Farmhouse Christmas Dining Room Tour

 

Farmhouse Christmas Dining Room

 

I am so glad that you have stopped by to see my farmhouse Christmas dining room!  Today I have joined up with a group of amazing bloggers to create a fabulous blog hop!  This hop in focused on our holiday homes!  We have each chosen a room in our house to feature and create a tour for you.

 

As I thought about decorating my dining room, I really wanted to evoke a simple, farmhouse style, while including and featuring natural elements.  Now, I will warn you, there are going to be many pictures.  You  know how sometimes all your pictures turn out exactly like you want and you don’t want to edit them out?  Rarely, if ever does this happen, but for this project I could not be more happy with them all!  The first project I did to tie the space together was create some “grainsack” fabric.  You can see how  I did that here.  I wanted to pair down my accessories, and let the light and the natural elements really take the main focus.  Even my large, and yes it is a very large chalkboard, got simplified.  A simple wreath I found at a thrift store and a small red wreath that I had created a nice piece of art without over doing it.  It really was a happy accident.  I had originally planned on drawing an elaborate Christmas theme, but after a hung the wreaths as an experiment, it just stuck!

For my table centerpiece, I chose to use tree clippings, a basket of beautiful apples, and some mason jars with beans in them.  The whole tablescape  exudes natural elements and the lovely farmhouse chic style, but with a touch of modern.

What do you think of using real tree clippings in your decor?

I love my giant fork and spoon I found at an antique store.  Where else would I put them!

These apples were picked from my in-laws apple tree.  I was so grateful to get some from them since our trees froze this year.  Don’t they make for great decoration?

I cannot get enough of this pewter bowl I found at our local thrift store, and filled with beans, there is a great juxtaposition between the shiny beauty of the bowl and the earthy look of the beans.  Plus if I get hungry, I can make dinner.

The whole room had a very light filled, natural, and understated Christmas theme to it.  I wish I could spend all day in this area.

I added a few Christmas touches my shelves including some faux Christmas trees and a piece of artwork I made last year.  “Oh, holy night the start are brightly shining, it is the night of our dear saviors birth.”

A small piece of salvaged wood from a junk yard, and a little Rae Dunn Clay pottery is something I cannot get enough of.

I was able to create a new piece of art for my craft paper roll, and you can see how I made it here.Farmhouse Christmas Dining Room

What do you think of my mounted craft paper roll?  I love being able to customize the artwork to whatever season or even it going on.

For my buffet, I decided to go simple.  I accessorized my antique dough bowl with pages from an old book that I rolled individually.

I mean the light!  As difficult as this place was to photograph, I really love the light filled photos I was able to get.

More Juniper tree limbs flank the dough bowl and bring more of that nature in.

Do you see that scale in the background?  This thing is like my most favorite thing in my home.

A simple grainsack towel and some twig balls was all it needed.
