We did it!! With the help of The Brick and some tips from my handy Hubby, I successfully made over our sitting room into an eclectic, boho farmhouse dining room space. I’m thrilled with how it turned out, and I think all of the work was definitely worthwhile. Why don’t you come take a tour?

In case you’ve missed it, I’ve transformed our formal sitting room into a “boho farmhouse” dining room over the last 6 weeks as part of the One Room Challenge. Make sure to visit Calling It Home’s blog to see all of the beautiful room makeovers for more decor inspiration!

I’ve always loved the front room of our home, but we simply weren’t using it.

Here it was BEFORE as a formal sitting room:

Although it’s really pretty, I thought that transforming this room into a dining space with a table would better suit our family. We’d be able to host “fancy dinners” here, and the table would double as a space to do crafts and homework. I also wanted to add some trim work to the room to give it more detail.

By using a lot of the furniture we already had in here and bringing in some key new pieces from The Brick, the space has been transformed into a “boho farmhouse” dining room.

Here’s how our dining room looks now:

It’s a colourful, eclectic space that will serve a few different functions for our family. I love the mix of industrial pieces with the softer ones, and the bold DIY drapes and modern artwork add some drama.

This gorgeous table is the Keswick Dining Table from The Brick. I thought it would be a good choice for this room because its warm wood contrasts nicely with all of the white elements in the space. It’s also solid pine and extends to a whopping 116 inches, so it’s a great piece for big family gatherings.

Because I love to do things a little unexpectedly, I’ve paired the table with the settee I already had in the space as well as these beautiful Peyton Dining Chairs from The Brick. I like all of these elements together – the soft white of the settee, the warm wood of the table and the bronze metal of the chairs. When putting together your own dining set, don’t be afraid to mix and match different pieces and styles to make your own unique look!

This settee is one I’ve had for a few years (here’s a similar idea from The Brick), and I couldn’t part with it. How am I going to keep it clean, you ask? I won’t have the kids eating spaghetti while sitting on it, and if they do sit and eat on it, I’ll simply cover it with a table cloth or sheet. We’ll go with the flow, and I’m digging this lounge-dining hybrid look.

One of the biggest projects in this room was the DIY board and batten. I did it all myself except for this arch that we had to build out a little with MDF and shims because it was slightly crooked to begin with.

I shed literal blood, sweat and tears over all of this trim work, but I LOVE how it’s elevated the space to a whole new level of prettiness. You can find my DIY board and batten tutorial here.

I kept the paint colour on the upper third of the walls (Valspar’s Distant Valley) because I still love it, and the trim is Whisper White by Behr.

This unique teal wooden mirror matches so well with the room, and I found it at The Brick.

I kept the light fixture here because I still love it and I think it suits the style of the room. We lowered it to about 34″ from the top of the table to make it a more appropriate dining height.

The teal area rug was relatively inexpensive, but I think it makes a huge statement in this space. I adore the colour, and the overdyed style is so pretty!

The vases, large scale art and candlesticks are from The Brick, and the pillows, drapes and arm knit blanket are handmade.

  1. It’s absolutely perfect Christina!!! The board and batten trim adds so much texture to the walls and I love that you kept some of that beautiful blue! That new table is absolutely stunning, I love the way you paired it with your gorgeous settee! Everything looks incredible!

    1. Than you so much, Kristi. You’re too sweet, as always πŸ™‚ We love how you picked out all the details and love them as much as Christina does.

  2. I LOVE it! That table is out of this world and may be the perfect stain colour I’ve ever seen. I love mixing and matching different furniture and really detest “rules” so your clever use of the settee is my fave! Yay you’re done and now a master at trim!

    1. Thank you, Laurie. You’re too sweet! Christina also loves mixing different design styles to create that Boho farmhouse look. πŸ™‚

  3. Wow! This room is so amazing! I love how the rug looks with everything. It really makes the farmhouse table look great! Pinning this!

  4. Love the rich, saturated teal! And that table! Gaahhhh! It’s simply amazing. You did a terrific job with this room –especially the B&B. Kudos and congrats! Susie from The Chelsea Project

  5. It turned out beautifully Christina! I’m gaga over those drapes and the colour of the rug. That table is pretty gorgeous too! Great job on your board and batten. Well done my friend. πŸ™‚

  6. I LOVE IT!! ? The colors are just fantastic. It feels so inviting and like every piece was made for each other. I’m so diggin’ the couch seating at the table, too. Wonderful transformation!!! ??

  7. Wow! While it looked great as a sitting room, the dining room is amazing too! I love the colors and the board and batten. So beautiful!

  8. Wow! It was pretty before but it’s even prettier now and probably so much more versatile! I love the deep teal of the rug and pillows. Everything flows together beautifully. I also added board and batten for the ORC this go around (and last) so I can relate to the pain and also the gain of putting it up! Beautiful job!

    1. Thank you, Kim. It definitely is a lot of work putting up the board and batten but most definitely worth it πŸ™‚

  9. This is absolutely beautiful Christina! I love that dining table….and the area rug is beautiful! Just stunning!!!!

  10. I cannot get over how gorgeous that table is!!!! And your choice of blues and greens for the space are just perfect. It all fits in so well with the rest of your home, while having its own little punch of colour. I just love it!

  11. It’s beautiful, Christina! You really show how you can add a lot of colour (like with that gorgeous rug) but yet keep the space feeling neutral and fresh! Love that light fixture too.

  12. What a beautiful room!! ALL the colors are fabulous and they work so well together – but the color of the rug really draws the eye and sets it off. I really like the table and wonder if you’d share the manufacturer name. I’m in the states, but perhaps there may be a seller here.

    I wonder if you’ve had many opportunities to use the dining space and how does the sofa work for you? I would think having the sofa arms so high would make it difficult getting in and out from the table? Although I really like the idea of a bench seat for the space.

  13. Your style is so unique in comparison to other people I’ve
    read stuff from. Thank you for posting when you
    have the opportunity, Guess I’ll just book mark this blog.
