the vintage dining room

I thought I would have some fun playing on pinterest this morning.  Found some new favorite dining spaces.

I think this has a wonderful farmhouse feel with its painted white beadboard and the mix of painted and bare wood pieces.

A mix of rustic and elegant dining on the porch. Yes please! 

I think this has a feel of bringing the outdoors in with the use of the wicker combined with the painted farm table.

I love this plate collection and the way the pictures are hung at eye level to those sitting at the table.

A real vintage modern feel.

I love all of these and I'm having a hard time choosing my favorite. What do you think? I know one thing. I could spend a lot of time on Pinterest. And now, we are expecting another round of major storms today, so I guess I better get off Pinterest and go batten down the hatches.

  1. It is hard to pick a favorite because they're all such great images! I think I'm leaning toward the rustic & elegant on the porch. It's fabulous!

  2. i love the first one! that is the look i want when/if we ever get to extend our eaing space. someday!

  3. I would like to eat every meal at that porch setting. It's my first pick, but of course I like that 2nd one too!

  4. I LOVE the first one, but then again, it's a lot like my dining space. Ha ha. That green dolly is pretty neato too!

  5. I love those! I think my favorites are the second and the last - probably the last one is my very favorite. So fun!

  6. You explained the second picture (my fav) perfectly: rustic elegance. I would love to have a meal in that setting. Have a great weekend!

  7. Hi, Laura! New follower here!
    I loved all of them! Loved the painted paneling...
    Loved the mix and match of tables and chairs...
    And LOVED the chandeliers, specially the last one!
    I recently bought a new (used) dining table, so great timing!!

  8. Oh I adore that first table. I have black windsors and would love a rustic farm table.

  9. I love the first photo with the dark chairs/light walls. Nice.

  10. Pinterest is so addicting! I never would have thought to put a chandiler on the porch! What fun!

  11. Wow, they are all beautiful. I have to go with number one (though number two is close). The first one is so simple yet beautiful.
    Thanks for sharing these. :)

  12. I love those dark navy blue walls! Great inspiration pictures!
