Creating Christmas-My Rustic Dining Room



Welcome, everyone!  I'm so excited that Jann asked me to be a part of her Creating Christmas Link Party this year!

My theme is 'Rustic Christmas.'
It's no secret that I LOVE incorporating a  rustic vibe to my decor...rough wood, chippy patina, rusty metal, and the raw simplicity of vintage items really speak to me!  (Aka Good Junk!)

My dining room is one of my favorite rooms to decorate for Christmas as the pale green walls and dark green painted floor create a perfect backdrop.  This space really reflects the rustic aesthetic, and this holiday season I've used a lot of natural elements such as greenery and pinecones, along with some splashes of red for festivity.

I hope that you enjoy this tour of my 'rustic' dining room!















































































Thanks again to Jann for including me in 'Creating Christmas'!  I hope that you'll join in and link up your holiday decor here, then be sure to visit the others the rest of this week!
Have a wonderful day :)
