Welcome my sweet friends! Last week I shared my Christmas Courtyard decked for the Holidays, and today I am back to share the inside of my home as part of the Home for the Holidays Christmas home tour!
Here is my entryway that I already shared…
Come on in…
As you enter, you face our stairwell. I found this metal wall art this Summer at a yard sale for $5. I painted it in the Spring, and it’s perfect to display wreaths for the seasons…
Just to the right you’ll be led into the dining room…
The stunning carpet is from Shaw Carpets. The dining set was an $85 thrift store score.
My mantel has a “Two Turtle Doves” theme as part of the Twelve Days of Christmas Tour. I kept the theme going in the dining room by incorporating feathers into the centerpiece:
You can see how simple it was to put together here.
This was my China Cabinet I purchased shortly after I was married. I was about to put it out for my neighborhood’s annual yard sale when I decided instead to paint it. Annie Sloan paint brought it right up to date!
I continued the turtle dove theme with the addition of these sweet birds in these little last minute arrangements I made out of old bathroom globes. I purchased the birds and the centerpiece feathers at JoAnn Fabrics.
I decorated around my thrift store ironstone finds…
This ironstone creamer is perfect for a tiny arrangement:
Our home is one big open floor plan with only the staircase to break up the downstairs space. If you continue around you’ll enter the kitchen.
It got a new paint job this Summer. So glad that job is done! You can see the dreary before here.
I just added a few Holiday touches to the kitchen…like the boxwood wreath to the cabinet door, and the tree in the window box…
…and this sweet deer from TJ Maxx. My four year old keeps stealing the candy canes…need to move them out of reach of sticky little fingers!
Between the kitchen and living area, is this cozy spot I like to curl up in …
A festive wreath on my DIY mirror and a lighted arrangement on the table add a little holiday flare to this spot. The cozy blankets and sweater pillow will keep us warm all Winter. My magazines are hidden under the blanket. 🙂
You can really see how open our floorplan is here…as in NO walls…
The cabinet in the foreground above is pictured below. It was a thrift store sewing cabinet, and holds my machine and all my notions.
Gold shatter-proof ornaments are used in several places to add a bit of bling for not a lot of dough. I bought a couple of large containers of them at Walmart for less than $5 each.
Another ironstone piece holds this simple touch of greenery…
Continuing to the left is our fireplace:
The glass candelabras are thrift store dessert dishes glued bottom to top. They were originally part of my Pottery Barn-inspired Halloween Mantel (very cool if you haven’t seen it!), and I decided to keep them around a little while longer.
This little sweater deer hanging out on my Coffee Table is a favorite find from last year at Target.
cheapo shatter-proof ornaments are looking very festive in my hurricane glass container from Kirklands…
And finally… the tree…oh my poor poor tree. There was a little accident involving the tree late Sunday afternoon. If you follow me on instagram, you already know…
Can you say naked backside? I think the ornaments I crammed on the front must have weighed it down. But, with my sweet hubby’s help and perseverance, we got it back together.
I wasn’t joking about the ornaments weighing it down though…
I cram that baby full! No shame here.
Look how pretty Google+ Auto Awesome made my Christmas Tree look:
I love that! Thanks, Google+!
And that wraps up my 2014 Christmas Home Tour!
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
