Stunning Farmhouse Before-and-After Makeovers
There’s something about Southern farmhouses that we just can’t get enough of whether it’s their historic charm, clean lines, or wide front porches. But, when a centuries-old farmhouse is brought back to life without losing an ounce of it’s original integrity—that’s when you really know it’s something special.
The Ho-Hum Farmhouse Porch
This porch had great bones but was a bit bland.

Because the structure was in great shape, all that was needed was some comfortable furniture, a rug to pull the space together, and punchy accessories.
The Dark and Dated Kitchen
The upper and lower dark-stained cabinets made the kitchen feel boxed in.

Now the kitchen is a light-filled space with historic details like beadboard, a farmhouse sink, and brass accents tying the space together.
The Sleepy Stunner
The beautiful lines of this farmhouse weren’t living up to their full potential.

Crisp white paint, an antique-style front door, and porch furniture made for lounging brought the farmhouse exterior to life.
The Dilapidated Texas Farmhouse
This Central Texas farmhouse was purchased as a weekend home, but it was definitely in need of major updates.

The stairs were repositioned and the old rusty roof was upgraded to metal. The homeowners also added a two-story brick chimney and shutters to the upstairs windows.
The Porch with a View
This wide front porch was a blank canvas with great views of the countryside.

A fresh coat of paint, including a traditional light blue ceiling, refreshed the porch. White wicker furniture provides a comfortable spot for taking in the views.
The Living Room with Clunky Details
A strange, sloped wall in the corner and a low-hanging beam make the space disjointed.

Wide-planked shiplap was discovered under the old paneling. A fresh coat of white paint and the warm-hued trim create cozy farmhouse style.
The Steep and Dark Staircase
The staircase didn’t seem to be an original design of the space, but, rather, an afterthought.

The stairs were rebuilt to make them more functional and even included a space for a powder room beneath.
The Big and Cramped Farmhouse Kitchen
This large kitchen still somehow felt cramped.

The kitchen was completely rebuilt, including a 200-square-foot addition from the former mudroom. Now, open shelving give classic farmhouse details.
The Not-So-Master Bath
This small bathroom certainly didn’t feel like a master bath.

Vintage materials vibe with the farmhouse style of the home. Beadboard, hexagonal tile, pedestal sinks, and schoolhouse-inspired lights add charming detail.
The Boring Farmhouse Bedroom
There wasn’t a lot going on in this bedroom.

Fresh paint on the shiplap walls and trim brighten up the space. Simple furniture and a pop of color on the bed are all the room needed to make a major impact.
The Farmhouse-Style Bungalow
This 1920s bungalow needed some love.

When the owner went to renovate the bungalow, he designed it around three ideals that would just as well fit a farmhouse: respect for the land, a passion for horticulture, and a love of Southern architecture.
The Outdated Kitchen
The small kitchen was a 150-square-foot space in a 110-year-old home. The homeowner knew it needed an updated.

Exterior siding that was repurposed to use on the kitchen ceiling and beautiful wood floors shine here. A stunning copper range is an unexpected focal point.
The Tiny Farmhouse Cottage
This tiny cottage was rickety, to say the least.

A solid foundation, a wide front porch, and new entrance completely update the house.
