I’m so excited to be sharing my Christmas home tour with you today! And doubly excited to be the surprise house for today on Jennifer Rizzo’s holiday housewalk! This year’s tour is packed with gorgeous homes. Just take a look at At the Picket Fence’s tour! Just beautiful!
Alright, now on to my home tour! Let’s start in the living room, shall we?!
Our living room is where we spend most of our time.
I went pretty simple with our Christmas decor this year. Mostly because I have two little girls and three pets that love to tear our house apart on a daily basis!
Speaking of pets, this little guy hung out with me all day while I photographed the room. He sure is cute when he’s not being naughty!
This sign is one of my favorite additions this year. I made it from barn wood and I just love the rustic, vintage feel of it. I can’t wait to share the tutorial soon!
This wreath pillow is from last year. I almost brought it to my booth to sell it, but my daughter wanted to keep it. I’m kind of glad she talked me out of selling it! It works perfectly right next to the tree!
Our Christmas tree has kind of a rustic feel this year. Mu husband and I built the box for it this year instead of doing a tree skirt. Once the tree was up, I filled it with cotton bolls (found here), pine cones, german statice, jingle bell garland, and handmade plaid ribbon.
Moving across the living room, I loved setting this area up. We usually have absolutely nothing on this wall, so it was fun to fill it up. I’m especially loving the barn wood planks. I might just have to leave them there year round!
And this wreath from Balsam Hill is just gorgeous! I’m so glad I got a couple of them this year!
Can you believe these skis were only $3 at a garage sale a couple summers ago? I stripped most of the flaky paint off of them and gave them a more rustic look. I’m so in love with them! (You can see the before and after here.)
And here is our dining room. I randomly found an evergreen bush in our backyard when I was thinking of how to fill this vintage toolbox. Can you tell how often I go in our backyard?! I clipped a few branches, added some pine cones, and was all set!
I have to point out the tea towel art on the wall, too. My friend, Kelly from The Lily Pad Cottage, inspired me to throw this together. It was totally last minute, but I saw the towel in my drawer and thought it would be a perfect pop of red for that wall. I had my husband build me a frame for it out of an old 2×4 we pulled out of the basement, I used a little watered down Curio milk paint as a stain, sealed it with hemp oil, and hung it up! I just taped the towel to the back of the frame, so I can get it out later, if I want. But since it had been sitting in a drawer and I was too afraid to mess it up, it will probably stay on the wall for a while!
This little art display I like to call my Christmas tree forest only took me 3 or 4 days to complete! Ha! It was kind of a pain to hand embroider all of these trees, but I really love the look of all of them together! (You can see the tutorial here.)
The last stop on my little tour is my basement. It’s not fully decorated yet, but I did get a couple (faux) pine swags on the doors. And yes, I have yet to actually “reveal” the doors and do a before and after. It still might happen … one of these days!
That’s all from me! Thank you so much for stopping by our home!
Don’t stop here! Be sure to check out the next house on the tour – My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia! I promise, you won’t be disappointed!
