Decorating your kitchen can go beyond just the aesthetics of a charming country space and also provide welcome organization. If you're looking to corral some of your clutter while maintaining a kitchen that's attractive, consider some of these helpful solutions.
Whether it's decluttering your kitchen counter or making the best use of wall space, there are plenty of DIY projects you can pull together in no time that have that gorgeous farmhouse chic style.
1. Toboggan organizer
Who would ever think of repurposing an old toboggan to organize mail and hold keys? Instructables has all the details for this unique DIY project, which even includes a small chalkboard to write notes and shopping list items.
2. Double duty storage
If you're short on cabinet space for muffin tins and cookie sheets, consider storing them in a magazine rack. A little distressed paint and stencil project, like this one seen at CookiesCraftsandChaos, makes an ideal caddy for pans.
3. Chicken feeder caddy
An old metal chicken feeder makes an amazingly cute organizer for small items but also adds to your farmhouse decor in a huge way. This feeder, seen at Hubpages, holds a variety of spices, oils, and more, ready to be placed on a countertop or table.
4. Hanging organizer
Making use of hooks in an interesting way can be both functional and beautiful, like this hanging organizer seen at StoneGableBlog. Not only can measuring cups or coffee mugs be displayed here, but a metal organizer can offer a contrasting feature.
5. Farmhouse style coffee station
An old window gets new purpose with this fun coffee station idea seen at RefreshRestyle, as the backdrop for your favorite morning beverage. Accessorize the area with a tiered galvanized steel rack, fun creamers and, of course, a small coffee maker and mugs.
6. Mini ladder towel rack
This inexpensive (less than $5!) and super simple project, seen at CherishedBliss, can be easily cut, assembled, and painted with a distressed look to fit your charming kitchen. Hang dish towels or napkins for a beautiful display.
7. Hanging crates
Make efficient use of wall space by hanging a series of crates that can hold small items, placemats, and other decorative elements, like these seen at DrivenbyDecor.
8. Vintage toolbox
Use a vintage toolbox to hold odds and ends, table settings or flowers as a decorative piece, like this project seen at WillowHillFarmGirl. A rustic old box like this adds so much charm and flair, while serving as an excellent storage unit.
9. Chic message board
This DIY project will organize family schedules and messages perfectly in your farmhouse kitchen. In a few easy steps that require wood, chicken wire and clips, SeekingLavenderLane shows you how to quickly pull this together.
10. Vintage cheese grater organizer
This old cheese grater gets new life when you think outside the box and turn things upside down! With an easy project from HomeRoad, a grater is attached to a piece of reclaimed wood and a chain is added to hang it on the wall. Voila!
