This is YOUR 21 days to add farmhouse style to your home. 

As a reader of blogs, I’ve only signed up to one challenge.  I will admit the word “CHALLENGE” always frightened me.  I’m challenged enough in day to day activities, so do I want to add more challenges to life??  The challenge I signed up for was to cut stress during the holidays.  Challenged to reduce stress, seemed like an oxymoron.  In the end, I had a delightful collection of tips to reduce holiday stress.  Not so bad.

This is my wish for you during this challenge.  No stress.  Just a collection of easy, creative and inexpensive Farmhouse styled DIY projects.

You can do the project each day when it arrives in your inbox.  Or collect them to do on weekends.  You can plan to make projects along with the kids over a school break.  The projects are great for children with adult supervision.


Remember Create at your own risk.

Some days the project will involve field trips to gather inspiration.  Some projects you can combine with previous projects.  Projects may have various options or add your spin!

Projects take under 30 minutes to complete.



Here’s a video I made to introduce the DIY decorating challenge.

It’s harder than you would think to separate those sheets!!! 🙂

Here’s a list of basic stuff you will need for the 21 farmhouse projects.

    1. Hally, Yes as long as your email stays the same or you update your profile if it does change. I have several people saving them up for vacation time. Each day has a printable of the project too. So you can print them out and keep as a little booklet. Some have variations too. How you enjoy the projects. Thank you so much for following along.
