Welcome to our cabin. Kick your feet up and take a look around our
Christmas Dining Room.
The Dining table and chairs came from an old library, they are solid oak.
A local school went out of business and had an auction. I was the lucky winner
of the table and 8 chairs for under $200.
Everything is done very simple, and easy this year.
A small tree in a galvanized bucket sits in the center of the table.
To give it a little color I used some gingham fabric around the bottom of the tree and some multi colored twin around the trees branches.
I loaded our vintage laundry hamper with Christmas dishes, flatware, and a string of lights.
I just love the look of the lights amongst the dishes.
To dress up the chandy I added paper shaded and hot glued red rick rack around the edge. I also used recycled ribbon bows for just a little extra color.
A simple grain sack runner was added to the table. And that vintage green beauty in the background is my new found treasure.
It is some sort of a metal locker, and I love it. It fits perfect in that space, and I can decorate it according to the seasons.
Right now it holds a few Christmas thing and a few kitchen things.
I am very happy with the simplicity of it all.
I haven’t felt the stress of Christmas at all this season.
Here’s a view showing you how high our ceilings are, and the wreaths on the french doors are straw wrapped in burlap.
