American Farmhouse Style
Meet Lana Stenner, farmhouse personality and owner of a working farm.
Lana Stenner is a wife, mom of five and a blogger who talks about hobby farming and farmhouse décor. She lives on a working farmstead in Missouri with goats, sheep, bees, chickens, ducks, turkey and a goose named Genevieve. She also lives in a 120-year-old farmhouse. AFS: Howdidyougetstartedwiththe onlinefarmhousecommunity? Lana: We moved to the Grace-Filled Homestead over 20 years ago. A couple of years ago I started an Instagram account and have enjoyed the inspiration of others in their farmhouse renovations. AFS: What’syourfavoriteroomin yourhouseandwhy? Lana: My favorite space in the house is our kitchen. It was an addition that we added and built ourselves from scratch, with reclaimed lumber, hand poured concrete counters and an apothecary pantry shelf. My favorite thing about it is the people that gather there around the farm table. I also love the kids in the farm sink— both humans and goats. AFS: Doyouhaveanyupcoming projectsyou’reexcitedabout? Lana: Yes, our book, TheGrace-Filled Homestead–LessonsILearned aboutFaithFamilyandtheFarm is coming out in September. This book is packed with beautiful farmhouse scenes, heartwarming stories, recipes and more. It’s on presale right now on Amazon. AFS: What’syourtoptipforattainable farmhousestyle? Lana: We love reclaimed and repurposed materials. Our bathroom vanity is an old dresser, and our greenhouse was built from discarded windows and French doors. Saving money by finding free or cheap materials keeps the budget in check and allows you to splurge on other items.
