Give Your Dining Room a Thanksgiving Magnolia Makeover

The kitchen and dining room get a lot of attention during Thanksgiving, and you can make yours shine by giving it a Magnolia Makeover. While Joanna Gaines is known for her farmhouse style, her Magnolia Home collection features traditional, industrial, modern and French-inspired looks as well. Here are three dining sets that would up the style level of your Thanksgiving Dinner.

Joanna’s Neoclassic Windsor Oval Leaf Table is a versatile piece that works with one or both leaves up or down. Its grooved shiplap top is hand distressed in Jo’s white finish for a casual vintage look. Pair it with a primitive farmhouse chair for a casual look or choose a colorful Parsons for something more modern.

If you love a more traditional style, choose the English Country Oval Table and Emory Side Chairs, which were inspired by original antique furnishings to offer a sense of history. Joanna designed these pieces to include classical ornament and details, such as decorative molding on the apron and a leaf medallion on the base. The combination is a polished and timeless look.

Add an architectural feel to your dining space with the Double Pedestal Dining Table from Magnolia Home. Joanna was inspired by massive corbel brackets from grand old buildings,  often recycled as today’s architectural antiques. The tabletop has a rugged shop floor finish, while Revival Arm Chairs add elegance and grace.

Magnolia Makeover: 4 Items Joanna Uses In The Entryway

Joanna Gaines’s Magnolia Home style won the hearts of homeowners across the country with many of us clamoring to create our own Fixer Upper style. We love the show and noticed that Joanna often uses four things in the entryway to make it welcoming as well as practical.

 

Rocking Chairs

Many of the homes have beautiful front porches, and the perfect way to enjoy them is on a rocking chair with a tall glass of iced tea and one of Joanna’s famous cupcakes. If your entry has room, add a rocking chair or two of your own. A hot cup of apple cider will turn afternoon relaxing into a sweet retreat.

 

Family-Friendly Storage

Joanna is always thinking of the kiddos, as well as their shoes, sports equipment, backpacks and toys. You’ll often find cute cubbies, bins and baskets in the entryway where kids’ (and adults’) things can be neatly and conveniently stored.

 

Seating

In addition to storage, Joanna loves to include an entryway bench where guests can sit or kids can stop to put on their boots. She usually finds something with a sense of history, to add character to the space. And a mix of materials adds that industrial touch.

 

 

Quote Art

Whether it’s beloved saying or simply words that have meaning, Joanna often has Texas artist Jimmy Don turn inspirational sayings into metal art hung in the entry or foyer. Words can welcome you home, or remind you of what’s important as you leave. Find the phrase that means the most to you, and display it with love.

 

How many of these items do you have in your entryway?

 

 

Magnolia Makeover: A First Home For Avid Dog Lovers

On last night’s Fixer Upper, Andrew and Brittany were looking to buy their first home together, and one of their must-haves was an inviting feeling for their two dogs. They settled on a four-bedroom house built 1958 that sat on a beautiful lot with mature oak trees. The couple wanted a large main living space, and we love with Joanna did with the living room, which offers casual sophistication for the couple. If you love it, too, it’s time to do a Magnolia Makeover in your home.

Start with the exact sofa Joanna chose for the room. Available by order at any Art Van Furniture showroom, the Modern Tailor Sofa from Magnolia Home features tuxedo style and smart tufting. The rich gray upholstery is sophisticated as well as family- (and pet-) friendly.

 

Next add the cocktail bench. You can get the exact Linear Upholstered Bench from Magnolia Home in a color called “fog.” Or mix things up a bit by choosing our Boice Black Bench, with a beautiful gold metal base. The dark upholstery offers a nice contrast to the gray sofa.

 

Next add two accent chairs. We have the exact Cambridge Accent Chairs from Magnolia Home in stock, available for immediate pickup or delivery. The European style offers a nice complement to the modern sofa, and the soft color lightens up the room.

 

Finally, anchor the space with a rug. The Kivi Ivory Multi-color Rug from Magnolia Home is the same one Joanna chose for the room. You’ll love the classic pattern for years to come, and it’s versatile style blends beautifully with any décor.

 

Add dogs and you’ll have the same room that thrilled this adorable couple! What do you think of this Magnolia Makeover? See the rest of our series by clicking here.
