Modern Farmhouse Dining Room Makeover

This post is in partnership with World Market.

Happy Monday you lovely people! I feel like today deserves all the jazz hands because I’m SO dang excited to finally show you all our dining room makeover. Now if you follow me over on Instagram, you might have noticed that I mentioned this makeover a few times. We took this on in the middle of December, which made for a busy and exhausting month, but I’m so glad we did. We chose a new dining table, chairs and all of the decor from World Market–I actually shopped for everything online, which was super convenient. Plus I was able to stay within my budget of $1500, so the whole makeover was really affordable. I’m absolutely thrilled with how it all came together, so grab your coffee and come on in for a tour! Let’s get started with a little reminder of what this room looked like before:

My main goal for this room was to create a simple and clean look, with the focus being on three main things: the dining table, chairs, and chandelier. This isn’t a big room, it’s actually pretty small, so I was really selective with what went into this space. World Market has an amazing selection of dining room tables, so we had lots of great options. We ultimately decided on the Rustic Java Greyson dining table and I couldn’t be happier with our choice. This looks like an antique to me–something that’s been in the family for years and years. It has some light distressing, just enough to give it that worn-in look I adore so much. And I think the combo of this rustic table paired with these tufted dining chairs gives the whole space an elegant farmhouse feel.

Can we just talk about this gorgeous chandelier for a hot minute? I mean, this baby deserves her own post for crying out loud. We switched out my old Craigslist light for this one and I couldn’t love it more. The hand carved details and the vintage feel give this a classic, glamorous look without being too flashy.

Another change we made was to add beadboard to the entire room. I am SO happy we decided to do this because it adds so much farmhouse charm. We also switched out our old curtains for drop cloth curtains. (You can get more info about those in my full review here.) We raised the curtain rod up higher, just to create the illusion of a taller window. I love, love, love this change. You might not think that the higher curtain rod would matter much, but it makes such a huge difference.

You guys, I have a small obsession with aprons. I think maybe it’s because they remind me of my mom and Granny–growing up they always wore aprons while cooking supper or baking, so they just bring back memories of those sweet, simple days of years past. The apron hanging there in the middle is soooo old, I think it belonged to my great-grandmother. The other two are from World Market, they have a really great selection of aprons to choose from. And this industrial rack is exactly what I needed to display them all.

I’m really excited to use this room more in 2017. It’s not something we’ve done much, eating in our formal dining room, but it’s definitely one thing I want to do more often. I’m thinking Sunday morning breakfast needs to become a weekly ritual in here. I can just see this gorgeous table covered in delicious food, with happy kiddos running around, sunshine streaming in through the window and of course bacon. Lots and lots of bacon.

Well friends, that’s our budget-friendly dining room makeover. I have listed all of the sources down below if you’re interested. I’d love to hear what you think of the room and be sure to let me know if you have any questions. I always love chatting with you guys! xoxo

    What about the lovely side chairs? I only saw info about the tufted chair. I have a Amish table with side benches and would like to make a change into 4 chair on the sides instead. Any ideas Thanks.

  • Went shopping today for “nice” clothes & came home with a bunch of cozy sweatshirts & yoga pants! #oops 🙈 I can’t help it, I just love my comfies. This top is my favorite find from the day & it’s currently on sale 🙌🏻🙌🏻 http://liketk.it/2zrB5 #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • “Surround yourself with people who think the way you want to think”. ✨✨
__  One of my goals this year is to read one book a month. I know that probably sounds pathetic to any of you avid readers in the group, but it’s a good little goal for me & I’m excited about it. This month I’m reading “You’re a Badass” by Jen Sincero & I LOVE it so far.  Here’s one of my favorite passages in the book: — “When you hang out with whiners, pessimists, tweeters, bleachers, freakers-outers and life-is-so-unfairers, it’s an uphill climb to keep yourself in a positive headspace. Stay away from people with tiny minds and tiny thoughts and start hanging out with people who see limitless possibility as the reality. Surround yourself with people who act on their big ideas, who take action on making positive change in the world and who see nothing as out of their reach.” —  BOOM. 🙌🏻🙌🏻 So true, right?! Cheers to my fellow dreamers & visionaries. Don’t let anyone hold you back. 👊🏻
  • I’ve had so many questions about how these @walmart recliners are holding up & I can honestly say we are LOVING them so far. We’ve only had them a little over a month, but so far so good. I’ll probably do a full review for you guys soon, so stay tuned for that if you’re interested. In other news I have a new VLOG up today. Follow along as I go to Target, buy all the organizing things & take on the hot mess situation in my kitchen cabinets 😬😬 The link is in my profile.
  • Home from my hair appointment & I practically begged my husband to stand outside in a freezing (and windy) snow storm to snap a few photos of me. We somehow managed to get one decent shot, but you have to swipe right to see the outtakes #weareprofessionals 🤣🤣 happy Friday guys!! 🙌🏻 http://liketk.it/2zpyb #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • This afternoon I planned to work during nap time, but instead I spent an hour laying in bed with this girl chatting about how she’s going to have a house right next door to me when she grows up. We talked about how we’re going to be best friends forever & about how she loves the color pink. I snapped this photo to send to my husband & I had no plans of posting it here, but this is a moment I wish I could stay in forever. This is what I live for & it’s these simple moments that fill my soul & put everything into perspective for me. Motherhood is such a gift—the good days, the hard days & everything in between. I’m so grateful for it all. ❤️
  • It was nice enough to have the windows open this afternoon, so I happily soaked in all that sunshine & fresh air. Is it too soon to get excited about spring?!☀️🙌🏻 In other news I’ve been organizing & cleaning like a mad woman today. I just finished our cabinets/pantry & they look SO much better. Next up is the fridge, I’m just working up the courage to go in there. Maybe I’ll leave that job to my husband 🤣🤣 Who else is organizing all the things right now? 🙋‍♀️ http://liketk.it/2znnE #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
