Dining Room Fall Decorations

Last week I shared how I decorated our living room for fall.  Today I'll share the little things I did in our dining room to prepare for my favorite season.  Like the living room, the accent colors will change with the seasons.  I decided to make the living and dining rooms more cohesive by choosing the same yellow and orange colors.

The view into our living room is quite different than it was this time last year.  This picture makes me cringe!  This was also before we painted the baseboards and trim and added crown moulding.

We didn't eat in our dining room for a long time!

After refinishing our table, painting our chairs, and refinishing our craigslist corner cabinets throughout the fall and winter season last year, decorating them has been really fun!  I couldn't even decorate in this room last year.  I kept things pretty simple, but incorporated color where I could and didn't try to break the ol' decorating budget!

The silver pumpkins are from the Dollar Store.  I spray painted them in hopes that they would look like the mercury glass ones from Pottery Barn.  I'm not sure how well I did but they are better than they were before!

You can see how I made the super easy and subtle leaf wreath on canvas here

I incorporated some more color into the room by adding a yellow table runner.

The little gray side table simply got some vases and bowls filled with leaves and sticks.

The silhouettes of my boys got a little decoration as well.  That crow is keeping an eye on them!

I hope you enjoyed a little peek into our dining room.  What have you done to decorate your dining room for fall?  Or any part of your house?  Do share!

Happy weekend, everyone!
