Welcome back elves! I am popping back in with another quick post on holiday decorating today. We got the master bedroom all dressed up for Christmas the last time we were together, and today we are going to do the same for three small spaces here. So if you are ready, let’s get started!
We are moving our decorating party on into the master bathroom by adding a pretty red tray and a simple amaryllis to the top of the dresser.
I know that doesn’t sound like much, but I really prefer the decorations in these areas to be understated. Are you thinking we need a garland up there on the drapes or perhaps a wreath in the window? Just wait, I will add more to the other part of the bathroom. Okay?
Now do you remember that I painted the interior of the bathroom’s antique cupboard yellow a few months ago? It looked like this:
Don’t you think it needs to be red for Christmas? Good thing I saved those pieces of beadboard that my husband painted red last year. 🙂 Within 2 minutes our yellow backed cupboard changes into red.
What a difference that makes! We’ll wrap the bars of soap in gold foil and put them back in the jar on the top shelf. Then we will add some greenery to the top and a couple of red bows….
And now the master bathroom is dressed for the season. 🙂
Now let’s move to the kids’ bathroom. It has a shower curtain and window panels made from black and white gingham. To add some contrast, let’s add some green in there. (I bet you thought I was going to say red. 🙂 )
A green Christmas tree in a jar and a gift tied with green ribbon are two easy touches.
The chalkboard was black, but I painted it green for another spot of color in the room.
And the same goes for the wicker in there. It had all been black, but I spray painted it green. That’s it for the kids’ bath, so we can check it off our list. 🙂
Now for today’s last holiday decorating project…the little bedroom hallway. We’ll hang a wreath in the window first by tying it to the drapery rod with some wide red grosgrain ribbon.
Last month I made a new cushion for the hallway bench with leftover scraps of black and white gingham, and I recycled the red cording that was around the blue plaid one there. For our Christmas decorating by the bench, we get the red metal basket out of the attic, weave a red ribbon through it again like last year, and fill it with our collection of children’s Christmas books.
A couple of books on top of the bench along with a toy train make it an even more merry spot. 🙂
And that finishes our work for today.
Three more spaces are now ready for Christmas, and we will move on into our daughter’s bedroom the next time we get together here.
Thank you for coming along with me today! I hope you have a fun and productive weekend in store on this first official weekend of December. Did any of you happen to see this movie when it opened last night?
I’m thinking it might be a good Christmas one to see this weekend. 🙂
Until next time…
