12 farmhouse style DIYs to bring out your inner Joanna Gaines

Cozy, comfy, and chic... farmhouse style decor somehow manages to be all three. The style is as American as apple pie, and although it was developed by people living on farms, it can now be part of your home no matter where you live!
Instead of spending a ton of money to fill your home with the perfect farmhouse furnishings, pick your favorite project from the list below and start making them yourself!
