Farmhouse homes are my favorite style of house, but if I could get a 2nd house, I would love to have either a mountain log cabin, or an urban industrial loft.
I like to come up with ways to integrate the different styles I love into the home I have, so when I spotted a corrugated metal and wood framed mirror at Decor Steals, it reminded me that I still had some corrugated metal left over from our shed-turned-guest room remodel.
I don’t know what it is about corrugated metal that I love so much, I just know my family gets tired of hearing me comment how much I love it every time we pass an old barn with a rusty corrugated roof on it.
I decided to use the metal to add a little industrial vibe in our entryway.
Here’s how I did it…
Combining Rustic and Industrial with Farmhouse Style
I had hung an old mason jar hanging on twill tape inside the pallet wood frame in my entryway and I wanted to keep the jar there – I just wanted to add a piece of the corrugated metal behind it. The rustic wood frame, combined with the corrugated metal, with the mason jar hanging in front gives three looks in one – log cabin + industrial building + farmhouse…
all rolled up in one easy project!
If you’d like to make your own, the tutorial to make the pallet wood frame is here.
Once you have the frame made, measure the inside opening, then cut the sheet metal about an inch larger than the frame opening. That inch margin is where you’ll screw the sheet metal to the back of the frame.
This was a quick and easy way to change out the look of the frame, and I can just as easily remove it if I decide I’d like to add different art in the frame later on.
Hanging the frame on my chalkboard wall adds a little old schoolhouse style into the mix too!
I don’t think you have to get so hung up on one style of decor that you can’t find ways to add other looks you love that compliment each other.
I think this rustic industrial farmhouse frame does just that!
Viya con Dios,
