Autumn Table Decor and a Vintage Industrial Table

Hello!  We've been so busy lately so I'm a little late to the table decor party but I finally had a chance to put everything together yesterday and wanted to share it here on the blog today.  I also built a new table that we are planning to give away at our shop grand opening during a drawing which I'll show you below.  First up, our fall table.....


I really like to keep things simple and natural, whenever possible.  I also tried to use everything I already had.  The only thing I bought for this table were the pumpkin colored napkins for a steal on ebay ($11 for a set of 8) and the faux wheat and candles.


To keep things natural I used wooden salad bowls and my bread boards as well as the little rosewood dipping bowls.  I love the small pop of color the pumpkin colored napkins provide. 


To add a metal element to the table, I used vintage silver flatware, candle holders and salt and pepper shakers.


To continue with a farmhouse feel, I picked up some faux wheat at the craft store and placed it in one of my ironstone white pitchers.  Then I simply wrapped a piece of scrap burlap around it.


For the hutch, I added more faux wheat in a smaller milk pitcher and picked up some apples in the grocery store to put in my vintage dough trencher.  And of course, a couple of extra bread boards.  :)



My absolute favorite thing is the new rug my hubby bought for us for under the dining table.  I've had my eye on this rug at West Elm now forever and they finally went on sale for only $129.99.  That is our kind of bargain.  :)


The vintage industrial table under the subway art is the table I put together yesterday.  I was thrilled when my hubby told me he found a couple more scrap pieces of bowling alley floor remnants in our storage building so I went to Lowes and bought a bunch of iron piping and got to work.


I wanted to create something to give away during a drawing that we are having during the grand opening of our shop so this is what I came up with.  I happen to love it and I'm really looking forward to giving it away.



I can't wait to sit around that table at Thanksgiving with my family.  I love the holidays!  What are you thinking of serving this year?  Any traditions?

  2. I love this room, but I would really like to see what you have in the basket on the floor. Are those over sized scrabble tiles? Did you DIY them?

    1. Hi Carol, thanks and yes they are over sized scrabble tiles that I made with wood scraps and then stenciled a letter on. We found the large metal basket in a junk pile. :)

  4. Amazing! I smile everytime I see a new blog post on here! The vintage industrial table is gorgeous! I may have to try to diy one myself, since I live nowhere near your store. The pumpkin napkins add the right amount of colour to the room. Love everything you do! Enjoy the holiday!

  10. I love the decor, and I have admired your table for some time now. My husband and I are building our kitchen table soon, hopefully before November! I get so much inspiration from you!!!

  11. Lovely decor and a beautiful tablescape, Diana. I also like things on the neutral side. Your breadboards at each setting are perfect! How great to have the space and lovely surface for guests to cut individual breads and rolls (we love our bread in this family.) The small table is a great piece and one lucky person will be sure to enjoy it.
    We have the traditional Thanksgiving dinner (but ours here in Canada just over a week away) with turkey, spiral ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, veggies and homemade cranberry sauce. Lots of crusty rolls and butter too. And of course a variety of pies for dessert. Looking forward to it!

  21. Love your tablesetting. The pumpkin coloured serviettes were just what was needed to add a little bit of colour.

  22. Your dining room is gorgeous. I love the way you have it decorated for fall - the more simple, farmhouse look. It looks so clean, crisp, and inviting.

  23. Wow, your whole home is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Can I ask what shade of colour you use on your walls please? Light brown/grey? And, how you manage to keep your home so clean with 4 kids. I have 2 littlies and have just redone a vintage lounge in a light tan drop cloth. I'm so afraid the kids will ruin it. Any suggestions please? Again, your style is amazing! If you have time, I'd love you to drop by my blog www.knotallthatiseam.com sometime. All the best, Julie x
