Welcome back. If you were here for the tour on Friday, I’m so happy to see you again. I have the table set and would love to have you join me for some good food and great conversation.
If you’re new around here, I built my own farmhouse table last year and love the rustic look and feel. I scoured Craig’s List until I found chairs that I love. The chairs came with a table that was painted white, but I quickly turned around and sold it on Craig’s List. I don’t have any interest in keeping chairs and tables as a set. (Throw rotten tomatoes at me, go ahead.) I tend to like the collected and eclectic look. Which explains the nailhead trim head chairs I purchased at World Market (see below for source links.)
The pedestal fruit bowl used to be dark walnut, but it had fallen out of favor in my decorating so I added two coats of chalk paint and distressed it. Now I love it again!
The place settings were left simple with a burlap ribbon around the plates and a mini pumpkin on top.
I used some alstroemeria flowers in little votive jars because I knew they last longer than other flowers. Unfortunately the peach colored flowers already dropped their pedals but the yellow ones are holding strong.
A few years ago I temporarily taped antique sheet music into the back of the buffet hutch. It’s funny how temporary sometimes becomes more permanent. I added the fake white gourd and pumpkin to the shelves. Don’t mind those two pinecones peeking out from the top shelf. I guess I couldn’t see them when I was decorating. Oops.
