wood or whatever texture you would like on the bottom of your tray so my husband is helping me out here cuz I hate using exact toes and he's taking the outline that I traced under the wax paper and cutting through to the vinyl plank flooring and then we're just going to test fit it here and make sure it fits pretty good and it doesn't need to be perfect because I'm going to put a twine edging right around the edge and then I thought it would look really cool with a big chunky nautical rope around it so I am testing that out too so I know where to cut it and these are another set of handles that my father-in-law had and I'm not sure why they're green but I'm gonna leave them green for now just to see if I like them if not I'll probably paint on with a white chalk paint and again my husband is helping me out here and just like the other tray if you don't care to carry it around by the...
handles you can just go ahead and glue them with the e6000 and hot glue just for looks or if you do want to carry it around you're gonna want to drill them like this and you could probably just use screws but my husband's going to drill holes and then we're going to use I don't know if it's a rivet gun or whatever but we're gonna use the pop rivets to hold it on so I borrowed this hot glue gun from my husband's work and I didn't realize it was so much hotter than mine gets and I actually blistered my finger right here so after that I was a little bit glue gun shy so my husband was helping me out here by holding the rope while I glued it in and then after you get it hot glued in I just flipped it over just for extra I guess staying power I added some of the e6000 kind of in the cracks of the rope and the pizza pan and just to cover up any jaggedy edges that we may have had from cutting the vinyl plank flooring I'm just gonna take some of this twine and glue it in as a little border so I'm actually really happy with how this turned out because just taking some strange items and putting them together I guess to make a tray I think I think it's really cute and I love how this final plank flooring actually looks like wood the Rope just kind of gives it a little bit of

farmhouse

nautical feel I guess and this these flooring pieces which i think is awesome they're actually waterproof so you could set you know like glasses of water or...
whatever on here and not worry about it if they spilled thank you so much for watching and I hope you really enjoyed these two DIY trays and if you have any suggestions or

Dollar

Tree

and also the frame I got from the

Dollar

Tree

so we're just gonna pop out the glass and then we're going to distress the frame and I'm just using chalk paint mixed in with a little bit of a brown acrylic paint we're gonna do the white first and then we're gonna go in and add a little bit of the brown just to make it look a little bit distress then I did with the placemat was take the the insert that came inside the frame and I measured that you know kind of like centered it on the placement where I wanted it to be and then just traced it and then cut it out so it fit the frame and I went back in with a little bit more of the brown paint just to add some more antiquing or

farmhouse

look to it so I think the sign turned out super cute it looks really

farmhouse

fish and it was really

easy

to do and it...
only costs two

dollar

s for the frame and in the placement and then I already had the chalk paint so I think it was super cute super

easy

and really affordable next all you need is a palette and my husband and I just cut down the palette to the size that I wanted and usually you can get palettes from grocery stores or like a hardware store you just need to ask them and usually they'll give them to you for free so for this after we cut down the palette I just took some of the white chalk paint and gave it a good coating I didn't want to make it completely white I wanted it to have the distressed look to it so I just I did it kind of light after the chalk paint was dry I just took the galvanized bucket that I got from the

Dollar

Tree

and I tapped in a nail just to start a hole into the bucket so that the screw wasn't sliding around when I was trying to drill it in and then we just drilled a screw into the bucket and onto the palette and I centered it so that I could change it you know so that it was so that it was taller if I wanted it to be if I wanted to use you know taller flowers or I could turn it so that it was shorter depending on you know what shelf or I wanted to put it on or whatever so I just left a little bit of wiggle room with the screw well I hope you like these projects as much as I did they were super simple and

easy

on the

budget

and I just think they look really really cute and you can put them on a shelf or a counter or hang them you could put a...
little hanger on the back of the the pallet and you could hang it on a wall if you wanted you and if you are new here and it is your first time coming by I would love for you to consider subscribing and joining my YouTube family we have a lot of fun over here on this channel so if you do subscribe don't forget to hit the bell that way you are notified of any videos or anything that I put out there so we're going to start first with this basket and I've been eyeballing these I've seen them online and on Pinterest and stuff they have like the stripes at the bottom so we're gonna start by taping off this basket and I got this at the goodwill quite a while ago and I think it was only $0.99 so I don't feel bad trying to change it up a little bit to match our our

home

decor

in our house so I'm just going to mask off where I'm going to be putting the stain right now I'm just taking a little bit of chalk paint and water that I mixed up because I don't want it a solid white I just kind of want to give it a whitewash look and I'm gonna go in between where I taped and then after that stri you can remove the tape and where the tape was if you want to add a little bit more color or you could leave it like this this is actually really pretty too you can add stain where you had the tape and that's what I'm going to do and if you wait till it's dry you can go ahead and tape where the where you would paint it at white but I'm just...
going to freehand it and hopefully I don't make a big mess I'm using just an old sock because I find I have better control with stain instead of using a brush and also wear gloves or you're just gonna have stained fingers for days and I ended up adding another stripe of dark stain on top of that white after I looked at it with plant in it and I just I think it thought it needed just a little bit more but right now I'm taking some of this rose gold acrylic paint just to give it a little bit of a I guess like a sheen and rose gold look on top of the stain it's not really dramatic or anything it's just a little bit of a subtle sheen and then on to the next project and it's going to be these books I got these books at our local bookstore it's kind of one of those used bookstores that you take books to and you get credit for him and stuff but she had a

