Simple Farmhouse Mantel + Free Printable

I really wanted to title this post The Easiest Five-Minute Farmhouse Mantel You’ll Ever Do In Your Whole Entire Life, but that felt like a little much so I decided to keep it short and sweet. Really though, this is the most simple farmhouse mantel I’ve ever put together. It was a complete breeze, which is awesome because usually I find mantels to be a total pain in the rear end. I mean you’re trying to get balance, symmetry, and you gotta find things small enough to fit on the mantel in the first place. Maybe I’m just challenged in this area, but I think they’re tricky little monsters. Fortunately this one was super easy, mostly due to my new farmhouse sign I put smack dab in the middle. And I have good news for you! I’m offering this FREE farmhouse printable at the end of my post today. Just because you’re so darn awesome.

I styled this farmhouse sign up with some greenery (from Amazon!) a few old books, and my favorite white wood candleholders. Boom. That’s about as easy as it gets folks. But I seriously love this simple look.

Ok, here’s the scoop on that awesome farmhouse sign. I found this on the cutest little Etsy shop, The Happy Pioneer, and the owner Rebecca was kind enough to offer this sign completely FREE to my lovely readers. Seriously, how darn sweet is that? From now on I’m giving this to my new email subscribers, so just sign up in the box below and you’ll get an email with your free copy. Then go put it in a purdy frame and style it up somewhere in your home!

Oh and by the way, if you’re already subscribed to the LVN newsletter, you should have an email sitting in your inbox with this baby inside and ready to download!

    Thank you for the Farm sign, I’ve already printed it, framed it and put it on display. It’s the best gift I’ve ever gotten from a blogger, actually, the only gift I’ve ever gotten on a blog. Thanks Sarah for your generosity. You rocked the mantel! I love your blog and your sincerity.

      That’s odd! Did you sign up since Thursday afternoon? That’s when I sent it out to current subscribers. If so just leave your email and I’ll send you one!

    Hi Sarah! Thank you for the farmhouse sign. When I printed it, it printed out to large for the paper size. I’m wondering if you could resend me the link, so I can try and reprint it. Thanks!

      Hmm, that’s odd. If you print it on standard size paper it should fit in an 8×10 frame with just a little bit of trimming. I can try resending you another copy if needed, just leave me a good email address for you Jen!

    I just love your Blog posts and soooo much interesting design ideas that are elegant and simple to put together. So many creative looks that are eye catching and attractive. Thank you very much Sarah for the beautiful printable free gift. I am subscribed for your Email posts, but did not receive the printable. So I re- Subscribed and got it. I was not aware that you also had a news letter as well. So I signed up for it. Either that or resigned up again for your Blog again- but was already:) Thanks again Sarah for your thoughtfulness on sharing the printable. Ooooh and where did you get that lovely frame?

I have missed you and had to go to the internet to get today’s post. I don’t want to miss a day of sweet little Sarah so could you reconnect me. Thanks so much.
