Unique and Rustic Kitchen Door Handles for a Farmhouse Look

You don’t need any money to create these beautiful rustic kitchen door handles! In fact, you can probably find them in your own backyard.

Well hello, my lovely readers! Isn’t it a beautiful day? A beautiful day for more… beautiful branches.

What? You thought I’d run out of ideas on how to use branches in my home? Oh, honey. That’s not going to happen any time soon! I have A LOT of branches in my backyard, and an itty-bitty decorating budget. πŸ˜‰

Plus, I would pick these rustic kitchen door handles over just about any metal handles and knobs that you could toss my way. There’s just something so awesomely amazing about using nature in your home as well as being ridiculously cost efficient.

Not to mention, you could make (or find) them in any size you could possibly think up. Small, large, short, thick, crooked, and also in a variety of colors depending on your location.

A few days ago I shared my DIY Ladder Light, and now you can really see how nicely the handles collaborate with the ladder can’t you? Just a nice little hint of nature!

I’m not entirely sure what to do for a backsplash to be honest. Originally I was going to do tile, but then I started to lean towards a stencil. Now? I think I need a week to stare and chew on it. The “perfect” fit hasn’t quite hit me yet, but it always does with a little bit of time. πŸ˜‰

The hardest part of this project is removing the old handles. Branches are readily available everywhere I look so no issues with them! Then, just simply cut them down to whatever size you’d like, and screw them into your doors.

And that’s all! Have a wonderful weekend, and see ya next week!
