Our muggy hot summer days are long gone in Tennessee, we got our first frost and freeze last weekend and the leaves are showing their full potential! It always amazes me how the world can go from everyday shades of green to the amazing colors of fall overnight. Like a painter has come while everyone was in bed and created a work of art. It is time for a homey fall dining room makeover.

Making A Homey Fall Dining Room
This gorgeous chunky black dining table we found at a yard sale one day in the country. We fell in love with the dark patina and the beautiful detail and we knew we had to have it. What a great buy it was too $25.00!
We used a mix of wood and silver chargers, with black ceramic plates, and antique china and adorable little green pumpkins.
We painted the faux pumpkins with chalk paint to go with our color scheme. The wooden trays were purchased from Antique Farmhouse and the beautiful little plates were a gift from a friend of the Rosevine Cottage Girls. Her mother-in-law had passed away and she mailed us the beautiful plates to be a part of the Cottage. We are so thankful and feel so blessed to have them.
We added some pumpkins and hydrangeas to our side table to add touches of fall to our side table. The hydrangea wreaths were made by our own grapevines made into a wreath and then added our dried hydrangeas from our own bushes. Check out our tutorial!
I found this pig head sculpture at Walmart and had to bring it home! It’s just so adorable. I think it looks pretty cute on this galvanized tray with other odds and ends. We also wrapped this little piece of garland we found at a yard sale a few years back around the tray. I love how it nods towards December’s sleigh bells.
We start decorating for Christmas in early November- I know that’s early for some of you but it was a tradition began by my Christmas loving grandma many many years ago. Besides, it takes us a while to get everything up! If I’m honest I would have the Christmas tree up by Halloween if Mr. Cottage would let me, this year he’s kind of feeling it (every time we go to Lowes he begs to get this massive 12-foot tree, we keep trying to tell him our ceiling is only 8 feet but…).
I love the layers of colors right here! Deep and rich like fall with a surprising pop of color.
This homey fall dining room look can be done quite easily. I love to go to estate sales, yard sales, antique stores, and thrift stores throughout the year and collect fun stuff to put together.
Ask family members if they have pieces that you can borrow for the table if you are hosting dinner. This is an easy way to find what you need. Check your craft stores too.
Places like Hobby Lobby have 40% off sales quite early and if the fall decor is not on sale, look online for their weekly 40% off coupons for you to download to your phone or print out.
It’s official, I’m obsessed with these pumpkin colors! We will absolutely be growing them next year!!!
Aren’t they gorgeous??
If you don’t have access to these real pumpkins we have found faux ones for sale.
These little faux pumpkins could become place holders if you write your guest’s names on them with a sharpie.
We picked this beauty up at a yard sale last week! I got a great deal on it- and some awesome vintage hats. I love the pop of color but it still has the more neutral pumpkins.
