It's a really an old chicken feeder. Doesn't really scream dining room table at first glance...by the looks of the next photo, right?
I love how long this is. Since our dining room table it longer than most, most of the runners and centerpieces I find don't do the trick, but both of these worked perfect!
I added the same greenery to the top of my dumpster dive wine rack!
And plus a set of "twinkle lights" on a timer which I got on super duper clearance after Christmas...and voila!
It adds a nice twinkle light in the evening when we are relaxing!
I love it. It can easily be switched out to flame-less candles, or as a succulent planter! It would look cute in the early Spring with my golden buns! I even thought about it going on our fireplace mantle in the winter filled with evergreen snips or pinecones...
I did some pin-searching and found there are a TON of other people doing the same thing with chicken feeders on pinterest.

Centerpiece is a flea market find.
Greenery Garland is from Hobby Lobby

Check out the pottery barn look alike wine rack above the China cabinet that was found in the dumpster!
Do you have anything that originally in a barn in your house?
What else can I do with my new chicken feeder!?
