{ Late Summer Farmhouse Dining Room }

Hey pals!! Happy glorious sunny Sunday! I'm feeling tired, but the best type of tired because we have been having so much fun this weekend with friends & getting some home projects completed! One of my husband's work partners stayed over & let's just say I had the boys up at 830am putting trim up just so I could blog it ASAP hahaah only me! Anyways, since they were up early I decided I would blog on this beautiful Sunday & then get to cleaning & painting... I mentioned last week that it has been a tough week & I was a bit indifferent with my mind & thoughts, so to snap me back out of it I decided to refresh our summer dining room for a more "late summer" dining look. I know, I know it's not even the end of August, but for "blogland" September first is when I start with the Fall  goods! To be perfectly honest this summer has been kind of a wash, so I am super excited to finish it out with a bang & get going on Fall! Anyways come see what I came up with for this super new fresh look...

My theme for this was to have a late garden look. You know that look that comes about in in early September when things are getting darker, the flower buds are dropping & the leaves start rustling about with warmer colors...Well that was my inspiration for this "late summer dining room". I need to remember to start sharing with you guys more of what I'm thinking during my processes etc.. I usually just start decorating spaces & then get an idea & go with it. I know a lot of you ask how I come up with certain spaces & that's just it, I kind of just go with it & then plan...I know completely backwards.  These stems & the tobacco baskets scream late summer & bonus I has both already! I've said this a million times before, but my decor gets used ALL OVER our home multiple times before I sell or donate it. Practical for all homes without breaking the bank is my theme.

I love these vintage wooden crates stacked next to this chippy chair, it's almost saying summer's coming to an end & it's time to harvest now. I love the calming factor Fall brings especially in the north here in Michigan. It rejuvenates me SO much!

I'm not the greatest painter or artist by ANY means, I leave that to my artist sister but I did so this little painting & I'm kind of obsessed with the imperfections & chippiness of it! That's what happens when you get bored & can't sleep on a Sunday night :)

I wanted to share I night view since I rarely ever do. I love when the lights just going down in here & the bunnies are out in the back of  our property  running around eating the fresh grass...It's simple & magical kind of like this cozy little dining room! I truly hope you guys liked this post today!
