Update an old table with a creative paint job featuring dipped legs. Then repurpose a Christmas tree skirt as a table cover. A matching stocking, a red pendant light, Christmas ornaments, and handmade accents complete the effect. For a centerpiece, assemble candleholders from pieces of millwork and deck the walls with tree artwork you can make.
Refreshing whites are key to creating a Nordic ambience. We flanked the snowy sofa with matching lampshades on icy-clear lamp bases and mounted white wreaths on the wall. Sweater-knit and textural pillows along with patterned-knit tabletop trees add color, while an area rug adds warmth underfoot.
Attach boards and dowels to a pine backing to create shelves that form a tree shape. When the Christmas holidays are over, rearrange the dowels and shelves to create a season-neutral display shelf.
Corral firewood and kindling in an attractive storage shelter you can make using window wells and lumber.
