Rustic Fall Dining Room

A Rustic Fall Dining Room

Happy Wednesday, I hope you are all having a great week!  It’s been a busy one over here – a lot of little projects going on in preparation for the guests we will be hosting for Thanksgiving.  I know it’s still a month away, but these things have a way of creeping up on you, if you’re not prepared.  One project that my husband and I are nearly done with, is our dining room makeover, ”take two”.  I’m calling it “take two”  because, if you’ve been reading awhile, you know that back in June I posted my “dining room reveal” here on the blog, and the room looked very different than it does now (you can check out that post here). Believe me, I had no intention of changing this room, especially so soon after finishing it, but the furniture was just too big for the space, and my very patient husband was tired of feeling cramped and uncomfortable in this space.  So, long story short, we sold the old dining set and pieced together this new (to us) one, that fits our space much better and we’ve been slowly turning this into a rustic fall dining room!

We kept the paint color the same, since we love the color and the room was recently painted, focusing our attention on changing out the furnishings and wall art. The table is an antique that we found for sale on Craigslist, and the chairs are reproductions from a local  furniture store. The silver tray gallery wall no longer seemed to suit the space, so it came down. I’m still looking for artwork for the walls; I just haven’t found anything I really love, yet.

I actually wanted a tall china cabinet with open shelving for this wall,but I haven’t been able to find “the one”. So until I do, this sideboard will remain.

 My husband, Johnny, and I made the chalkboard (tutorial coming soon!) with chalk art that was replicated from an image from this Etsy print, by my super talented and artistic daughter :)

 Then came the fun part; accessorizing for the season! The table centerpiece is an old toolbox I brought home from my junkin’ trip at my Dad’s house last Spring. I filled it with faux hydrangeas and layered it on top of a burlap runner. White place settings, squash, and  pumpkins add some fall festiveness.

The sideboard also got fall-i-fied with a small platter of pumpkins, some apples, and a bit of fresh foliage.

I love the rustic, cozy feel of this room; but mostly I love that our family is now comfortable when we’re all gathered around the table for a meal, a board-game, or evening homework sessions. 

I hope you all enjoyed our rustic Fall dining room! Do you have a favorite “Fall” space?  I’d love to hear about it! Please leave me a comment, or connect with me on Facebook or Instagram. 

Have a great day!
