We are FINALLY finished decorating for Christmas. I think.
I have a hard time stopping. I just want Kitschmas greatness all over the house!
I seem to have a fondness (bordering on obsession) with shadow boxes. This is one of 2 in the main bath:
This window in that bathroom was one of the selling features of this home for me. I just love to decorate that wide marble ledge:
Here is another shadowbox in the basement. Also one of a pair:
This wooden Santa, his sleigh and reindeer have been in Hubbys family since the 50′s. It fits perfect on the basement coffee table. This is the first year for the aluminum tree
I stole this idea from someone else’s Mid-Century blog. I made these from assorted sized dowel rods. I think they add a little something cool to the kitchen:
Here are the new pulls on the fireplace built ins. I got these mid-century gems on Etsy for $3 each
How about these Kitschy Christmas Cards? These were bought on Ebay and at an estate sale this past summer. I cannot wait to sit by that aluminum tree and address them:
A few months ago I showed you a $7 chair from the thrift store; not too impressive, huh?
Well here it is NOW!
Doesn’t it look great in the living room? I had the fabric left over from another project and just reversed it. I then spray painted the arms and legs with paint I already had. My total cost for this extra seating was less than $60.
I reworked a large wreath that I had at the farmhouse for the front porch. Instead of lights it is illuminated by a spot light:
This vintage bookcase is now a pretend bar cabinet near the entry. The mirror and lamp are IKEA.
Here is the finished fireplace wall in the living room:
I hope everyone is having a great Christmas season so far.
I cannot wait to start wrapping. I will have to show you some of my vintage wrapping paper hoard next time.
