Well, I figure since he let me decorate a room before Thanksgiving, I should share it with you all before Thanksgiving. We picked up this cute little shabby chic Christmas tree from Target the other day. I just loved how cute and sparse it is...plus the burlap base -who could pass up the burlap base? It was on sale for $100 but I had a few coupons and what not and got it for around $75. Probably could have spent a lot less to get a different tree in here, but I knew this would look so perfect.
Oh! And plus, this is the first time y'all get to look at my front room since the big switcheroo that happened this summer! Wow. I can't believe it's been that long and I haven't shown you this room yet. Which is really pathetic because it has been pretty much like this (minus the christmas decor) since the switch, but I just had nothing to put in the corner that the tree is in. So, I decided to make a cute console table. And I got half way done with it and it's been sitting in the garage ever since. That's like 4 months ever since :/ Yeah. Master of procrastination here :) So, really once this tree is gone, the room is back to be 'unfinished' in my eyes. Maybe I'll finish that table before that happens....maybe :)
I really love how cozy this room feels though. It really came together. At first, I was hating the way it looked but that was because I didn't have the right rug. Figures all you need to pull a room together is a rug. I did have just the two sheep skin rugs under the stumps...looked ridiculous. SO ridiculous lol. Then I found this cute Rug at Target and boom! That's all it took to get this room looking decent.
|don't mind the pup that is all of these pictures. He likes the spotlight...or he's just lazy ;)|
As for the Christmas decor, I decided to add some texture in here with some pillows made from an old sweater (tutorial here). I super love this! I was going to save this sweater to make a stocking or two, but I'm so glad I made these instead.
The pine cones hanging are something I had made years ago for my stairs. But I thought they would look cute hanging over the pictures in here.
And my chalkboard...I can't bring myself to erase the "welcome". I know I should go ahead and do it, but I'm afraid I'll never get it looking so cute :) I want to put Merry Christmas on it...we'll see if that ever happens lol.
The jute trees are ones I made years ago (tutorial here) and still love them, and they are holding up beautifully.
Now we'll see how the real tree in the living room goes. I'm sure the little babe will have a riot with those decorations lol. I can see it now...my tree will probably be only half decorated :) Full on the top...empty on the bottom. Welcome to parenthood :) She's already had her way with the presents under this tree. You can't see it in the pictures, but the back corners are completely chewed off lol.
Well, that's a little glimpse into my home for Christmas this year...hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!!!
