My Ever-Changing Dining Room Shelf

Ever since we put this dining room shelf up (Christmas of 2011) a little over a year ago, it has become my go-to place for decorating. I love that I can see this shelf from the kitchen, dining room and living room. It makes my whole house feel festive and focusing most of my efforts on one wall gives me a lot of bang for my buck.

I thought it would be fun to go back and check out the shelf’s many transformations.

Next up St. Patrick’s day! Last year my sister got married on St. Patrick’s day. You can check out my wedding crashing post here. That big event had me a little preoccupied so I never did get to do a St. Patrick’s Day shelf. You can click on any of the pictures to find the post and get more details if anything strikes your fancy.

Do you have a decorating spot? That one place where you change it up and add a little holiday flair?

    I love your shelf! What a great idea for people without a fireplace mantel or for people like me (giant screen about my mantel)!

    Can you tell me where or how you got this beautiful wood shelf?

      Hi Julie! The husband made it.
