A Touch of Farmhouse Charm Book Review & Farmhouse Window Trim Update

One of my absolute favorite farmhouse bloggers is Liz Fourez of Love Grows Wild. This woman is so incredibly talented, I often find myself getting lost in her blog for hours–all of her posts have a perfect balance of simplicity and vintage goodness. Liz is actually one that inspired me to start my own blog last year, so I’ve been an admirer of hers for a long time now. Today I’m over the moon excited to be reviewing her much-anticipated book A Touch of Farmhouse Charm, which is full of 70 DIY friendly projects for every room in your house. I actually did one of the projects from the book and you won’t believe the before and after shots I have to share with you today!

This book is bursting with incredible ideas, all of which are sure to add a touch of farmhouse charm to your home. The projects are divided into three categories: beginner, intermediate, and advanced–although most of them don’t require many tools. This book has every room in your home is covered–from the living room and kitchen, to kids’ bedrooms and home office.

As I was flipping through the pages of the book I kept marking things I wanted to try, like a hanging license plate gallery wall, aged metal galvanized bin, and the wooden arrow sign. Seriously, I would love to do every project in this book! The instructions are super easy to follow and the photography is gorgeous.

The project I decided to try first was for farmhouse window trim. I’ve actually been wanting to spruce up our back door and this worked perfectly. Here’s what the door looked liked before:

I’m amazed at the difference! I mean, how can a few simple boards add so much character? This project didn’t cost very much, I’d estimate around $25, and we were able to get it all done in just a few hours. The step-by-step instructions were a breeze to follow and very straightforward. I LOVE it! And of course I want to do this to every door in our house.

A Touch of Farmhouse Charm was just released on Amazon yesterday! This would make an AMAZING Christmas gift–perfect for the DIY-er in your life or maybe even someone that just purchased their first home. Or why not snag a copy for yourself, I promise you will love this book.

Well that’s all for me today my friends! I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Let me know if you have any questions about the book. And I’d love to hear what you think of my new fancy schmancy farmhouse trim above our back door. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Sarah here! Nice to meet you. I’m a mama to three, wife to my high school sweetheart and accidental blogger. We recently moved to our little homestead on ten acres and we're loving the small town life in Colorado. I hope this space can inspire you to create a home you love and enjoy the simple moments the most.

      Hi Gayle! You know what, I actually got that side table off Craigslist–if I remember right it was only $40!
