Fixer Upper Club House: French Country Dining Room

If you love the Country French farmhouse style renovation Chip and Joanna Gaines tackled on their HGTV series Fixer Upper (Season 5, Episode 11), this Get the Look post with resources is for you! As a real life renovator, I enjoy collecting lessons and decor ideas from the show. Today’s Fixer Upper Club House: French Country Dining Room will, without much fuss, aim to pull together a dining room in the spirit of the inspirational Club House on Fixer Upper.

Psst. Just a personal update about life lately: I’m hangin’ in there but feeling understandably weary about all the hurt as well as unrest. All lives cannot matter until BLACK LIVES do, and I am going to do better to actively be an antiracist. I’m lookin’ in the mirror, and this is humbling but always a good place to start.

The approach to French Country Joanna took for the project involved keeping the palette very quietly tone on tone, providing seating for eight, mixing a few vintage pieces with new furnishings, injecting multiple textures (nubby linen, woven seagrass, and rustic wood for the chandelier as well as a soft cloud of an anchoring rug.

Serene Country French Farmhouse Dining Room: Addressing the Walls

The Club House dining room already offered a bit of architectural interest with its existing wainscot paneling before any reno, so the design plan was primarily a cosmetic one. Joanna Gaines chose a lovely grasscloth wallpaper for above the paneling.

Here are a few examples to consider.

Essential Haruki Sisal 12' L x 36" W Wallpaper Roll
Schumacher Essential Haruki Sisal Wallpaper (Silver), Wayfair…certainly lovely indeed.

Grasscloth wallpaper is typically made from a natural material such as hemp, and designers love it since it works so well adding texture and organic warmth to spaces both modern and traditional. It is a more delicate wall covering that cannot be sponged off to clean. Gentle vacuuming with a brush attachment does the trick. There are also plenty of products that mimic the look which are made from synthetic materials.

Read this for tips for designing and installing grasscloth wallpaper.

Grasscloth Wall Covering

Grasscloth is heavier than typical wall coverings made of paper, and is trickier to install so it’s best left to a pro. Since it is made of natural materials, each piece is not going to “match” perfectly. If your eye can’t relax with such variation, it may not be the right choice for you. Grasscloth wallpaper is also not as durable so it is not appropriate for rooms where it will be bumped or damaged by children.

You’ll note some of these grasscloth wallcovering options include a shimmery metallic feature.

Self-Adhesive Faux Grasscloth

For renters or folks who want to experience the look of grasscloth, there are self-adhesive faux grasscloth products which don’t require professional installation since they are peel and stick. I’d love to try this on the back of a book shelf!

Achievable and affordable Country French farmhouse design ideas…certainly lovely indeed!

Paint Color to Get the Look of Warm Sand or Soft Natural Linen

While you won’t achieve the woven texture of grasscloth with paint, you can approach the mood of it by reaching for paint color hues suggestive of those in the linen dining chairs.

BEHR Premium Plus Ultra 8 oz. #PPU7-16 Vintage Linen Matte Interior/Exterior Paint and Primer in One Sample
BEHR Vintage Linen, Home Depot…certainly lovely indeed.

I actually did some research into faux painted finishes to mimic the look of woven linen or grasscloth, and I must say the projects I found were not terribly convincing.

Glidden Premium 5 gal. PPG1029-3 French Gray Linen Flat Interior Latex Paint
BEHR French Gray Linen, Home Depot…certainly lovely indeed.

If it’s texture you want, I suggest…um…getting texture. But if it’s the mood and color you’re after, you may be able to satisfy that part of the design plan with paint.

Serene Country French Farmhouse Dining Room: Area Rug

Joanna Gaines chose a serenely muted ivory area rug for the tone on tone French Country dining room as well. The contrast is kept low with the light wood tone hardwood flooring, linen slipcovered dining chairs, and natural-linen toned walls. Here are some options I found:

Burrus Ivory Area Rug

While this last option is more geometric and contemporary in feel, it would work well with the other design elements in the dining room.

Dining Chair Ideas

If you’re buying a slew of them, it’s quite an investment, so I have some ideas for a more cost conscious strategy of getting the look. For instance, a pair of these upholstered chairs cost 75% less.

I’m thinking about trying them out when we get around to tackling our lower level (it’s bachelor pad days are numbered now that our son is shopping for his first house!).

These skirted wingback chairs are so pretty and would work in any number of rooms outside of the dining room.

Doric Petite Wing Back Skirted Arm Chair
Doric Petite Wing Back Skirted Arm Chair, Wayfair…decidedly lovely indeed.

While there isn’t an upholstered bench in our inspiration dining room, I found this super friendly priced one and thought you might enjoy entertaining the possibility! Wouldn’t it be wonderful in an entry, on a landing, or paired with dining chairs?

Trost Linen Upholstered Bench.

