New Shelves In My Kitchen All Decked Out For Christmas

| | | |

Come see how I decorated my new kitchen shelves for Christmas! The farmhouse open shelves are perfect for rustic holiday decor!

I’m excited to be able to share my rustic Christmas decorations with you this year!  We had only been in our new-to-house for a couple of months when Christmas rolled around last year and we were in the midst of a total remodel, so I didn’t have time to do much more than decorate a rustic Christmas tree and come up with simple and cute rustic gift wrap for our presents.

I’m doing my best to make up for it this year though.  I started holiday decorating in my breakfast area by replacing the gallery wall above my kitchen sideboard with rustic, farmhouse style open shelves and I am in love!

In case this your first time visiting, this is what the same area looked like when it was decorated it for fall.

I loved the gallery wall, but once we started making some other changes in the breakfast area (that I’ll show to you when they’re complete), I realized that this wall needed something different.  The open shelves give the wall some much needed dimension and allow me to display some of my favorite farmhouse accessories.  Even though the gallery wall went away, I had to keep Mr. Wilbur, so he can keep a close watch over everything.  Ha!

The stacked dishes and bowls with black rings along with the mugs on the mug tree all came from the Dollar Tree and were a such an affordable way to add some style to the shelves.  I’ve only recently started collecting wooden cutting boards and am on the lookout for a large rectangular one to go behind the circular shaped one.


Dishes and cutlery are on the open shelves in the kitchen.Pin


And remember the 10 Minute Rustic Luxe Christmas Lantern tutorial that I shared with you a few days ago?  Well, I stole the pinecones out of it because I knew they’d be perfect on my rustic shelves for Christmas.

I started with the decorations on the surface of the sideboard by simply laying a frosted faux pine garland across the back.  And to remind us all of what a joyous occasion Christmas is, I added wooden letters that are held in place with Command Strips.

…and a glitter Christmas house with some cutey patootey Christmas trees are nestled in among the garland.

I’m so glad that you stopped by today!  I’d love to connect with you over on Instagram and Pinterest!

    My friend – your home just keeps getting better and better and I am absolutely in love with the rustic shelves. And Mr Wilbur is right at home isn’t he? Love all the white dishes, and I have one of those “unique” Farmhouse alarm covers too. *wink Just gorgeous. Good job! xxoo

    1. Thank you, ladybug. I’m sooo glad to have them up in place of the gallery wall. It makes such a difference in this room. Can’t wait to share the rest of my Christmas kitchen during your All Through The House tour this coming week!

  7. This is absolutely stunning! I love everything about it. The shelves are perfect and I love the way you decorated it all for Christmas. I would have a hard time taking it all down after Christmas because it looks so pretty! It is fun touring with you this week!

    1. Thank you, Lindsay! I do struggle with that – when I get something just the way I want it, I don’t every want to change! Maybe I can switch out just a couple of things and keep it most of it the same for the winter.

  8. Your shelves are just beautiful! I love the Santa in the dome. Just lovely ideas

    1. Thank you, Vanessa. Wish I could have gotten a better photo of Santa, but I’m still struggling with learning how to photograph through glass. Those reflections are a killer!

    1. Thank you, Laura. A very merry to you too!

    1. Thank you so much, Sarah!

  9. I love your new shelves! They are decorated so beautifully! I love all the special little touches you have. The pinecone trees are one of my favorite. Can’t wait to see the rest of your home!

    1. Thank you, Leanne! I’m so far behind with my decorating! Those pinecone trees are ridiculously easy, but are one of my fave things on the shelves.

  10. Suzy, your shelves are beautiful! So many unique and special touches. Where did you find that tiny wreath? It is so cute! Wilbur seems to enjoy his new necklace, too!

  11. Beautiful! Did you make the shelves or buy them? Love them and would love to find some!

    1. Hi Lisa. I made the shelves myself. Super easy. I wanted beefy shelves instead of thin ones, so I went to a local building supply (not Lowes or Home Depot) and purchased a board that was 12″ wide x 120″ long x 2″ thick. They cut it in half for me so that I could haul it in my car. I gave the boards a good sanding and then added stain to them. That’s it – I didn’t seal them or anything.

  12. Oh my goodness, Suzy … I am dying over your shelves! I truly love everything about them! The Santa and deer are so darn cute … and that pig! I am mad about pigs so I think he’s my favorite part! I truly hope imitation is the sincerest form of flattery … because I am totally copying your ideas here! Happy Holidays!

    1. Awww….you’re too sweet Kimberly. Thank you! A very merry to you as well!

    1. Thank you! I’m pretty partial to Mr. Wilbur myself! Merry Christmas to you both!

  13. Love your shelves and the way you’ve decorated them. Looks great!

  14. Beautiful! I can’t believe those dishes are from the Dollar Tree!

    1. Thank you, Melissa! I went into the Dollar Tree looking for plain white dishes and there they were. I love them too!
