{ Charming Farmhouse Style Summer Dining Room Bench }

Tuesday already? It seems like the weekend was just here..& now August is just zooming by it seems & that "dirty 30" birthday of mine is fast approaching haha yikes! With my 30th birthday coming up soon I have been kind of having a midlife crisis not all out, but to think I'm going to be 30??? That just blows my mind..& it's been giving me all the feels on life, work, family etc..I have been doing a lot of soul searching & with all that comes changes-ups in our home!! This past week I went crazy & moved a bunch of stuff around, added a few new pieces & also shopped our home for a fresh new look! One of the biggest, yet simplest changes was moving this dark sage color bench from @homegoods into our dining room! I had previously has it in our living room HERE 
& randomly decided I wanted to use it as it was intended for..I actually forgot it was a bench haha & oddly enough I've always wanted a bench in our dining room, so I went for it!! 

So as you can see I just simplified this space & added the bench!! I love it so much in here because it's airy,roomy & gives it so much more charm rather than just plain chairs! I'm excited to play with this for the holidays!!

I went super simple on the tablescape too, greenery, black wire basket & some vintage mason jars all the way from the lovely Kennebunk,ME!

I added the stool not only because it's super special to me { see why HERE } but because I'm short & I've been using it a lot lately haha! The crock was a free thrifty find & the flowers from @hobbylobby!

Truth be told this is one of my favorite little corners in our suburban cottage!! It will be getting a change-up soon & I CAN'T wait to show you..Hint: Fall. Haha!
