Frugal Turned Fancy

Twin sisters take their life-long love for farmhouse style to the next level in their Idaho homes and business.


“Out here in Idaho, the East Coast-style inluences stand out,” says homeowner Elizabeth Olsen. Since she couldn’t ind her ideal home design in Idaho, she had this home custom built, but she and her family are completely happy with the results.

What’s better than a twin sister? A twin sister who shares your love for farmhouse style, of course. Idaho natives Elizabeth Olsen and Margaret Nash have made a business out of transforming secondhand finds into treasured pieces. Having grown up as two of nine children on their family dairy farm, Elizabeth and Margaret learned the value of resourceful home décor habits when they were children. Now as adults, they find inspiration in their mother’s money-saving habit of furnishing their childhood home with thrifted finds. The sisters blog about upcycling furniture on their blog, Fancy Farmgirls, and host a biannual barn sale out of Elizabeth’s home, where they sell used furniture pieces they’ve personally transformed.

As twin sisters and business partners, Margaret (left) and Elizabeth (right) have made a career out of their creative passions of “making homes beautiful with secondhand items.” They host their biannual barn sale out of the barn attached to Elizabeth’s home. With their Idaho-based and farmhouse-inspired work, they keep their interests happily close to home.
