10 Affordable Farmhouse Style Ceiling Fans

Holy smokes, I feel like I have sooooooo much to talk to you guys about this week–particularly our paint situation. If you watch my stories over on Instagram you probably already know what’s happening, but long story short we’re getting our living room and front room re-painted today. Yes, as in painted AGAIN. For a second time in a week. Crazy, I know. It’s been an interesting ordeal and I think I’ll just write a separate post to explain what’s been going. But thank goodness it all seems to be working out, so I can’t complain. I’ll share more about that soon, but today I’ve rounded up 10 affordable farmhouse style ceiling fans for you guys! I was actually chatting on IG stories yesterday about not having much to share for Friday Favorites this week, so I asked if anyone would be interested in seeing a shopping post about affordable ceiling fans. I was shocked at how many of you enthusiastically said YES, so here I am! I also got lots of other fabulous suggestions for shopping roundups, so I made sure to take notes. You guys have some great ideas. Anyway, I have scoured the world wide web to come up with ten awesome ceiling fans that are all reasonably priced. I hope this helps if you’re looking to update any old fans in your home!

So I have to admit, I haven’t done a lot of ceiling fan shopping in my day (even though I totally need to update all of ours) and I had no clue how pricey they can get. Really, many of the fans I found were over $500, which is pure hogwash if you ask me. I personally can’t justify that kind of price tag and I would feel absolutely ridiculous including any of those expensive fans in a shopping roundup for you guys. My motto is I’ll never put something in a roundup that I wouldn’t actually buy myself. And since I’m pretty darn frugal AND super picky, it really limits what I choose for these shopping posts. But I do hope this helps if you’re looking to update the ceiling fans in your home without breaking the bank. I actually love all of these options and I think any of them would look great in a living room, bedroom, playroom, basement, etc. My favorites are number one and number five.

Well that’s it for me today guys. Thanks a bunch for stopping by the blog, I truly appreciate it. Now go have a fabulous weekend and I’ll see you back here soon! xoxo

    We purchased no.5 and it is a great quality fan and so easy to hang. It changed the look of our room from prissy (we have a ranch style home that had all frilly fixtures from the 60s) to more rustic and casual. Please not it is not a flush mount but it still worked well with an 8 ft. Ceiling. Thanks for all you do and we love your blog and stories!

    I think the only farmhouse style fan is the Hunter Original.

    Sarah, why don’t you Dobbins a diy on updating your ceiling fan. After reading your blog and drooling over these farmhouse ceiling fans, I knew my husband would never agree on replacing our perfectly good fans. Soooo, I started thinking about a diy. So we took all the blades off and painted the outdated brass base and all. I couldn’t decided on a flat black or white. But I went with the white. Painted all the blades a white too. Then replaced the ugly glass globes in the 3 lights and found black cages instead. End result looked like your fan #6, except it’s white. And the price? About $20! I don’t know how to do links but Amazon sold these black light cages in a 4 pack for $18! Just another (and cheaper) alternative for those of us who already have ceiling fans. Thanks for listening. Btw, I LOVE you blog and look forward to it every day. God bless. Jody

  7. Love these… I agree, ceiling fans are quite pricey! I just did a makeover on mine for a grand total of $30. I’m much more happy with it now. 🙂 Thanks, Sarah!

  • I can’t believe it’s already been three weeks since our trip to the Silobration. 😍😍 I was so glad my husband could go along with me & I love this shot of us—standing in muddy puddles & soaking wet, but happy as can be. I am so blessed to do life with this guy by my side for over 16 years now. 🙏❤️
  • Rise & shine, it’s coffeeeeeee time! ☕️☕️Can you believe Thanksgiving is only two weeks from today? TWO WEEKS. Time to get yo stretchy pants ready!! 🙌🏻 I’d love to know what Thanksgiving traditions you have in your family. I’m looking for new things to do with the kids & I’m curious if you do anything special or unique to celebrate the day?! 🦃
  • You guys told me you love before & after shots, so here’s another one for you. Swipe right to see how I styled our breakfast nook when we first moved in three years ago. This was actually after I painted the walls, they were dark brown before, and I was pretty happy with how it looked. 😬Obviously we have since updated a few things in this space—I added faux shiplap (it was my first big project & I was so proud I did it all by myself!) and then I added a new light fixture, a different table, shelves, etc. .
The thing that strikes me the most with these two photos is the difference in my style. At the time I was struggling to figure out what I liked & how I could make that work with a tight budget. It didn’t happen over night, but slowly things have evolved in this space & it looks totally different today. And if you think about it, that’s kind of the cool thing about life. Nothing we do is ever perfect when we just start out. There are bumps in the road, struggles, growing pains, etc. But as time goes on we (hopefully) evolve to be better than when we began. And even though it’s nice to get to the pretty after photo, especially if you’re impatient like me, it’s also kind of nice to appreciate the journey. Yes, that’s cheesy as heck. But it’s TRUE. I love looking back at these photos of when we first started out because it reminds me of the journey & how hard we’ve worked on our home. It’s still a work in progress,  but I’m grateful for it all!
  • Today was crazy/surreal/awesome all at the same time. I spent the day working on a project that totally took me out of my comfort zone, but it went so well & I’m happy I decided to push myself & do it. (Watch my stories to see what I’ve been up to!) Then when I got home I had this smiling baby waiting for me at the front door. My husband snapped this picture of us & I just love the look on her little face. This girl is attached to my hip all day every day, so she was very happy to be back with mama. 😍😍 Now it’s time for pizza & cozy clothes!! 🙌🏻🙏
  • I’m still a little ways off from jumping into Christmas decor, but I did pick up a pair of these eucalyptus & pinecone wreaths from Target yesterday. I loooooooove them & now I’m getting a teeny tiny itch to add a few more pops of Christmas into this room. BUT I’m going to hold out a little longer. Anyone else still holding onto pumpkins or have you started to deck the halls?!
  • #flashbackfriday to one of my favorite snapshots with my girl. I can’t believe this was almost a year ago 😭😭 This sweet pea is my little BFF & I shared in stories today about how she teaches me to be brave. I hope you watch it if you’re facing something big in your life right now. It’s a simple, yet powerful reminder that fear is choice & you can face anything in life if you simply make the decision to be brave. #goforit #getthatcandygirl
