Thanksgiving Table


I'm happy to have my Thanksgiving table together over a week early and the bonus is that I only spent $3 on it!  I have been dying to make a box as the centerpiece for our formal dining room table for months now and I finally got the wood to do it.  However, I just don't think it's going to get finished before Thanksgiving.....maybe Christmas!  While visiting family last month I got a few boards from my late grandpa's barn dating back to the 1930's.  I love that they have a story and that they mean so much!

Rather than a box I went with a single board in the center of the table.  I combined candles I already had with $3 worth of pumpkins I bought last weekend and I think I have a simple yet elegant fall table.

The leaf plates are a few years old from West Elm, the table runner is actually a curtain (gasp) ;), and everything else I had around the house.  I love it when I shop the house and it pays off!

Have a great week!
