With a touch of chalk paint, this wife and mother creates farmhouse style with vintage finds

Wife, mother and self-proclaimed chippy paint aficionado, Debra shares her charming family cottage on her Instagram account, Cottage of Three. She has farmhouse style down to a T, revamping her vintage finds along the way in white Annie Sloan chalk paint.
Throughout, Debra loves a neutral color palette so she can add color with seasonal decor and swap in her latest antique treasures.

A beautiful white rug from Orian Rugs offers a grounding presence in the living room, which features white slip-covered seating and a trunk-turned end table from Ikea.
The showstopper in the room, however, is Dana's DIY vintage hearth, which features a shiplap background and a roomy mantel to display recent antique finds.
Debra made over her kitchen with a fresh coat of white paint, hidden hinges and a subway tile backsplash. The resulting space offers a clean background for favorite seasonal treasures, such as a springtime-ready eucalyptus wreath on her custom range hood.
Simple prints found at Hobby Lobby offer a touch of artwork atop white shiplap siding in the dining area. A vintage farmhouse table from Joss and Main offers the perfect place to gather as a family. Debra loves the neutral colors that boast flexibility for future decor additions.
Debra keeps the master bedroom in a neutral color palette so she can change it with seasonal decor and throw pillows, such as this fall-themed bolster. The midcentury bed and dresser are accompanied by an antique leaf-adorned light fixture.
Debra's daughter's room highlights vintage finds that the duo discovered while "junk hunting" together. Annie Sloan chalk paint gives the pieces fresh life in a crisp, distressed white.
The master bathroom features clean white herringbone tile, a crisp white vanity and a romantic ruffled shower curtain. Debra loves to update the space with antique finds, such as this shutter sporting a charmingly chippy paint job.
