Christmas kitchen junk home tour!
When one reaches the home tour stage at my place, it’s just about time to hang up the hammer for a spell! I plan to take time off in between Christmas and New Years this year, something I haven’t done in a LONG time! But with no breaks this year, it’s overdue and needed.
But I’m going out with a BANG! Today I’m sharing my kitchen decked out for Christmas with lots of new ideas, then cya back tomorrow where I’ll be sharing the grand finale living room tour with the fireplace and very. big. tree!
On with the kitchen tour!
I honestly think this is my fav Christmas kitchen to date, thanks to the natural colors…

Christmas kitchen junk home tour!
The kitchen layout
To give you the lay of the land, my entire upstairs is open concept. So the angled island sits pretty much in the center of the upstairs.
On one side of the kitchen are the woodsy rustic cabinets offering loads of cozy warmth.
Hot Cocoa Appliance Garage
The Hot Cocoa Appliance Garage is busy pulling double duty lookin’ cute while working hard hiding all my coffee gear! I’ve since added hanging cups to one side which comes in really handy.
See how the Hot Cocoa Appliance Garage works in THIS POST.
And along the other wall is a bank of 3 kitchen windows facing the mountain view out back. Windows never get old. If you can swing it, do it!
But you may have noticed a few new things going on here…
Do you remember my red then blue skis from last year?
They have made another appearance, but this time, in a gorgeous shade of Fusion Mineral Paint’s Bayberry!
View the Christmas Sweater stencil HERE
Aren’t they beautiful? I love the sage green with the Christmas Sweater pattern on them!
It’s something fresh and different!
Which sets the stage for the rest of the decor…
About the ceiling:
The faux metal ceiling panels are made from hand cut mdf, then painted black to resemble metal panels. The rivets are wood plugs.
Seedling Christmas trees in galvanized buckets
The color scheme I used throughout the entire house this Christmas is wood, green and black.
The black ornaments above were spray painted, which you can read about in THIS post.
The cute seedling trees were picked up from Hobby Lobby last Christmas.
Frosted vintage window
While I ADORE those skis, this window was a last minute thought and ended up being my favorite feature!
If you look closely, the window looks iced up! And it is! But it’s faux. And really easy to do!
How to add frost to a window:
- Clean window, then lay flat with the front facing down.
- Spray Crystal Frost spray on the glass and allow to dry.
- As the spray dries, ice crystals form!
I use to use the crystal frost spray on regular windows in the house. And while it works great, it can be a little fussy to remove. So I felt using it on a vintage window would be easier so I can wash it off under a tap.
And if you spray the back of the window, it’ll be better protected as it can scratch up. Or in my case, get splashed on.
The beautiful wood snowflake is a gift from Pauline from My Altered State from many years ago. You can watch how she makes a different one in THIS POST ON YOUTUBE!
The window frost certainly is a breathtaking effect, isn’t it? I love that the sunlight can still penetrate through it. It would make a great privacy screen effect!
A cozy kitchen island
Moving over to the kitchen island, I had just landed this lovely black plaid table runner at a thrift store. It was the perfect size!
So an antique crate with a candle pedestal inside holds 3 candles with fresh cut evergreen branches (from my tree!).
Teamed up with a couple of deer antlers and scrap wood trees in presents, it’s casual, woodsy and rustic!
Scrap wood trees in presents
The scrap wood trees in presents (shown HERE) look SO good, no matter where they are placed!
I also brought up this little black painted side table. You may remember the side table with houndstooth panels from THIS POST.
Because the panels are removable, it’s fun to change up the look to plain again!
Well friends, that wraps up my Christmas kitchen junk home tour!
But I have one sneak peek for you that’s continuing tomorrow…
That there is the new Christmas tree. It’s massive! And in the middle of the house! Which gave me an all new living room layout. Cya tomorrow for the final living room tour!
Which feature did you enjoy the most in this tour? I’d love to hear!
