Merry Little Christmas House Tour – Dining Room

I was so excited to decorate my newly-painted hutch for Christmas this year!  I love how creamy white paint makes Christmas greens and reds look even more Christmas-ey.

And fresh.

And sweet.

Nothing  looks more Christmas-ey than this little guy, though.

The hutch got most of my attention, so I kept the rest of the room pretty simple.  (I did mean to hang some ornaments from the chandelier – I need to get to that!)  The cranberries still look fresh on my popcorn wreath.

(Dash, our Elf, was hiding in the chandelier this day and I didn’t notice him until now!  I have a house full of photo bombers even when all of the C’s are at school.)

I love sharing our holiday house with you all.  I hope that you are as caught up in the magic of the season as we all are!

Much love-






  1. What a beautiful room! I love that hutch – the vignettes you created are gorgeous. And I’m drooling over your dining room table!

    • Thanks Holly! lol about the table. My blurry pictures must be doing it more justice than it deserves. I sanded the old finish off a few weeks ago, and I wrecked the top. More than a few gouges (sp?). I am at a loss with what to do with it. Do you think the stain that I used looks ok? It needs to be smoothed out and then given a poly finish. I pretty much have to wait til spring though.
      I’d love to hear your thoughts/opinions on it!

      • Just getting to checking in on my fav blogs after the holidays. :) What color stain did you use on the top? It looks fab, very RH! My table is the ugly orange pine and it must go!

  2. You are amazing!!! Thank you for sharing.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous pictures of your home. I have been enjoying them so much!! I just made the Nativity that you have on your hutch and I love it. Thank you again :)

    • Thanks Linda! That’s so cool that you made a nativity like the one I have. I bought mine at a craft show a couple of years ago. It’s one of those things that even though it might not fit the more updated (at least a little updated) style that I’m trying to achieve, I can NOT leave it in the bin. I love it too much!!!
      So glad that you stopped by!

  4. Oh, your hutch looks just beautiful! You have all the perfect, festive touches on it!


  5. Your dining room is lovely and so very festive looking! I love your hutch and the way you have decorated it. The wooden tree is also wonderful!
    Merry Christmas!
