    5 Easy Ways To Create Fixer Upper Style

    5 Easy Ways To Create Fixer Upper Style

    Joanna and Chip Gaines have certainly changed the home renovation game. Their farmhouse, modern rustic style is right on point with our favourite trends and we're constantly inspired by their commitment to excellence (who isn't?!).

    When it comes time to redo your own favourite spaces, the cost and the project ideas can often be overwhelming for the everyday, non-professional home owner. You may not be creating from scratch, and you may not have months to complete the changes. 

    Have no fear! We've put together a list that can help save you the headaches and confusion. Check out our 5 easy tips to creating your own fixer upper style and see just how simple it can be to create your perfect happy place. 

    1. Quote Art 

    You can find almost any quote art nowadays for affordable prices. And if you're feeling crafty and adventurous you can DIY your own. From song lyrics and bible verses, to daily mantras and clever puns, the oversized wall art is your first step to fixer upper interior style. 

    2. Oversized Clocks 

    An oversized clock hung in the entryway or above the mantel in your living room can completely change the space. The industrial style timekeepers are the perfect way to add a touch of vintage charm and fixer upper style to your home, and they continue to be one of Joanna's favourite interior accessories. 

    3. Boxwood Wreaths 

    The rustic, natural charm of preserved boxwood wreaths works year round for any home. They pair perfectly with antique mirrors and vintage window frames, and are a quick and easy way to add a touch of fixer upper style to your home (find O&F handmade boxwood wreaths on Etsy). 

    4. Subway Tile

    Renovating your kitchen can be a long process. Finding the best backsplash, seating and sink can take ages, especially if you're working with your partner or spouse. We all have different styles and if you're doing it yourself, without a professional, knowing what to do can be difficult. Subway tile backsplash is a smart, simple and easy decision you can make right now for a fixer upper style kitchen of your dreams. And you'll want to stick to natural textiles (like our O&F linen tea towels) and green, natural accents. 

    5. Pipe Shelving 

    The industrial chic look of pipe shelving is one of our favourite fixer upper interior accents, and can be used in almost any room of the home. From bathrooms and bedrooms, to entryways and kitchens, it's easy to find affordable designs or create your own pipe shelving. Add a few vintage books and wildflowers and voila! You've got the perfect new wall space.

    O&F Boxwood Wreaths ~ Wedding Décor For All Seasons!

    O&F Boxwood Wreaths ~ Wedding Décor For All Seasons!

    If you love Boxwood wreaths as much as we do, then you’re already in on the secret – they’re not just for the holiday season. Our O&F evergreen leaves are preserved to last up to one year and are easily incorporated into any seasonal décor. 

    With the warmer months on the horizon, and traditional wedding season not far behind, we’ve been exploring all the ways we can incorporate our custom made boxwood wreaths into spring and summer wedding party design.

    From romantic and whimsical chandeliers to alternative bouquets, the wreaths add outdoor charm and unique style to any wedding party, and are an endless source of inspiration.

    Place Settings

    Smaller boxwood wreaths create a simple and classic place setting feature, and are one of our favourite rustic wedding table inspirations. Adding ribbon and name tags are perfect for assigned seating receptions. And you can even use them as a gift for your guests to enjoy all year long.

    Centrepieces

    Our larger boxwood wreaths can be used as centrepieces as well. It’s a great way to bring a touch of the outdoors to a indoor reception, and a simple and chic way to create rustic appeal. Light some candles, incorporate some wild flowers and quickly transform any table into an imaginative fairytale.

    Seating

    From chairs and benches to church pews and barns, boxwood wreaths make the perfect seating accessory. It’s a fun way to dazzle up your space, and once again – a simple and stunning way to add rustic romance to your design.

    Chandeliers

    We just love the idea of using boxwood wreaths as chandeliers. Easily hung with ribbon from just about any foundation, they will convert any farmhouse barn into a fairytale of your dreams. 

    Bouquets

    As an alternative to the traditional flower bouquets for the bridal party, boxwood wreaths make a stunning, chic and creative choice. Simply tie with a ribbon and voila! You’ve got gorgeous “bouquets” that the girls can take home as a keepsake gift.

    Transportation

    Last but not least, you can even add a boxwood wreath to your wedding exit! Large wreaths with your new initials or a wedding message make for fun transportation décor. Whether you’re traveling by car, limo or golf cart (we hope not for the sake of your dress!) – our boxwood wreaths create a touch of rustic romance along the way.
