Discover the secrets behind adding beautiful vintage charm and character to your dining room with these creative ideas, using vintage finds from Peacock Ridge Farm!

The first thing that I did was to paint the dining room white.

It really brightened up the room.

The next thing I did was to replace the two modern light fixtures for this beautiful vintage chandelier.

I didn’t want to have to do drywall repair and repaint the entire ceiling, so I found the biggest ceiling medallion.

It is 37″ wide.

It was perfect to hide the holes left from the previous wiring and it added tons of character.

Look at those corbels!

Aren’t they wonderful?

I found these in a vintage marketplace.

They told me that they were from a 100 year old home.

I added a vintage corbel to both ends of the header that separates the living room and dining room.

What a difference they make.

I added woven wood blinds to warm up the space and white curtains to soften the space.

I found the perfect vintage column and bust to fill the corner of the dining room and add yet more vintage character.

I added a faux palm to add life to the room.

PRO TIP: Adding greenery, whether faux or real, adds life to any room.

My dining room didn’t have any storage in it, so this vintage hutch filled the bill.

I store extra dishes and servingware in it, and it adds more warmth to the white room.

I love adding vintage finds to the top of the hutch as well.

Incorporating vintage decor and furniture into your dining room can easily add a special unique charm that breathes new life into the overall space.

I bought this vintage table and 8 chairs for only $150.

What a deal.

I added white furniture wax and chair covers to the chairs to add a bit of French Country flair.

I love how it adds so much beauty to my dining room.

If I am entertaining a large crowd, I can turn the table sideways and add the leaves and two more dining chairs.

It’s perfect for entertaining my friends and family.
