Coastal Christmas Home Tour – Part 2

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosures here.

Hey Friends!

I’m back today with Part 2 of my Coastal Christmas Home Tour. :)

Today it’s the kitchen, dining room and guest bath.
I don’t have a bunch to share in each because I really did keep things more simple this year.
I love an overly decorated home at Christmas, hee hee, but I just craved simplicity this year.
Just enough.
I can tend to go overboard some years. ;)

Before we get the show on the road, I’m going to leave a link to Part 1 of the tour in case you missed it.

I’ll also be linking all the projects I’ve done over the years in the text below.

I will also include a few affiliate links at the bottom so similar items in case you don’t want to make your own.
Or if there is something I found and loved. See my disclosure here.

Here’s what’s happening in my kitchen this year…..

Coastal Christmas Home Tour Part 2

My mirror, that I painted and relocated recently, decorated with the wreath I made. (I’m sharing the wreath DIY in the new year :) )
I used the ledge for cards in previous years and I really love it for just that.
So, it got “decorated” with Christmas cards again this year.

And like I mentioned in Part 1 of my Coastal Christmas Home Tour, I added red berries to the wreath.
Such an easy an inexpensive way to add Christmas cheer!
And I’m all about both of those….easy and inexpensive. Two words I love. ;)

The “Peace on Earth” came from Michael’s and is just one of their little wood cutouts.
I sprayed it with red paint and attached it to the mirror with double sided sticky tape.
Which lasted about a week! ha
So now it’s sitting on the inside of the wreath.

I filled my little wooden bowl with pretty ornaments.
That’s another inexpensive way to add some cheer around the house.
Like I said, I kept it simple.
I did also put this chalkboard (with these words still on it ;) ) from last year on top of the fridge but forgot to take a photo.

My kitchen on the other side looks just like last year…

…. but not for long! ;)
The brown paint is getting painted over with the same Sea Salt I used in the family room.
And a new tile back splash, new counter top and bright, white paint on the cabinets is also in store.
I can NOT wait to get started!

The Dining Room….

Coastal Christmas Home Tour Part 2

I moved my table around.
It used to be end to end with the natural, woven chairs on each end facing the kitchen.
I LOVE it this way. It feels SO roomy.
I’m also love, love, loving the newly painted dining room furniture and chairs…even the seats.
Details on all of that is here >>> “Easy Furniture Makeover

Coastal Christmas Home Tour Part 2

You may recognize some things from past years.
You can check them out here, Room Tours.
The chair decor is actually something I made 3 years ago now and have used every single year since!
I LOVE them. (obviously!)
And I added the little red berries to them last year y’all. ;)
You can find the “how-to” on them and a few other things I made that year, here >>> “Easy DIY Holiday Decor

You may also notice I removed the “Grateful, Thankful, Blessed” sign and replaced it with the “Believe” sign I painted last year.
Here’s where I hung it last year…

With my sweet, sweet Lexi. I miss her so. :(

Coastal Christmas Home Tour Part 2

I really like it up here, front and center.
I’m actually going to be putting the “Grateful” sign in the kitchen were the “Gather” sign is now.
I have plans for an all new “Gather” sign in the new year. Much larger and a totally different design.
Can’t wait to get it made and share with y’all. :)
And again, I added some white and red berries to my year-round wreath.

A little Santa hat on the side and done.

I simply filled the farmhouse tool box with pine cones, ornament pine cones and red berries (surprise, surprise!! ;) ).

The “Joy, Love, Peace” chalkboard platter is one I made a few years ago.

My “DIY Farmhouse Shelves” also got a bit of cheer.
My fancy reindeer from last year and guess what else?? … red berries …and white berry stems too.

Coastal Christmas Home Tour Part 2

My little thrifty makeover sign, “Merry & Bright” got hung on my “Wine Rack Decor“.

Coastal Christmas Home Tour Part 2

I added an ornament and a red berry swag to the shelf above.
I put one of my mercury glass vases in the middle below with some holiday greenery and candy canes.

The sign, with the gold lettering, seemed a perfect fit there.

For the table centerpiece, I simply added a few red berry stems to the vase.

The Coffee Bar ….

Coastal Christmas Home Tour Part 2

I added a plaid ribbon, a few berry swags and some candy canes (dollar store).

Oh and I also pulled out a holiday dish and filled it with tea bags.
Hot cocoa fixings are a necessity too.
I didn’t buy much new this year but did get a few things like the “Merry Christmas” candle holder that I filled with candy canes.
It and the little white trees came from Michael’s and were 50% plus I had a 25% off.
Can’t beat that!

The Guest Bath…

Coastal Christmas Home Tour Part 2

Again, simple was the name of the game this year.
I very simply added a few red berries to the grapevine wreath, a red ornament to the dish below and a few tiny Shiny Brites in the lid to the right.

Small little touches here and there.

Another little Shiny Bright ornament and a red berry swag.

I grabbed a bunch of these little red berry swags at Micheal’s when they were 75% off.
Love putting them in and around the house.

I hope you enjoyed Part 2 of my Coastal Christmas Home Tour. :)
I love sharing how I use the same decor, year after year, in different ways or locations.
Plus, decorating shouldn’t cost you a fortune! You can definitely do it on a budget.

PIN this for later for more Coastal Christmas Home inspiration! 


I’ll be back next week with a brand new furniture makeover that I just LOVE!  (I used a brand new Chalk Paint color :) )
And I’ll also be sharing my foyer, study and porch in the last part of my coastal Christmas home tour. >>>> (UPDATED: You can see it now, here >>> Coastal Christmas Home Tour, part 3)
