Hey Everyone! Welcome to my Christmas home tour 2014! I’m so excited to be part of the Holiday Home Tour this year hosted by Kendra at Joy In Our Home!
Now let’s get started! 🙂
We’re a bit unusual in that instead of our entryway bench being located right by an entryway door, it is pretty much right smack in the middle of our downstairs level across from the family room. I find this works best for us as well as guests providing easy access to purses, backpacks and the like. But I do tend to crowd out some of the useable space when I decorate it for the holidays! I love to decorate the top of the bench! And it’s so easy to switch out the decorations for the seasons. I especially love the weather vane! The milk jug almost always has something sticking out of the top of it, depending on the season! This time it’s fallen redwood branches decked out in stringed pearls and ornaments! I rounded everything out by sticking some redwood greenery around burlap and lace tied pillows and a redwood sway hung inside a old wine barrel ring!
Our family room is located directly across from the entryway bench. I just refinished the entertainment center and I’m really happy with how it turned out! I will be posting about how I did it in the near future, so stay tuned! 🙂 When I got the entertainment center finished, I was so excited to finally have a place to display some of my late grandfather’s antiques and some of my flea market finds! 🙂 We bought this door for our house when we were building it, but it turned out to be the wrong size and we never got around to returning it. Might as well put it to some use! 🙂
Last but not least, our living room! We just recently repainted our interior walls, so we are still working on getting window treatments and wall décor back up. At least there’s nothing to distract from the Christmas decorations! 🙂
If you like the burlap and button Christmas trees below, you can find the tutorial for it here. I hope you’ve enjoyed my Christmas home tour for 2014! Please make sure to check out all the other awesome tours in the Holiday Home Tour at the blogs listed below!
