Happpppy Saturday my friends! So I don’t want to stress anyone out, but do you realize Christmas Eve is just two weeks from today?! Crazy, I know. I’m not even close to being ready. Not.Even.Close. In fact, I haven’t even started my shopping yet. Or sent out Christmas cards. I’m so bad. But I’m not going to worry about that right now because I’m excited to be sharing our cozy farmhouse Christmas basement tour today. I’ve been slowly piecing this area together over the past several weeks, so I’m thrilled to finally see it done and ready for Christmas. This is actually where we’ll be opening presents on Christmas morning, and probably spending most of the day in our PJs eating all the yummy things, so I wanted the basement to be really warm and inviting. I’ve got lots of pictures to share, so let’s get to it!
If you follow me on Instagram you saw a little peek of this tree in my stories last weekend. I was totally on the fence about getting another tree for the basement, but I’m so glad we did. A real tree just adds so much warmth and coziness. I really wanted to leave the tree bare, not using any lights or ornaments, just to admire it’s beauty without any distractions. I’ve never left a tree bare like this, but I actually LOVE it. And how cool is that old porcelein tub?! I found it while out junkin’ last summer–it’s actually an antique wash basin. I was literally jumping around like a crazy person when I realized our tree stand fit inside. Score!
Ok, how stinkin’ cute is the Christmas Tree Farm sign? This may be my favorite part of the entire basement. It’s from FarmHome Decor and the awesome thing about their products is that everything is made in the USA. That’s a big plus in my book. You can find this sign here.
I found this sled at a glorified barn sale last summer. It’s a pretty crazy story, so go check out that post if you haven’t read it. This sled has a little damage, but overall it’s still in really good condition.
I just had to add a bit of garland to the kids’ playhouse!
We spend so much time in this basement and I’m so happy it’s finally decorated for Christmas. This is such a warm and cozy area and I have to say it’s probably my favorite space in the whole house. With my old sled, the Christmas Tree Farm sign, and the bare Christmas tree–I love it all. I can’t wait to watch the kids open their gifts here on Christmas morning! Well I hope you enjoyed today’s post. I hope you’re all having a blessed and happy holiday season!
