Christmas Project Inspiration

This past weekend I posted this picture on Instagram (@athomewiththebarkers) as part of a fun hashtag showcasing Christmas past…

Now I know, there are many of you out there who just aren’t ready to decorate for the Holidays just yet but please hang with me on this one. (Don’t worry, I do have some Thanksgiving post for this month too!)

Just like magazines, bloggers must be a little ahead of the game when it comes to decorating, after all we are here to inspire you! If I waited until after Thanksgiving to start sharing my decorating ideas, projects and tutorial you may miss out on something fun that you could be doing now in order to be completely ready to decorate when the time comes.

Really, since I am not one to leave my decorations up past December doing it now is ok with me.

I haven’t started posting new projects just yet BUT they are coming before Thanksgiving. I’m planning some post that will help you be prepared with your decorating. This will allow you to enjoy the season!

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you the Christmas project inspiration from the above picture. Once I posted it on my Instagram I received lots a questions about items in the photo. I thought this would be a great time share with you links to all of those projects.

In case you are looking to complete more home projects before you start your decorating, the wood plank mantel makeover would be a great one. It’s an easy, one day project and it makes a BIG impact in a space. Plus, it will make your Christmas decor stand out even more. See the mantel makeover HERE.

SO, ready or not…it’s almost here!!
