I’m back today with another great group of bloggers for even more fall home inspiration!
Today is part two of my fall home tour. Yesterday I shared my entryway and living room and today I’m on to the dining room!
I kept the dining room fairly simple. I left my freshly painted corner cabinet mostly the same, with a few fall touches.
I went super simple and inexpensive with my table, too.
I don’t like to spend a ton of money on table linens and decor because we really don’t use it all dressed up on a daily basis. Yes, I’ll admit it. I added this decor for the pictures and it’s all gone now! Don’t worry, the rest of the house is still decorated, but the table is bare! We just don’t use our table this way on a day-to-day basis, so it’s not practical to keep it this way.
Since it doesn’t make sense for me to spend a ton of money on our table decor, I got creative. I used a hemmed drop cloth for my table cloth and a long piece of this cute plaid fabric for the table runner. It adds texture and color to the table without costing a ton of money. I also placed a couple barn wood boards on top of the plaid fabric to add even more texture to the display.
I finished up the table decor with a simple centerpiece. I used another enamel pitcher in the dining room and this time filled it with weeds. Yes, weeds! I was at my in-laws’ house a couple weeks ago and saw these in the field across the dirt road and figured the farmer wouldn’t mind if I “borrowed” some! I was planning on trying to keep them alive long enough to photograph, but life got in the way and I just let them dry up. I think I like them even better than when they were fresh, though! And I’m thinking I can keep them for a while. They seem to be drying quite nicely!
If you follow me on Instagram, this little vignette will look familiar. I bought a german statice bouquet at the farmer’s market a few weeks ago and made a wreath with it by sticking pieces of it into a grapevine wreath I already had. I love the softness of it and, really, it could work for every season.
The pumpkins are in a cute wire double basket that I’ve had for a couple years. I’ve literally been trying to find a place for this thing all around my house since before our second daughter was born! I loved it, but it just didn’t work anywhere. When we put the corner cabinet in and reworked this corner, though, it finally had a perfect spot in our home!
I see it filled with pinecones and evergreen boughs in the winter and maybe fruit or flowers in the summer. I’m excited to finally be able to use it!
That’s it! My fall dining room! Thanks so much for stopping by!
