Windmill wall decor is just one small part of the farmhouse style of decorating popularized by Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper fame. If you’re looking for some ideas for your own home, you’re in luck.
Windmill decor? Of course, you know Joanna Gaines hand a finger or two in that. It’s probably why it’s become so popular as part of the ranch house style decor movement. This above is a piece of a real windmill, like many that used to dot the rural countrysides. They used to be no more than scrap metal, but now… well, if you see any parts, you might want to grab them. We have one here At Muse Ranch that Mr. Muse took down when we first moved it. It was kind of rickety. Unfortunately, he tells me that it’s a full restoration project some day and not to be used to decorate the house. Drat!