dollar

day going on so I got these books for like a

dollar

so I didn't mind changing those up as well so I'm taking a little bit of chalk paint and giving it a good coating not completely just like anything

farmhouse

that I do I don't want a solid look I just kind of want it to be used in rustic looking same with this book I got this at the same book store like I said I'm not going to quote it completely I want it to look used and I'm gonna set those up to dry and then I I'm going to use this old newspaper that I got my husband and my son actually went with me to a couple...
garage sales one day and I found these really old newspapers so I thought it would be fun to just get some of those he but he gave them to me for free so I thought I could find some cool scenes or whatever in there and that's what this is I'm just cutting up the same into two pieces and I'm going to be Mod Podge in it on to the binding of the book but first I'm going to spray it with some water which was an awesome tip from you guys from some of the Mod Podge projects that I've done in the past and I'm also going to rough up the edges a little bit just so it looks worn and the water helps do that too so it just kind of peels off and then I'm gonna add a little bit of Mod Podge to the book and Mod Podge to the back of the newspaper clipping and once it dries you won't be able to see the the writing from the back of the clipping and on to the next one I'm just going to do the same thing that I did on the last one and like I said you won't see that writing on the back once it dries and then for the next project we're just going to take this this little whole wire rack thing from the

Dollar

Tree

and I'm going to spray paint it black I wanted it matte black originally but I couldn't find my spray paint so we're just gonna go with this lacquer and then as that dries that was like the most simple DIY ever but I wanted it black so I thought I would show you and this clipping is also from that same newspaper and my husband and...
son are really into old cars so I thought this was go really well with you know our

decor

and I'm going to use the same technique as I did with the other newspaper clippings and just kind of rub rough up the edges a little bit and I tried to use paper towel to do it but it wasn't working as well so I just ended up using my nail and just started peeling you know little pieces off here and there I just wanted more of a warned edge look than just you know this straight across from cutting it and then after that I'm gonna take some more Mod Podge and put it on to the jar it's actually a growler and I liked that it was a dark one I thought that just added to to the old look of it and then I'm going to put some Mod Podge on the back of the newspaper clipping again and I had sprayed the back with water like you guys had told me last time and it works so much better cuz you can slide it around and put it into place before it decides to stick and then just rub it down make sure there's no bubbles or anything in there and I did end up deciding to put Mod Podge on the outside just so I could preserve the picture and I think it actually looks really cool I ended up putting it on our little bar area you and here it is all finished with the books and the little tray thing that I spray-painted I think they look really cute in

farmhouse

ish my husband really liked the jar and this is actually how I'm going to have it in our sunroom I'm just going to use...
that little tray probably for the remote control here's the basket one way you can use it in the bathroom for this a toilet paper or you can use it like this in our entryway for a plant this is all you're going to need for this shiplap

home

sign you're going to need these pieces of wood from

Home

Depot or Lowe's wherever you get your wood from they were ninety-six cents apiece and they were six foot long and you can get them cut at

Home

Depot then you're going to need a frame I got this frame from Goodwill and originally I was going to paint paint the frame but you'll see that I did not a an outdoor rug from

Dollar

Tree

I picked up this welcome sign but then fell in love with this

home

sign and that's what we're going to use for the sign so all I'm doing here is pulling out the staples in the back that'll hold the picture in because sadly we are going to paint over the ducks so I apologize if anybody likes the original picture but I need it for the sign they are cute little ducks or swans but they're just not my style so you just want to use the original piece that was in the frame for the size and then you're just gonna measure out you can either do them the shiplap all the way across or I took a couple pieces and cut them smaller just so they could have like a staggered look but I didn't do them do that with all of them and my handy husband was so sweet and cut these pieces for me you can use a handsaw too but this was...
just easier and now I just took a little bit of chalk paint or you can use acrylic paint it doesn't really matter just to cover up the picture because some of the shiplap might not line up perfectly there might be a little gap so you just don't want the background picture to show through then you're gonna want to line up the pieces that you cut just to make sure they are the same size because I had a little bit of trouble when I tried to put the frame over the board it didn't quite fit so I had to just adjust the sizes on a couple of them and here's some more paint we're just going to paint over the boards and I kind of like looking back I kind of like the raw wood look so I might do another sign like this just for fun and leave the wood the the natural color because I don't know I kind of like it next we're just going to take the rug from the

