Festive Dining Room


Hi, everyone!  As I shared in this post, my dining room is featured in the latest issue of Creating Vintage Charm (insert wild happy dance!)  Since I had to decorate it for the magazine a few months ago, I was ready to change it out and do something different by the time December rolled around!


 I kept the same idea as before-simple and lots of natural elements.  I showed a few pics of my dining room in my last post, but here are more of the entire room...



















I added this 'JOY' to the door of my barn wood cabinet that my dad made...















I changed my chalkboard from 'Tis the Season' to a tiny 'Peace' for something different...


Hope you enjoyed the tour of my dining room!  Have a wonderful day!

  4. Hi Susan,
    Your dining room is gorgeous!!!! I love every bit of it. My fav in the room is that corner cabinet. So pretty. I love the way the light comes into your dining room too. That great window with the white pitcher collection is great. Love all your vintage touches.

  5. My favorites: the drying rack, chalkboard, hands in the cabinet, and those wonderful whit pitchers on the window sill! They create such a serene, fresh glow against the light. I've never seen this. Hope you're having a great weekend.

    Hugs,
    Meredith

  11. Beautifully decorated! I love how everything flows. I've always thought that simple is better when decorating for a holiday. I love what nature has to offer this time of year with fresh greenery, berries and pinecones. :)
