Today I’m taking you on a Fall tour of our fireplace room.
I love this time of year.
It’s still sunny on some days but has that chill in the air that has transitioned into fall.
The beauty of the leaves turning colors is breathtaking.
Don’t you agree?
Hanging out in this fireplace room is a big part of our day when we’re home.
Cozying up to the fireplace in the early hours of the morning makes for a great start to what lies ahead in the day.
And then getting it good and hot for our toes after being outdoors in the cold.
It’s been an awesome space for my family.
Do you have a place you like to get cozy for fall?
Here is a view into my fireplace room.
I love to make my decorating easy. Especially during busy seasons.
Today I will be sharing a tour of our Fall decorations in our fireplace room.
The letters T – E – A is what you’ll see before you enter.
I’m a big fan of tea and love my brimming hot cup of bergamot tea.
Do you have a favorite tea?
I painted the above letters with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White.
You can see a video from my YouTube channel below where I share my Thrift finds. These letters use to be red. Watch the video to see what they cost and looked like before.
The above photo is of my antique Victorian sofa. I did a total makeover of this gorgeous rustic sofa a few weeks ago. Here’s a link if you’d like instructions how to paint a fabric antique sofa, here.
I have two black iron sconces on both sides of the black framed mirror. I bought these from Etsy.
On the sofa is a farmhouse pillow cover that has off white canvas fabric with bluish gray stripes down the middle.
It doesn’t show in this photo but behind the pillow covers is a blue and white ticked fabric. If you seen them in real life, they are absolutely comfy, soft and are the perfect farmhouse style that I love.
I added some fall touches by writing FALL on a black chalkboard and propping it just below the antique mirror.
Plus, I placed a Victorian vase on the floor with some Fall flowers in orange and off white.
On the sofa there is a Fall pillow that says, hand picked farm fresh pumpkins. I don’t have a link for this pillow since I bought it last year.
Don’t you think the pillow is so simple and sweet?
In the photo below, you can see this area better.
I wanted to balance the room with black since on the other side is a black chalkboard in an antique mantle frame.
You can see that below soon.
I love how this turned out. Especially getting my husbands help was a blessing.
He is such an amazing guy who loves precision and things to be straight.
We balance each other out cause I am a wing it kind of gal.
I think this turned out better than I imagined.
You can probably see a bright light in the left corner shining in this picture.
That’s because I’m needing to add a lamp of some sort eventually. I’m on the search for the perfect one.
Until then this works.
Here’s an up close photo below of an antique WWII Navy Panoramic framed picture. I bought this from Etsy.
I am grateful for our US military. The brave men and women who fought and died to keep this country free will forever be honored in my heart, always.
It feels good to have something authentic from WWll. It was a great find.
Here is a full view of my fireplace room.
The tan jute area rug is from Rugs USA. Most of our jute rugs come from there.
I’m loving the combination of the colors tan and grey. It has a muted soft neutral look.
The huge window in this room is perfect for bringing in natural light.
On the mantle I have two silver candelabras. I found them at Goodwill for $6.99 each.
Here is a post where I share 2 different ways to polish silver, here.
And a taller silver candle holder in the back.
I placed two white and one green pumpkin in front of some bright colored leaf stems.
In the back I have a huge chunky gold framed mirror I found at Goodwill for $19.99. Another amazing find.
On top of that is an old French Quarter framed wall art from Michaels many years ago.
Victorian young woman oil painting.
When my husband and I were first married, there was a yard sale in the neighborhood where we lived.
This magnificent Victorian oil painting was for sale with a masking tape across the front that said, $2.00.
At the time, I had no idea what drew me to buy that.
It was the first thing I bought that was vintage for our home.
For years I carried this oil painting from home to home. It was unframed and beginning to warp a bit.
My husband noticed it and had his friend, Dale, who had a framing business, to frame it for me for my birthday.
It was the most thoughtful gift and I still am so grateful for my husband’s thoughtfulness.
He’s a good man.
Chalk painted chairs.
This is my famous chalk painted fabric chair.
It has been viewed more than anything I’ve posted here on my blog.
Especially on Pinterest.
You can see my most looked at post here. It’s an easy step by step tutorial of how to paint a fabric chair for beginners.
As you can see, there’s a theme here with the colors of my chairs.
The one below was also painted with the Annie Sloan chalk paint in Paris Grey.
They all coordinate together beautifully.
I have guests ask me how we got our furniture to be the same color?
It definitely is a talking point in discussions.
The antique chair below is one of my favorites. It’s my morning chair where I drink my coffee and sometimes write for my blog.
Fireplace mantle chalkboard.
This fireplace mantle was almost garbage after I brought it home from a thrift store.
I propped it up sideways in the back of my old suburban. By the time I brought it home, it was broken.
It was the most disappointing moment for sure.
My amazing husband grabbed some wood glue and some clamps and brought it back life.
I was so happy!
It’s more solid with the glue and one of my favorite pieces to use for all the seasons.
I painted it with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White. I took some sandpaper and gave it a chippy look.
It turned out to be my all time favorite DIY!
I placed an array of pumpkins at the base.
On each side, I put creamy white leafed stems.
I love how it is decorated for fall. With the saying I found off of Pinterest.
Below is a bookshelf.
I’ve been slowly collecting old vintage classic books. With the black, green, brown and blue linen cloth binding.
I don’t know why but there is something about the smell of old books that is nostalgic and takes me back to the many hours hanging out at our library.
It is still a fun thing to do and go to our local library.
Do you like to go to the library?
Our tan Ikea loveseat.
I originally bought this loveseat off of Craiglist and it had a white cover.
You can imagine over time, it became dirty.
Although it did last for many years after being washed multiple times.
Did you know the secret about putting Ikea covers on furniture?
When you wash the covers, take it out of the dryer after 20 minutes while it is damp.
Put the covers on the sofa, chair, ottoman or loveseat (whichever you have) while damp.
Don’t sit on it and let it dry overnight.
By the next day it will be completely dry. But the best part? It was easy to put on and no wrinkles.
What an amazing discovery to hear this.
It has made it so much easier to wash these covers and put them on. My hands would be so sore after putting them on when completely dry.
This new tan cover was $50 at Ikea. Super cheap. And it has a soft loose fabric that has been a cinch to keep clean.
These floral pillows are scrumptious!
It’s hard to see it in these photos but they are all the colors of my home.
Blue, creamy white, white, green, grey and tan.
I bought 3 of them off of Etsy. They are thick linen. I’m loving these so much.
The little brown oblong pillow with a burlap trim was what I added as an easy fall color.
I have a link for that here.
Vintage wood radio.
You wouldn’t believe this was vintage when you hear it when it’s on.
It is so loud!
The photo below does not do this justice.
Seeing it in real life and appreciating the yummy mahogany wood makes this old radio such a fun addition to our fireplace room. It’s great!
Three little pumpkins rest in front for the fall season.
Such an easy way to decorate for fall.

Thanks for coming by Victorian Lane Farms.
I hope you enjoyed this tour.
It was great sharing my fall decorated fireplace room.
Have a wonderful week.
Until next time, by for now.
