Red Barn + Christmas Decorating Ideas in the Kitchen

Do you remember that beautiful red barn I photographed in the summer (seen here)?

Well, I had 2 big empty spots on my living room wall when I sold the repurposed drawer shelves (seen here) so I made 2 canvas photos to fill the empty spaces.

I took the barn photo, and our current family photo to Staples, where they turned them into engineering prints for me.

When I got  back home, I turned the engineering prints into photo canvases (tutorial here) and hung them on  the gallery wall in my living room (our current family photo is on the lower left side, and the red barn photo is on the lower right side).

Once Christmas is over, I’ll switch out the Silent Night print in the center of the wall for a different image (it can be removed from the frame).

I did spend a little extra to have the barn photo printed as a color poster (it cost about $12), because I wanted to hang it in my kitchen for Christmas.

This wall in my kitchen changes at least once a month.  I’m constantly switching out what is displayed on  top of the shelf, and what is hanging under it.

I’m using an enamelware pitcher as a table centerpiece.

Right now, the shelf has my upcycled clementine crate on it, which I added on of my stencil designs on.

The flower pots stay in the crate year-round, so I just added some pine tree cuttings and curled ribbon in them.

I love how the barn really pops against the white wall.

I hung my wreath on the sliding barn door that separates the entryway from the living room.

I am SO glad we have that door!  Our house is staying much warmer now that the cold air from the entryway can’t come into the rest of the house.

Since the wreath will dry out soon, I plan to find a faux wreath to hang later, because I really love how it looks on the door.

I switched out the autumn flowers for a fresh poinsettia in my rusty  kettle.

Would you believe I only paid 25 cents for that kettle at a yard sale?

I bought the vintage Christmas ornaments in the summer, and completely forgot about them, but my husband found them last week and got them out for me.

That wraps up my kitchen decorating for Christmas, and I’m almost finished with the rest of the house too, thank goodness!

Have you finished all your decorating yet, or am I the last one?