Dollar

Tree

and start cutting it out and it's really simple because it's it's really flimsy so it's not like you need super heavy-duty scissors I'm sure you could probably use an exacto knife on this too you and to get into the little like where the those are in the e and the curly part of the H I just folded the fabric and cut them kind of like they taught us when we were in elementary this part you can use any color you want I chose to go with a black acrylic paint and I didn't really have a perfect way to apply it I just took a paintbrush and I was swiping it like you...
would a regular paintbrush sometimes I was dabbing it but I will warn you when you're dabbing I had some spots where it was a little bit more of like the solid black than the rest of it because it got in between the lines because it is you know it is the floor mat so it's got those lines in it and it might might be easier to just spray-paint it so then the next step you're just going to want to glue down the pieces onto the backing of the frame I used a little bit of wood glue and hot glue the hot glue is more to hold it in place right then and then the wood glue you know would dry and hold it in place and make sure the edges of the wood line up almost perfectly if not perfectly with the edges of the frame insert just so that it's easier to put into the wood part of the frame so I have a question for you I never know on doing these DIYs say for instance with these wood pieces do you want me to do you want to see me doing the whole thing gluing every piece down or would you rather I just get to the point and show a couple of them and then move on to the next step because I want it to be helpful and show you how I did it but I don't want it to be annoying to where it's just like okay come on come on move along then you're just going to want to position the word how you want it unto the shiplap make sure it's exactly how you want it because you're going to just kind of mark some of the edges so that when you bring the the word in after...
spraying it with the adhesive spray like you might be able to use hot glue on this but we used adhesive spray anyway and with that stuff you spray it and you put it down almost immediately because you don't want it to dry so that's why I'm marking all these spots so we can do it quickly and my husband helped me on this one as well just so that we could move faster and here it is all finished so I got the idea for this sign from when I saw at Kirkland it wasn't done with a mat or anything but I just thought this might be an

easy

way to make a shiplap sign so let me know what you guys think you today's DIY is going to be how I made this barn door from scratch so all you're going to need for this is just some pieces of wood here are the measurements and some wood glue and clamps to hold them together and a piece of sandpaper and the only reason I wanted to sand the edges of this is because I wanted it to have a little bit of a beveled edge when I glued them together I didn't want them to look like a solid piece of wood I'll show you what I mean in a minute but I also kind of rounded out the edges on the corners so here I'm just showing you the difference between the sanded edges that give it the beveled look compared to not sanding them and it kind of looking like just one solid sheet of wood and I thought I would show you how to make this barn door from scratch because a couple of videos ago that I did I showed a technique on how to paint...
a barn door paint a

farmhouse

style and the barn door I got was from Michaels and by the time the video went up they were sold out so I wanted people to have the chance to have a barn door so that's why I wanted to make my own and here are the measurements for the smaller pieces that go on the top of the larger pieces and that creates the zigzag so for the zigzag on the top you're just going to take the smaller piece of wood which is two inches wide line it up with the top and bottom edge of the door draw a line that way you know where to place the smaller pieces of wood on top of the larger piece because you're just going to be gluing them on and clamping them so you want to know where to place them once you get the glue on and I'm just taking a little bit of wood glue and smearing it with my finger because I don't want a lot to squirt out and I'm just going to glue them together and then clamp them and I didn't have a big enough clamp to go all the way across all four boards so that's why I'm doing it this way I'm just gluing these together making sure they're all lined up then putting the zigzag on top with more wood glue and then I'm going to clamp those down which will in turn clamp the bigger pieces together and here's what mine looks like just a whole bunch of clamps and I thought it would be funny to show you the behind-the-scenes picture of all the clamps we were trying to use because not all of them fit they...
didn't have a big enough mouth on them so this is the angled piece that's kind of weird my husband cut this for me to figure this out you could you could take the piece before it's cut and lay it across the two that you already glued down and draw a line so that you get the correct angle and then cut that and I put you I put the measurements that we used in the beginning and this is what I was saying I didn't want the glue to squish out which it obviously did and I didn't notice but that's really hard to stain it you can go ahead and try and sand it off once it's dried that's it just it gets really really hard but you can't stain over the glue it won't look right so try and wipe off any excess glue once you glue it down you can just do that with a wet rag and then I'm just going to do the same thing with this little zigzag piece I'm just going to glue it and clamp it down and this is the handle I already had a handle on hand it's really old that's why it's kind of crooked but I didn't care it's a barn door it's supposed to look rustic so I went ahead and attached the handle and I'll put this screwdriver in the description box if you guys want one they are so helpful with these kind of projects in all I had with silver screws so I'm just going to take a sharpie and color them in so they kind of blend in with the handle and here it is all finished I'm not going to show how I stained it or...
painted or anything because I will link the video that I showed that previously I will link that up above but I think it turned out beautifully it's not perfect but here it is next to the barn door that I bought from Michaels and that's the one that I did the distressing and painting on like I said I will link that video above alright guys well we are wrapping up the end of this first playlist so for anybody who is still here with me let me know in the comments below which one was your favorite also I hope you found some

ideas
