A Simple Autumn Dining Home Tour



The first few weeks after we moved here, we didn’t have a complete dining table set. We had sold most our stuff when we left LA. Thankfully, I found a second-hand dining table online that Brent and I liked, which only cost $150. Its original color was black, and though I preferred white, the main top wood is what made us choose it! One of my good friends, Denise, has been repainting her own furniture lately. She inspired me to paint my own dining table since I like the color white. I think the color white makes our home feel more spacious and look brighter. It was my first time painting furniture, so it was a good thing that my friend recommended chalk paint. It’s really easy to use. Since it’s fall and Thanksgiving is coming, I wanted to make a simple fall-themed centerpiece for our dining table. Here’s what I came up with.

My kids and I were walking outside and we saw these big, wide leaves that I thought I could use to style our centerpiece. I wrote words that inspire me on them saying: “Family,” “Thankful,” “Blessed,” and “Gather.” I added small pumpkins and used a tall rounded glass vase to place them in. I love the simplicity of it, especially since it doesn’t take up a lot of space on the table. I also added a wooden table runner that my mom brought from the Philippines. Below are a few similar products that I thought you might like to check out!
