Fall Table with a Grain Sack Runner

I just had to show you this wonderful grain sack that I found at the flea market.
I didn’t know what I would use it for when I picked it up, but it fit perfectly on my dining room table.
The fall colored dishes I have had forever and they were purchased at Target.
Next on my list is to paint the dining room chairs.  Any color suggestions?

  2. Love the table Dawn! I vote for cream chairs.

  3. Oh I just love your fall table! I hope you will add your lovely metamorphosis to my Fall in Love linky party on Wednesday.

    Until then, stop by and see the under $20 makeover I gave an ugly brass light fixture.

  13. Hi there, Dawn! Very nice fall table! I really like the way you displayed the flatware in the bucket. Very cool! The runner IS great! I look back now on all the grain sacks my grandparents had on their farm, and it makes me ill to think I was unable to appreciate their worth and beauty back then! Booooo, me! Yaaaaayyy, you! 🙂 I love your walls! I know they are not part of the tablescape, but they’re cool! Good luck with your chair project!

  14. Hi Dawn,
    I love the grain sack used as a runner, what a great dining room you have. It’s beautiful.

  15. What a beautiful autumn dining room, Dawn! So pretty! I’m a grain sack addict, so of course I adore yours!! lol! I would paint your chairs ASCP Old White along with the legs of your table. 🙂

  16. I really like all the clear colors for your Fall tablescape. The flowers look like fine jewelry. I was thinking how fantastic the black chairs were, and then I read your query about choosing a new paint color. I think that the black makes all of your colors pop in an amazing way…so…I’d give them a new coat of black paint. Whatever color you choose will be lovely, I’m certain. Cherry Kay
