A question we seem to get often is how we got started, so that brings us to the beginning of Farmhouse Chic….
I started this sweet little blog of mine in 2010! Long before the days of Pinterest or before anyone knew who Chip & Jojo were! It was my little spot where I could share my daily inspirations! It was like my own clip board that I was sharing with anyone willing to look & listen! As time went on & life happened, we purchased our first home.

I ended up getting a divorce & really questioned if this was going to be the end of Farmhouse Chic.

He enjoyed wood-working & was the brains behind my visions! We did our first show together in Fall of 2016. Since then, we have done almost a dozen shows together & keep working hard to make Farmhouse Chic better each time!

The mere thoughts of them wanting to shop our items from a store was beyond exciting! That brought us to seriously considering the thoughts.
