Farmhouse Summer Dining Room Decor (Tour 2019)

This post contains affiliate links.

It's finally feeling like summer around here! We have had 3 full days of sun with no rain or snow. I count that as a win! If you follow me on social media, you'll know that we have had a super rough spring...technically it's still spring, but usually we are watering our grass beginning to mid May. It's mid-June and still haven't turned on our sprinklers. This weather is perfect since today I'll be sharing my dining room with you all for Marty's from A Stroll Thru Life's summer tour! This is where 30 bloggers share some amazing summer decor inspiration with you all week! You can see the full list at the bottom of the post. If you are joining along the blog hop, and have just come from Follow The Yellow Brick Home, welcome!

This year all around my home I have included lots and lots of terracotta. I found an easy technique to faux age the pots and kind of got carried away :) So, I have them all over....and the dining room was no exception.

 The only thing that changes seasonal in my dining room is what goes on my table, like place settings and the tablescape. I tend to change up the pillows on the head of the table along with the draped blanket. Why do I need pillows and a blanket in here? I don't :) I just love the look and it makes it so inviting.
 For the tablescape, I used a variety of terracotta pots. You can see how I aged them here (tutorial). I placed them in this vintage wood crate, added some height with other pots and a planter stool.

 For the places settings, I kept it really simple. I found these amazing new chargers from Kirklands to change things up from my normal rattan ones.
I put a simple sprig from my boxwood on each plate, just to add enough of a pop of color.
 I added a little greenery and hug some more boxwood sprigs to my cup rack. This isn't an angle I show to much and I don't know why ...I guess it's the fact I have to go knee deep in my kids toys to get this angle :)

 For my buffet, this stays the same for the most part besides slight changes.

 I just did a tutorial on how to make your very own vintage style cutting board last week. I have a slight obsession with them...both handmade or store bought. You can probably tell if you look around all these pictures :)
 I played around with changing up my lavender gallery wall but ultimately came back to them. I think they are timeless and I couldn't find anything better. You can see the tutorial on how to make them here (tutorial). Also, this shiplap/planked wall was one of the first projects I did in my house about 10 years ago, and is still my favorite! It brings so much character into the space. You can see the tutorial for it here.
 And there you have it! I'll be sharing all my rooms and my new patio update in the coming weeks, so be sure to come back and check them out :)
