  1. I love these! There are so many ideas that I want to incorporate into my home to give it the rustic/farmhouse feel that I’ve been searching for. My husband is always bringing home antler sheds that he wants to use in decorations or made into a small antler chandelier, so these ideas would be great to use to incorporate some of them. Thanks for sharing!
