One Room…Many Ways

This little room right off of the dining room really doesn’t have a function and gets a makeover more often than any other room in our home. As in…made over on a nearly monthly basis…since I like to re-arrange and move things around so often. Here’s a look at this room’s decorating history…

It started off looking like this when we bough our home:

We installed French doors, slate tile and a rescued a giant mirror…

Sometimes it displays my latest thrifty treasures…

Or acts as an extension to our dining space…

At Christmas time, it’s my favorite space to decorate…

Here’s what the other side of the room currently looks like: {wall mounted pallet shelf}

It’s like playing with a life sized doll house. Do you switch it up routinely?

Christmas in the sitting room

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the DIY Show Off home! We have an odd room we often label the sitting room that sits right off of our dining room. It’s probably the room that gets rearranged most in our home, as I’ve shared in the past…

Now that I’ve shared some projects for a new sitting room look this week, I wanted to put it all in one post to show the entire area.

I’ve been snapping pictures every day for about two weeks, different times of the day, different manual settings, with a tripod…photography is hard work when the lighting is tricky and the French doors have been making it a challenge. But here goes the best I could do…

Be prepared, there are a LOT of pictures.

  •  table is made from a small cushioned stool and an old window

  • candle ring with chalkboard message makes for a nice festive door knob

  • Christmas vignette:

Every time I decorate this little area, it’s my favorite space. I can’t decide what my favorite part is:  painted chairs, His & Hers pillows, barrel side table, window coffee table, eclectic vignette…the entire room is comfortable and cozy. What do you think? Do you have a small area for quiet conversations or reading?

I’m sharing a bit of my Christmas home tour over at Unskinny Boppy today kicking off her Home for the Holidays series.
