Today like promised the kitchen and dining room.
First up the kitchen…I only did a few things in the kitchen. Of course I had to do something to my bulletin board. This is what it looked like for Thanksgiving.
This is what it looks like for Christmas.
(The cranberries were leftover from Thanksgiving and used in the living room too!)
I also added a few Christmas touches to the console table I recently refinished.
For some reason I find myself buying pinecones and picking up pinecones when I’m out on walks, seriously I have a lot and I keep bringing them home thinking I don’t have any so there are pinecones scattered throughout the house at Christmas.
On the way to the dining room is a small wall that got dressed up too.
Here’s a closer look of him. My decorating style is a little bit all over the place, I’m learning that I love to use natural elements but I like to glam it up so spraying this guy gold brings together the 2 things I love. I also bought a wood plaque and sprayed it gold and attached the deer to it.
Onto the dining room…last year for Christmas Drew and Sloan bought me some really pretty textiles from Williams Sonoma so obviously I had to use it. It’s not gold and silver like my living room but like I said before I don’t think you can ever go wrong with traditional red and gold.
I swapped out my normal china in the cabinet for my Christmas dishes. For the table I decided use eucalyptus, berries and go figure some pinecones! The look is a bit more natural then a fake centerpiece but without the cost of fresh flowers that will die in a few days.
My Antropologie knock offs! So easy to make and of course less then the $38.00 they cost at the store. I had the jars already and simply bought some miniature trees at Michaels and some fake snow. You can find them in the area where the Christmas villages are. I hot glued the trees to the bottom of the lids, added the snow to the jar (along with some silver glitter) put the lid on the jar and tapped the snow to go to the bottom of the jar.
As always, I want to thank you all for stopping by and for all the nice emails I get! You guys rock! xo
Tomorrow the front porch!
