Simple cedar Christmas decor

Not much progress on the DIY Diva Den this week, other than finding the perfect legs to raise the desk up. What did get done around the house was a little decorating for Christmas. This year I opted for cedar and gold, and I love the simplicity (and the smell!).

The pink walls work so nicely with all the green too! (much better than last year’s mantle too!) I am so in love with the little birds on the mantle. I picked those up with the girls at Aberfoyle Antique Market when I got the apple picking ladder.

We’ve got a nice big cedar swag over the door from the hallway to the living room, cedar on the mantle, and some cedar in with gold branches on the TV unit. Super sleuths will notice the TV unit has changed. The super awesome vintage unit I painted is now upstairs in the DIY Diva Den. We got this awesome IKEA unit, since it’s much sturdier with a giant TV on it. DH told me the vintage one would fall over and we would have a dead dog. His scare tactics work folks.

I can’t wait to get our Christmas tree in a few weeks! Our annual tradition of my BFF and her family coming for the weekend continues, which is always a hoot:)

ps. there’s even some cedar in the main floor powder room🙂
