Happy first day of Autumn!
Last week I showed you my simple autumn decor in my entry way and living room,
and promised you a peek into my dining room, kitchen and nook this week.
My dining room may be my favorite room in the house.
It's so spacious and open and light!
I'm so glad we turned our small off the kitchen family room into a large dining room.
It's what works best for our family and lifestyle.
I've collected these demijohns at various antiques stores over the past year.
I found a huge demijohn at the antique store marked 1933 the other day,
that I'll show you soon.
Some velvet pumpkins in an antique brown transferware bowl are a simple autumn touch
added to this wooden tray from Homegoods.
I moved the white pumpkin I had on top of the dish cabinet in my dining room,
(see photo of dining room above) into the wooden pedestal bowl on my mantel,
and put a light colored orange squash and a light green squash on top of the dish cabinet instead.
I filled the antique ironstone pitcher that I bought when we were on vacation with wheat
that I bought at the grocery store years ago and have used every autumn since.
Nothing much has changed in the shiplapped part of our dining room,
(on the left of the side of the room when facing the table).
Although a new copper pot from France joined the antique one made in the U.S.A.
on the wall next to the shelves.
It was another Homegoods find.
This post is not a Homegoods ad, but if they wanted me to do one, I'm their gal.
I love that place!
We're still saving money for new countertops and cabinet refinishing/painting in our kitchen.
I'm wavering between having the cabinets sanded down and stained a grayish color
or having them painted white.
I'd love for anyone who has done either to solid oak cabinets to share your experience in the comments.
Some fall foliage tucked inside my antique French canning jar is my simple ode to autumn by my kitchen sink.
In our cozy little sitting nook, the red pouf foot rest is a recent purchase from Homesence in Canada.
My hubs was thrilled to cart it around in the car while we were on vacation! (not!)
But, now he loves having it by his chair.
I attempted a little chalkboard art on the wall in the nook.
I wrote things I'm thankful for in this season around the words Autumn blessings.
Thanks for popping in for part two of my simple autumn decor!
It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a safe and BLESSED weekend!