French Country Room Sideboard & Decor

The decor is kept simple in this Fixer Upper dining room and limited with white vases of a greenery on the sideboard and a mirror as well as a distressed planter in the center of the dining table with stems of green only.

Sideboard Ideas

A wood sideboard is topped with what appears to be a vintage salvaged wood mirror (or a wonderful replica). Some of the original paint remains on the rustic wood, imparting age and character as well as rusticity.

Campania 76.13" Wide 3 Drawer Oak Wood Sideboard
Rustic Distressed Oak Sideboard

While there are a good number of wood sideboards in every size imaginable for your own design schemes, a vintage piece would work well and could even be painted to suit. Search your fleamarket for a treasure!

For a more sophisticated and elegant sideboard, I fell in love with this one:

If you’re dining room is on the cozy side and won’t accommodate a large dining table AND a buffet, a little cart like this can be functional and a base for creating a decorative vignette:

Industrial Wood and metal trolley cart
Industrial Wood & Metal Trolley Cart, Amazon…certainly lovely indeed.

While it’s industrial in style and doesn’t scream “France,” you could definitely play up the character while giving yourself some storage and functionality for entertaining.

Country French Farmhouse Dining Room Chandelier

Joanna Gaines went on record saying the chandelier for this French country dining room was her favorite piece. It truly sets a tone, and if you’re going to splurge on one thing, this is going to give you a lot of bang for the buck.

Lots of more cost conscious French Country beautiful possibilities reside HERE. If you’re fortunate enough to be able to add sconces to your dining room’s design, here’s a stunning option:

Country French Farmhouse Decor in Dining Room

There’s an obvious absence of anything floral in the space, and the very low contrast and spareness yields a tranquil, serene mood. White painted trim keeps things feeling pretty and elegant, and casual place settings with white dishware set a welcoming tone for everyday enjoyment.

    Enjoyed the home video you shared! It’s always fun & interesting to me to see famous people’s personal homes and get ideas! This one was interesting having them actually do the tour themselves! Your blog is SUCH a resource to me of ideas, inspiration, and helpful info…especially now in the midst of our house build! Thanks for all the time, effort, energy, and love you put into it! I’m thankful I found it! 🙂

    Well what can I say, I LOVE it all. 🙂 But I’d like to address something else in your post.

    Your comment, “All lives cannot matter until BLACK LIVES do…..” is undoubtedly true.

    But, when we single out one color, one race, one sex, one profession, one political party, one anything….then we must also remember that when we single out one group, there is also a danger of ignoring the others.

    Due to the coronavirus, advertisements honoring and singling out those in the medical profession are abundant. Yes, these people have a big job to do. But they aren’t the only ones who are working hard and rightfully deserving of our prayers and thanks. Those who never see the spotlight of “fame and claim”, those like the farmers and ranchers who tend to their crops and livestock daily to produce food, those teachers who teach tirelessly from home via internet (often while also trying to keep their small children quiet in the background), those in service industries (think for example plumbers who came to unclog your pipes because now your entire family is working and living from home all day/everyday!), those who own small mom-pop businesses, desperately working on ways to try to get some income to continue to support their families while their business was mandatorily “closed”, because it was deemed “nonessential”, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc…….. Well e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e is actually essential from my point of view and yet because someone singled out some groups of people, some people were forgotten…and worse it might even have been said “Only Essential Worker’s Lives Matter”!! :'(

    Normally I would never have left a comment like this on a beautiful blog such as yours. But with your comment, you opened it up to discussion and response. I fully suspect you may delete it and it is your blog, your choice to make. However I sincerely hope you take a moment to read it.

    We all most certainly DO need to remember that ALL lives matter. There should be no distinctions made, for it’s when those distinctions are made that the danger of exclusions begin…………..

      Thanks for reading. Your words help me understand your fears. Not sure why you “fully suspect you may delete it.” Of 11,407 comments I have probably deleted 10 for spewing hate. Humans who leave comments here seem to be gracious souls thanking me for the free content.

        I graciously and sincerely thank you for reading my comment and you are very kind for not deleting it…but I do understand this is your blog, your choice.

        Michele, all our hearts are going out to a very troubled nation. I thank you for letting us all know we must “look into the mirror”. For beginning to right the wrongs, begins inside each of us.

          I can only tell you what I am doing very imperfectly but wholeheartedly – which is beginning with transformation right where I am. It can’t be about finding the proper words or getting creative about presenting the message – I simply must do the work first (inner work and education) and let everything flow from there. It doesn’t feel comfortable at all. I am seeing that racism is in the fabric of our lives, infecting our subconscious in powerful ways. When I consider how many images on the news and in entertainment of Black men in jail or committing crimes over the years, and how little Black history and Black success, it’s staggering. Our culture is infected with racism, and the consequences are often deadly.
